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."

    If you're walking, you're hitting, as the saying goes, so it's a good sign that RF Steven Souza Jr. reached base four times, with a hit by pitch, a single and two walks. Hitters feel they are coming out of slumps when they are walking, because they are seeing the ball better. That's good news for the Rays …
