Boys Junior Varsity Football, Boys Varsity Football · Lexington Starts Strong But Ridge View Blazes Back


In the 2020 opener Friday evening, Lexington took advantage of a turnover on the opening kickoff to take a 6-0 lead as senior Carlton Finney ran it in for the score.  After a 12 play drive, Ridge View scored on the ensuing possession to take a 7-6 lead.  But the Wildcat offense got back to the end zone, covering 70 yards in 9 plays, capped off by another Finney scoring run.  But the Blazers answered again, scoring on a 34-yard touchdown strike.

The score stood in favor of Ridge View at 14-12 at the half but the Lexington offense was shut down the rest of the way, unable to mount a scoring threat.  The Blazers scored on a 25-yard pass, a 69-yard punt return, and a 36-yard pick-six.  With 3:41 left in the game, they added a field goal to make the final score 38-12.

Lexington (0-1) will host Dutch Fork (2-0) this Friday.
