Hudson 43, River Ridge 28

NEW PORT RICHEY — Zack Wynn threw for three touchdowns and Dylan Luke ran for three scores as Hudson held off host River Ridge 43-28 Friday night in a Class 4A-6 matchup.

The Royals Knights' Kenny Toce threw for a score at the end of the third quarter, then after River Ridge recovered an onside kick, Toce added a 1-yard run to narrow Hudson's advantage to 35-28.

"We had two offensive plays in the whole friggin' third quarter," Hudson coach Mark Nash said. "On that onside kick, we debated whether or not we should have put a hands team in, and in retrospect we should have. … No, I don't think the kids were hanging their heads, but I might have been a little bit."

Hudson responded, Wynn connecting with James Tello for an 84-yard TD. Hudson turned back two other River Ridge drives, recovering a fumble and intercepting a pass.

The second quarter belonged to Hudson as Wynn and company outscored River Ridge 20-14.

"The way our offense was running, we couldn't be stopped," Wynn said. "Every time we got on the field we moved."
