Ridgeview Cottage Grove 4A Championship

Lions Open Large Lead Early; Ravens Rally

 

Scotty Hitner DSC02901The 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.
