CAMP HILL – The Lyman Ward Rangers played possibly the best half of football that they had played all season, but the second half was not so kind.

After leading 7-6 at the break, Cornerstone Christian rallied in the second half to take a 31-7 win, spoiling the Lyman Ward Homecoming celebration.

“It’s a familiar theme with us,” Lyman Ward Coach Leon Day said. “When we are at full strength and fresh we show signs of being a pretty good football team. But when he get a injury or lose a lineman on offense or defense, we just don’t have the depth to stay with the teams we play.”

Cimino Iverson scored the Rangers’ lone touchdown on an 11-yard run, but from there, the Cornerstone defense made the Rangers go the long way for the rest of the night.

“The sad thing is that the first half was the best half of Lyman Ward football I have seen,” Day said. “Even after the injuries and we got behind, they kept fighting. That’s the lesson we have to learn from as we move forward.”

The loss drops the Rangers to 0-5 on the season. Lyman Ward travels to face Ashford Academy next Friday night in Ashford.
