Hudson 14, River Ridge 0

NEW PORT RICHEY — Hudson is finding it hard to put together two complete halves.

The Royal Knights defense did not make that task any easier, but the Cobras and quarterback Zack Wynn limped out of River Ridge with a 14-0 win Thursday.

Wynn took a direct hit to the knee early in the fourth quarter, but said the knee just felt bruised and he should be ready to go for next week's big district showdown with Gulf.

"I didn't feel it pop like last year against Zephyrhills," Wynn said.

The Royal Knights had difficulty moving the ball. River Ridge never got past the Hudson 15-yard line and on their only scoring threat the Knights missed a 53-yard field goal attempt right before halftime.

"I don't have any answers right now," Knights coach Tim Stevens said. "We practice and we practice to correct our mistakes and when it comes game time we just can't get anything going right now offensively."

Hudson traveled 59 yards on 10 plays on their first drive, which ended on a 5-yard touchdown run by Dylan Luke. The Cobras struck again in the second quarter on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Wynn to sophomore Dylan Buono. Wynn finished 17-of-27 for 160 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

"They are a lot better football team. They are physical and tough and they came out to play tonight," Hudson coach Mark Nash said.

    NEW YORK — A treasure, possibly worth half a million dollars, could lie behind a granite slab at the base of the Bloomingdale's flagship store in Manhattan in New York City, just a few feet from a window displaying designer handbags: a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.

    According to reports from 1930, this cornerstone of Bloomingdale's flagship store in New York City could have a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and other items entombed with instructions not to open for 200 years. The Ruth ball, if there and in good condition, could be worth a record $500,000. [ New York Times]
