Ridgewood NJ, after playing Wayne Hills to a 7-7 tie in regulation, Joe Grasso made an interception for Ridgewood in the first period of overtime to give the ball back to the offense for a chance to win the game. On 2nd-and-11 from the 26, a play action fake, a Brendan Chanley catch made the game-winning 26-yard touchdown catch despite pass interference being called on his defender. The play gave Ridgewood a 13-7 win over Wayne Hills on Saturday evening as it moved to 3-0.

Defense dominated the first half ending scoreless and saw the two teams combine for a mere 124 total yards. Ridgewood scored four plays into the third quarter on a 56-yard run by Bobby Kuentzler on a fullback trap up the middle.

Wayne Hills responded with a touchdown on the ensuing series, with quarterback Joe Riina finding Tay Shim down the right sideline for a 34-yard touchdown.

Both teams had field goal opportunities, with Ridgewood’s 19-yard try being blocked with 4:14 to go. Wayne Hills then moved to the Ridgewood 10-yard line, but a sack moved them back two yards on third down. That became critical when the 29-yard field goal try hit the crossbar, bounded into the air and fell short.

  1. Love it when Wayne Hills loses.

  2. Let’s see if Ridgewood plays Bergen catholic.

  3. Apples and oranges when you compare Bergen Catholic and Ridgewood.

    BC should be embarrassed with what they have become (a football factory).

  4. I know what you’re saying in the end it’s all about business. They are doing the same thing as Don Bosco and other schools did throughout do years you know that. But they do have a good majority of the best players in the area.
