The Ridgeway Roadrunners got an exciting win over an undefeated Munford team tonight 38-32 behind a balanced offensive attack. Jr QB Quincey Casey rushed for 2TD and passed for another TD and 2pt conversion in leading an offense that kept Munford off balanced all night. The Roadrunners fell behind 7-0 when a Munford RB ripped Ridgeway's defense for a 92 yard TD run on it's 2nd offensive play of the game. The Roadrunners defense would have trouble stopping the triple option all night. But it was Ridgeway's offense that did the heavy lifting tonight.

Ridgeway got TDs from Casey 2TD rush, 1TD passing, Sr RB Cameron Stansbury 1 TD rushing, Jr RB Cameron Sneed 1 TD rushing and the return of Sr WR Kundarrius Taylor 1 TD rec. Ridgeway's offensive line did a great job opening holes for the running game as Stansbury was effective running hard all night. So WR Jaylon Monger also played a key role coming up with 3 rec tonight.

Ridgeway's defense did have a fumble recovery tonight, but must play better if the Roadrunners are to be a contender for the playoffs this season. The Roadrunners improve to 2-4 on the season and get ready for Overton next week for Homecoming.

Roadrunners get much needed win, Defense gets 1st shutout

Emerging Jr QB Quincey Casey continued his improving play tonight with 4 TD passes over a lesser opponent, doing exactly what Coach Duron Sutton wanted to see, a win! The Roadrunners took an opportunity to feel good about themselves after starting the season 0-4 against stiff competition. Casey connected on TD passes of 22, 17, 30 and 12 yard strikes. He was sharp all night playing just the 1st half of the lopsided game. The smooth slender QB has now gone over 1,000 yards passing on the season. Ridgeway got contributions from everybody tonight. Jr WR Cameron Comeaux caught his 3rd and 4th TD of the season. So WR Jaylen Monger caught a beautiful diving 39 yard TD, and Sr TE Robert Gillard hauled in 2 TD receptions. Jr RB Jonathon Holmes rushed for more than 100 yards (2 TD) and had a galloping 53 yard TD scamper.  Sr RB Cameron Stansbury also had a rush TD, as well as Fr QB Anterion Martin a 1 yard QB sneak playing the 2nd half. Ridgeway Jr RB Kameron Sneed scampered from 22 yards out and added a 2pt run to cap the scoring.The much maligned Roadrunner defense enjoyed a night of dominance as they held Kingsbury scoreless. So CB Elijah Conley had a pick 6 TD return of 60 yards. The Roadrunners also go an interception from Jr LB Antonio Smith and they recovered 1 fumble. Sr DE Willie Corey had 7 tackles and 1 sack. It was a great bounce back feel good game for the Roadrunners improve to 1-4 on the season.

The 2017 Roadrunner football team was expected to struggle replacing so many seniors from last year's squad. But nobody anticipated losing to Kirby and giving up 55 points in the process. In my 10 years at Ridgeway as football video and website coordinator, this is the first time I can remember losing to Kirby. The Roadrunners offense did manage to keep the game close, even taking the lead at one point. But it was the Roadrunners defense that simply could not find a way to slow down Kirby rushing attack. The Kirby backs ran around, through, and past Ridgeway's defense all night, amassing a whopping 385 yards rushing including a back breaking 90 yard TD run to seal the deal with 1:31 left in the 4th quarter.


The Roadrunners Jr QB Quincey Casey played an exceptional game passing for 329 yards on 18 completions (18-25) including a 80 yard bomb and 17 yard pass for TDs. He would have had more if not for several dropped passes by the Roadrunners young WRs. Sr RB Cameron Stansbury rushed for 3 short run TDs and two 2 pt conversions in the game.


The Roadrunners did get 4 interceptions on the night, including a 47 yard TD from Sr FS London White (3 ints) and 1 int from So CB Mykhel Taylor. But the story of the night was how Ridgeway defense missed so many tackles and gave up so many big plays. Ridgeway special team also gave up a 70 yard kick return TD. The Roadrunners fall to 0-3 and must quickly regroup to try and get a win on the road.

Roadrunners lacking on both sides of the ball

From the opening possession to the final whistle, it was no contest.  Lost in a sea of penalties, turnovers, missed tackles, QB sacks and overall lack of physical presence.....the Roadrunners didn't seem to have the answers to correct their flaws. There is really not a lot to say about the game. It was 16-0 after the 1st quarter, 30-0 at halftime....and basically the Tigers played a lot of backups and coasted in the 2nd half in route to an easy 42-0 win over Ridgeway. Said one Whitehaven Tiger fan after the game "What has happened to Ridgeway?"

ROADRUNNERS START SLOW, LACK OF EXPERIENCE SHOWS

Aug 18, 2017   Story by LC







Ridgeway football kicked off the 2017 season with a roster full of  untested and unproven players. If the 1st game is any indication of what is to come, it might be a long tough season of learning and growing. The Roadrunners fell tonight to MUS 37-16. Many new starters are seeing their 1st extensive action as varsity players. So it was expected that it would take a little time to get their sea legs about them in game one.


The Roadrunners have a new starting QB Quincey Casey, who completed 2 TD passes tonight in his first varsity start. That's a positive to build on. The defense was led by Sr DE Willie Corey (7 tackles, 1 sack). The Roadrunners will need to get better production from their run game. Said Coach Sutton before the game "LC, we're young and we will see what we got tonight". After this game, it appears the Roadrunners have a lot of work to do on offense and defense. The Roadrunners will play Whitehaven next week.
