Ridgewood only has 4 Seniors, 2 that see the field. Freshmen QB and several other underclassmen that play significant roles. Should be interesting to see how their youth responds to week 11.
I think Amanda lost 2 games on the year,and they were to Bloom Carroll and Teays Valley who were Co-Champions of there league. Ridgewood is a solid team about every year, and usually makes the Playoffs most years. I think it will be a good game, but might have to give the edge to W. L. Ridgewood.
Well they have responded all year by going 9-1. The Generals make the Aces fold.
Looks like a toss up game with maybe a slight advantage to Ridgewood playing at home. AC seems to have played a slightly tougher schedule, at least win you look at opponents size, record wise not so much. Both teams non-conference was weak. Ridgewood did beat the best team on their schedule. (Indian Valley) AC lost to both their best opponents. (Teays Valley, Bloom Carrol) Their win against Ready was impressive, but this year was not your typical Ready team either.
Good luck to AC also. formerfcfan, I know you would know. Did Lancaster HS ever install Turf, or do they still have grass? I remember years ago before they changed 2nd round games to turf, that they did play host to quite a few playoff games. I even remember watching Ridgewood play there.
I've seen both teams play once this year. I have to give the edge to the Wood because of their D and run/pass game. Could see them winning by 2-3 scores. But, even if the game is close Ridgewood has a kicker (#17 I think) who's money from 35 out consistently and can even leg 40 plus. In close games it's always nice to have a good boot on your team. AC better bring their best effort to West Lafayette if they want to be in this one!
Too many big plays and athletes from Ridgewood for Amanda to handle. Ridgewoods freshmen QB is really going to be something. Believe he had over 300 yards of offense by himself, and had one of the best TD runs I have seen for awhile. I was surprised Ridgewood was able to exploit the AC defense the way they did. They crowded the line of scrimmage most of the night and boy did Ridgewood make them pay.
