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.
