Dufur heads to 1A championship game

Faced with adversity, the Rangers hold strong for a 58-28 victory

HILLSBORO – Early last Tuesday morning on his way to school, Dufur junior Abraham Kilby hit some black ice on the road, skidded to an embankment and flipped three times into a ditch. Medically cleared by doctors, and after getting the final affirmation from head coach Jack Henderson on game day, Kilby dressed down for Saturday’s 1A state semifinal football game against Falls City, and posted five tackles with two sacks, one of those coming on a fourth down play late in the third quarter that kept his team ahead 38-22, in what was a 58-28 victory at Liberty High School in Hillsboro.

    Rangers are ready to continue historic run

    Dufur plays Falls City at noon Saturday from Liberty High School

    The last time Dufur played Falls City in August, it was a 50-12 blowout win at the Dufur Eight-Man Classic as the Rangers expanded on a 20-6 halftime lead with 22 unanswered points. That victory and the second-half dominance had some highlight moments, but heading into Saturday’s semifinal game it could be a double-edged sword.
