WESLEY CHAPEL — In front of a packed house on homecoming night,  Wiregrass Ranch defeated  Ridgewood 37-14.  

The Bulls went  up 17-0 with little less than four  minutes left in the first quarter by utilizing a no-huddle offense. Their  impressive defense held  Ridgewood to no  first downs in the first quarter .

Two failed fourth-down conversions in Wiregrass territory stymied  the Rams (1-6).  Wiregrass’ defense, led by Jaye Miner, was able to  plug holes and stand tough  in their own territory.

Late in the second quarter, the Rams faced  fourth down on the Wiregrass 4-yard line and failed to reach  the end zone.
A couple of late scores  were not enough for Ridgewood.  

Junior quarterback Shane Bucenell led the Bulls (3-3)  with an impressive performance . He used  several receivers as he passed  for 117 yards while completing 9 of 16 passes.  He also rushed  five times for 64 yards. He finished  with two passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown.

Bulls senior running back Gerald Grady also had a big game . He consistently allowed the Bulls to string together long drives with big gains.  He ran  nine times for 78 yards and one  touchdown.

The Rams also had breakout performances from their star players. Junior quarterback Nick Michaels went 12 of 24 for  144  yards.

Sophomore running back Glass Wilson had 144 rushing yards on 21 carries with one  touchdown.
