Ridgewood Rebounds, Overwhelms Passaic

Maroons steamroll winless Passaic 56-0 Friday night in a home game.

The Ridgewood High School football team (3-2) brought an emphatic end to their two game losing streak on Friday night, steamrolling a winless Passaic team by a score of 56-0. 

Tim Bonanno led the Maroon offense with 106 first-half rushing yards and a touchdown. 

Jamal Locke and Jack Foresman also contributed to the offensive explosion on Friday night. The junior quarterback, Locke, ran for a touchdown, and threw for another to tight end Connor Van Caugherty. Foresman provided two rushing touchdowns. 

Meanwhile, Young Hoe Koo led the Ridgewood defense with three first-half interceptions, one of which he returned 32 yards for a touchdown. 

The lopsided victory was the result of a total team effort with Jason Gibson bringing in a third quarter touchdown.

The Maroon offense rolled for a total of 314 rushing yards, and its stifling defense allowed a mere 61 yards of total offense for Passaic. 

Ridgewood will look to continue its strong play when they travel to Fair Lawn on Oct. 20.

56 to 0, probably kept first string in the whole game. This way he can get a page full of statistics. Hope you are all proud.

6 points scored in second half. Doesn't sound like first string all game to me.

I think the Freshman team could have beaten Passaic.

Actually I play on the team and the starters were replaced by the JV players at half time.

JAFO.....have you forgotten how badly "The Maroons" were beaten by Paramus Catholic the prior week ? Their "Freshman team could have beaten" Ridgewood as easily as you indicate the Maroons beat Passaic.Excuses made when beaten badly (they are bigger and badder and away game and no field in GR ect), but when win comment "our freshmen team could have beaten them". Seriously ! Great teams need support, and learn from failures.. as well as from successes.
