Football: Mitchell 33, Ridgewood 0

TRINITY — Mitchell continued its perfect start to the 2011 season with a 33-0 home shutout of Ridgewood on Friday night.

Mordell Holley rushed for three touchdowns on his way to 114 total rushing yards, and Dan Barber ran for a 40-yard touchdown to let quarterback Spencer Whittaker off the hook on a disappointing night through the air.

Whittaker completed 1 of 7 passes for 5 yards, and rushed for 15 yards.

Freddie Jones had eight rushes for 40 yards. Jones was brought down on the 1-yard line after a 33-yard run, then Holley finished the drive.

Codi Folsom missed the first point-after attempt, causing coach Scott Schmitz to call for a two-point conversion after the second touchdown, converted by Whittaker on the ground.

Max Gebler also sacked Ridgewood quarterback Bob Peck in the end zone less than a minute before the half for a safety, putting the Mustangs (3-0) up 23-0.

The rest of the Mustangs defense held Ridgewood to a total of 61 yards. TJ Petrizzi rushed six times for 49 yards, but could not find the end zone. And the Rams (0-3) never got near field goal territory on any of their possessions.

Peck went 3-for-11 passing for 8 yards and lost 16 yards total on the ground. Tyler Vito had 13 rushes for 4 yards. 

Mitchell opens district play next week at River Ridge, while Ridgewood travels to Hudson.
