HUDSON — One tough district game leads to another.
Hudson was able to dodge a tough Ridgewood squad Friday night, as the Cobras relied upon its passing attack in a 47-26 victory at Cobra Stadium in a Class 5A-District 7 contest.
“Such an improved team Ridgewood is,” Hudson coach Mark Kantor said. “They’re really tough running that power I with Glass Wilson, but we finally came to play defensively late. We can’t look ahead to that November 1st game versus Anclote until we beat River Ridge. A playoff spot will be on the line next week.”
Both teams traded scores leading into the latter half of the fourth and decisive quarter of play. After Ridgewood (1-7, 1-2) tied the game at 26 on Glass Wilson’s 5-yard score with 4:13 left in the game, Hudson (5-2, 3-0) retook the lead for good on its next possession when tailback Noah Siegrest scored on a 56-yard scamper.
The Cobras opened up the game from there and ended up tacking on two more touchdowns to close out the scoring.
Ridgewood 0 14 6 6 — 26
Hudson 0 19 7 21 — 47
