Preseason football: River Ridge 67, Gulf 13

NEW PORT RICHEY — River Ridge's duo of quarterback Joshua Maisel and wide receiver George Cordova proved to be too much offense for visiting Gulf on Friday night.

Maisel finished the night 8-for-12 passing for 179 yards and two touchdowns, both to Cordova, who ended his night with four catches totaling 123 yards in a 67-13 preseason rout of the Buccaneers.

River Ridge's running attack was just as energized as their passing game, scoring six touchdowns of its own.

The junior varsity quarterback for River Ridge, Patrick Mathieson, entered the game in the fourth quarter and completed his only two pass attempts — and both went for touchdowns.

Dallas Maclachlain blocked a punt on Gulf's previous possession before catching his touchdown pass from 14 yards on the next play.

The other touchdown was to Noah Gobin from 32 yards as time expired.

The Royal Knights open their regular season next week at home against Fivay. The Buccaneers will start at home against West Palm Beach King's Academy.
