R’mont too much
J.P. Jones had scoring dashes of 56 and 20 yards, and Brandon Swift added a couple of short scoring plunges to lead Ridgemont to a 36-8 romp over Greenfield in middle school football Thursday.
R’mont put up 20 unanswered points in the second quarter after a scoreless first period.
Alden Marvin had Ridgemont’s other TD on a one-yard run, while both Heath Cary and Lexi Collins tacked on two-point conversions.
A 31-yard pass from Bruce Ragsdale to Jones set up the Mustangs’ first score, while Jaylee Hobbs’ 30-yard reception positioned the victors for their second TD. Two more Ragsdale completions — one to Marvin, the other to Swift — set up Swift’s short TD run.
On defense, Cary and Hunter Smith both had five tackles, while nose guard Emanuell Morgan had a sack and four solo tackles. Jones came up with an interception.
Ridgemont (2-0) plays at Lake County next Thursday.
UCMS softball squad
blanked by G’field

Crittenden stuck out three on the mound, but was charged with the pitching loss.
