In the second of a three day stretch of games, the Oregon Ducks(6-0) defeated North Dakota(2-3) 91-76 at Matthew Knight Arena in a game that looked decidedly different in the second half than the first half
I liked when I saw some of the Oregon football players posing with families for photos and some signing footballs for fans. They are a great group of athletes. All-in-all, it was an amazing afternoon and evening spent being part of the Duck Nation. Go Ducks in your bowl game. Make yourselves and your Duck Nation proud.
Lions Open Large Lead Early; Ravens Rally
The kicking game was everything in the early going. An inexplicable squib kick by Ridgeview to open the game led to a short field, and a 7-0 deficit shortly thereafter, on Cottage Grove quarterback Scotty Hitner’s 1 yard dive.
The Ravens dodged another self inflicted wound after a shanked punt, when Hitner’s pass was deflected, and intercepted in the Ridgeview end zone by Tanner O’Neil, but the next 2 shanked punts led to 2 more short fields, and a 17-0 deficit not 3 minutes into the second quarter.
Things finally turned the Ravens’ way in special teams, when Jack Bowman took the ensuing kickoff back 62 yards, and Ridgeview cashed in 25 yards and 8 plays later, on Boomer Flemming’s 1 yard touchdown and 2 point conversion runs to cut the deficit to 17-8.
