One of the highest-scoring contests in recent memory also featured an amazing comeback that came up just short.

Host Ridgewood successfully held off Gulf 62-54 after the Buccaneers recovered two onside kicks in the fourth quarter to tie.

The Rams (2-7), led by sophomore tailback Glass Wilson, jumped out to a two-touchdown lead. Wilson finished with 309 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

Gulf (0-8) did not roll over despite the deficit. Quarterback Avery Welch led the Buccaneers back in the fourth quarter. With two rushing touchdowns in the last 12 minutes, Welch capitalized enough to tie the game back up for the winless road team.

When Wilson punched the ball in with only 25 seconds remaining, Welch refused to give up. A final-play Hail Mary fell just short.
