River Ridge 20, Ridgewood 14

NEW PORT RICHEY — River Ridge scored three touchdowns in three minutes in the fourth quarter to get past Ridgewood 20-14.

Ridgewood's Tommy Kinder started the scoring on an interception, and the Rams (2-7, 0-4) scored again on a 25-yard run by Cameron Rodriguez for a 14-0 lead.

With only four minutes left River Ridge (3-6, 1-3) got in gear as the Royal Knights started scoring. Quarterback Kenny Toce found Tyler Allberry for the first score, then found Cameron Hokanson to tie things up.

On its ensuing possession Ridgewood fumbled and River Ridge jumped on it, taking over at the Rams' 35-yard line. The Knights' Stavros Arianas picked up a rushing touchdown and a two-point conversion pass from Toce to Austin Schwarz. Toce finished with 175 passing.

"I am very pleased with the kids' efforts," River Ridge coach Tim Stevens said. "They did not give up after being down, they all had great spirits. We used a lot of passing plays later in the game due to the fact that our running plays were not working so we had to go to a hurry-up spread offense."
