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.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
