Football: Springstead 24, Ridgewood 7

NEW PORT RICHEY — Despite the support of a packed house, Ridgewood fell to Springstead 24-7 Friday.

The Eagles were led by senior Brian Beeker, who scored on a 52-yard run for a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. With senior quarterback Scott Kujak out, the Rams turned to utility player Ralphy Dawkins. He tied the score at 7 with a 1-yard run late in the first quarter.

With four seconds left in the first half, Springstead's Cody Emmerman hit a 16-yard field goal to put the Eagles up 10-7 at halftime. Springstead (1-3) came out in the second half ready to score as Beeker hit David Stevens on a 8-yard out route, putting the Eagles up 17-7.

The Rams (0-4) used a heavy dose of senior Cameron Rodriguez, who rushed for 116 yards on 25 carries. Beeker led the Eagles with 138 rushing yards and one touchdown. The Rams tried to come back but Springstead defensive tackle Dylan Gearhart picked up a Rodriguez fumble and returned it for the final score.
