NEW PORT RICHEY — There’s only one word to describe Ridgewood’s performance Friday night and all season — resilient.
The Rams, down 21-6 at the half, came roaring back to defeat Wesley Chapel 30-28 behind the efforts of bruising tailback Glass Wilson.
Wilson, a sophomore, ran for 218 yards and a touchdown on 38 carries as Ridgewood (1-5) worked its way back into the game.
“Glass is just ridiculous,” coach Jay Fulmer said. “I’ve had a lot of backs in my career, but he’s as good a sophomore as I’ve ever seen. He’s a war horse who runs with no regard for his own body.”
Junior quarterback Nick Michaels connected on two touchdown passes, sophomore fullback Clarence Farria had a career-best performance with 12 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown as well.
