Football: River Ridge 38, Hudson 0

HUDSON — River Ridge's rushing attack led by Austin Schwarz was too much for Hudson on Thursday night in a 38-0 romp in the season finale for both teams.

The Royal Knights (6-4) opened the scoring when junior Brian Clinkscale took the ball up the middle from 5 yards out just four minutes in.

The Cobras (0-11) fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, giving River Ridge the ball on the Hudson 14-yard line. Five plays later, Schwarz scored the first of his two touchdowns, this one from 2 yards out, extending the lead to 14-0.

With just more than four minutes remaining in the second quarter, quarterback Joshua Maisel added a rushing touchdown from 11 yards out.

Schwarz added his second touchdown with seven seconds left in the first half.

River Ridge took a 35-0 lead with four minutes left in the third quarter when Christian McClure added the Royal Knights' fifth rushing touchdown. The Knights finished with 295 yards rushing on 41 attempts.

River Ridge kicker Phil Molina was 5-for-5 on extra points. When the Knights had a fourth and 1 with just more than two minutes remaining, Molina kicked a 38-yard field goal for the final score.

The Cobras' offense struggled to get anything going. Three of their five first-half drives ended in a three and out; all five drives ended with a punt.
