Football: Ridgewood 16, River Ridge 14

NEW PORT RICHEY — Ridgewood (3-6, 3-2) kicked a field goal with less than a minute remaining to defeat River Ridge (2-7, 1-3) 16-14 Friday night, the Rams' third straight victory.

The Royals Knights took a one-point lead in the fourth quarter but Rams backup quarterback Scott Kujak drove team his team down the field, allowing Joshua Gray to kick a 28-yard field goal with just more than 40 seconds remaining.

The Rams intercepted a pass by the Knights' Josh Maisel to seal the win.

"That's a professional style kicker right there," Ridgewood coach Kent Reed said of Gray.

Maisel opened the scoring with a 29-yard run that followed a fake punt for a first down.

The Rams answered on their next possession. Kujak, who hasn't practiced with the team in six weeks, stepped in for the injured Bob Peck. Kujak completed five of his first six passes, including a 23-yard touchdown to Josh Bonaparte.

Gray kicked a 40-yard field goal before the half that put the Rams up 10-7. Late in the fourth quarter Maisel capped a seven-play drive when he rushed for his second touchdown, from 10 yards out.
