Friday night the Ridge High School seniors, football players, the band and cheerleaders, were recognized for their hard work and dedication to the program.  For all the outpouring of support from fans, parents and coaches, the night on the turf would end in disappointment.  Bridgewater would win 35-0 in a dominating performance.   

Ridge never seemed to get started and Panthers jumped on every opportunity. “It’s a good team and they played well,” offered Ridge head football coach Bill Tracy after the game.  “They are well coached; they did a very good job tonight, that’s for sure.  They are going to be tough in the state playoffs.”

 “We’ve got work to do,” said Tracy.  “For us, we’ve just got a few days left together and we want to try to finish strong.”

“It has been a pleasure cheering for these boys,” said senior and Football cheer captain Julia Powers.  “They gave it all on the field, but they had tough night.  It was so cold.  I am so proud of them.”

 Ridge will be playing a consolation game next week.  The opponent, location and time is still to be determined.
