Football: Wiregrass Ranch 15, Ridgewood 0

WESLEY CHAPEL — Wet weather played havoc Friday night in Wesley Chapel. With completion percentages low, Wiregrass Ranch and Ridgewood mainly dueled it out on the ground in a hard-fought 15-0 Bulls victory.

Wiregrass Ranch (2-2) senior quarterback James Tringali completed 9 of 23 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Antwan Prince and Donovan Blackman caught 2- and 18-yard touchdowns. The point after attempt on the first touchdown was wide and the pass failed on the two-point conversion attempt later.

Rudy Walker was the Bulls' main rushing threat, running for 63 yards on 10 carries. The Bulls fumbled twice, losing one.

The Ridgewood (0-4) offense was at a standstill for most of the game thanks to the Bulls' defense. Held to 91 yards, the Rams picked up only four first downs. Cameron Rodriguez, who completed his only pass out of the nine total passing attempts for the Rams, rushed 25 times for 46 yards. The first pass attempt by Ralphy Dawkins did not come until the Rams' 13th play.

Ridgewood fumbled four times, but recovered each time.

The Rams' longest gain of the game came on a fake punt, when they picked up 38 yards to convert a first down.
