Mavricks roll up the Ragin' Bulls 48-14

The Marvin Ridge Mavericks continue to cruise through the South Piedmont Conference.  They picked off Hickory Ridge just one week after beating the Concord Spiders.   Hickory Ridge, did have a much better start this week, than what they showed on opening week at Carson High.  But, by the second quarter the Bulls found themselves in a game that saw a high powered passing attack.

Hickory Ridge scored first after a muffed punt by the Mavericks return man.  Brian Baltimore, scored on a 20 yard run.  The Mavericks matched it with their own 20 yard run.  Hickory Ridge fought right back answering the call with another great run off the left side by Baltimore with a run of 41 yards.  But that would be the last time Hickory Ridge would light the score board.  Marvin Ridge went to the air for an 40 yard pass to the end zone to tie the score at 14 all.

The second quarter was all Marvin Ridge scoring on a 5 yard rush, then extended their lead with a 14 yard pass completion.  After the half, Marvin Ridge scored 2 more times in the 3rd. Both scores came on 2 running plays, 8 yards and 1 yard to really push the game beyond reach.  The final nail came in the 4th quarter when Marvin Ridge hit on an 16 yard pass completion to the left corner of the end zone.  Even though Hickory Ridge was called for Pass Interference the Mavericks receiver held on to the ball.

With out two early turn overs by Marvin Ridge which lead to Bulls scoring, the score could have been worse than the final margin of 34 points.

Marty Paxton is going to have to make some adjustments if the Ragin' Bulls are going to repeat last years run into the state playoffs.  Only 2 weeks into the season and HRHS is averaging 2 TD's per game.

The Ragin' Bulls start conference play this coming Friday night with a home game against the Central Cabarrus Vikings.

Come on out and support your Ragin' Bulls.

Go Bulls!
