Turnovers doom Nipomo football team in loss to Nordhoff

Nordhoff High's football team forced four Nipomo turnovers and converted them all into touchdowns as the Titans (0-4) fell 56-13 at home on Friday.

Nordhoff scored five second-quarter touchdowns, including a 26-yard fumble return for a score.

Nipomo outgained the Rangers 340 yards to 313, but could not force any takeaways. Nipomo quarterback Luke Shurtleff completed 23 of 32 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown but had two interceptions. Josh Sundberg had five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown.

“Turnovers cost us again by giving them four short fields,” Nipomo coach Russ Edwards said. “We are looking forward to starting league play next week.”

Nordhoff running back Tayler Livingston had 114 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries. Quarterback Tanner Workman was 12-for-15 passing for 150 yards and three touchdowns passing.
