Ridge Point entered district play last week with a huge target on their back.
Being District Champs for the last five consecutive years, they expect nothing but everyone's best. With a 52-0 win over Fort Bent Kempner last week, the Panthers entered Week 5 of their season ready for another win.
The Panther offense quickly set the momentum of the game with junior John Paul Richardson at QB scoring on the second play of the first drive.
When it comes to the Panthers' defense, their intensity can be very intimidating. Their front line was determined to apply pressure last night. They did that and much more causing a forced fumble on the Bulldogs' first drive of the game last night. The Panthers woke Austin's offense up quickly.
With a few penalties hurting the Panthers during the second quarter, it allowed the Bulldogs to get on the board. They entered half time with a 27-7 lead over the Bulldogs.
During the second half, the Bulldogs' defense couldn't stop those Panthers. While on the other hand, the Panthers' defense wasn't letting up. With the Panthers scoring another 21 points, they ended the game with a 48-7 win over the Fort Bend Austin Bulldogs.
But this is just the beginning with tons of playmakers on this Ridge Point team. Here's what you could expect to see from the Panthers throughout the rest of district play…
