Prep football: Toledo 34, Ridgefield 21



Jesse Wallace threw two touchdowns passes, including one in the fourth quarter to seal the win over Toledo.

Although the Spudders were outgained by over 100 yards, the game was a back and forth tug-of-war battle for the majority of the game.

Toledo struck first, as Danny Aguilar punched in a 1 yard touchdown run to take a 6-0 lead, as the two point conversion was missed.

Ridgefield responded with a 1 yard touchdown run of their own, with Ian Williams taking the lead for the Spudders as the first quarter came to a close.

Toledo answered with an 8-yard run from Cody Meier, breaking tackles and finding the end zone. Quarterback Jesse Wallace ran in the two point conversion for a 14-7 lead.

Immediately after, Ridgefield tied the score with a 23 yard run by their own quarterback, Clayton Farr.

Ridgefield regained control in Toledo territory with only a few minutes remaining, giving the Spudders an excellent opportunity to take the lead and all the momentum into the third quarter.

Ridgefield fumbled, however, and Toledo countered with a 34 yard pass to “do-it-all-man-kicker/receiver/defensive end-man” Ronnie Boone, giving the Indians a halftime lead of 20-14.

As the momentum swayed towards the Indians, Meier punched in another touchdown.

The tug-of-war continued as Clayton Farr tossed a 71 yard pass to Michael Knox to put the game within striking distance. The kick was good, with the Spudders facing a 26-21 deficit.

The score remained unchanged until the fourth quarter, when Wallace found Boone yet again in the endzone, to take the lead and finalize the score at 34-21.

Toledo scored five touchdowns, attempting a two point conversion each time.

Farr, in his first game of the season, finished 7-17 with 150 yards through the air.
