WEST LAFAYETTE — Ridgewood High stayed unbeaten on the young season rolling past county rival Coshocton High by a final count of 34-19 on Friday night.
With the home field win, the Generals improved to a perfect 3-0 while the Redskins are now 0-3.
"I thought our offensive line was outstanding tonight and I thought Coach (Chris) Cabot called a great game offensively," RHS head coach John Slusser stated. "We were able to stretch the field and it helps that our quarterback (Kolton Alexander) is pretty good."
Ridgewood received the opening kickoff and went right to work, scoring just two minutes into the game on a two-yard run by Isaiah Lamneck to make it 7-0.
The Redskins (0-3) were equal to the task with a 14-play drive that was capped by a Gavin Jackson one-yard scoring plunge to knot the score with 4:41 left in the first quarter.
Alexander’s four-yard run put the Orange and Black ahead 14-7 at the 2:23 mark of the first quarter.
Tyler Caudy of the Generals then pounced on the loose pigskin to snuff out a CHS drive at the Generals’ 41-yard line
RHS cashed the turnover into three points when Keith Claxon connected on a 35-yard field goal to make it 17-7.
Sophomore Kaden Smith scored from 12 yards out with just 1:22 left in the second quarter to give Ridgewood an 24-7 lead at the intermission.
The lead grew to 31-7 midway through the third when Alexander scored from five yards away.
Alexander finished with 170 yards passing on 9-of-12 through the air while also adding 110 yards rushing on 15 attempts.
