The Spudders had no answer against Woodland but hope to repeat a little Week 9 magic against Columbia River.

Special teams to offense:

Hunter Abrams returned a kickoff 25 yards to set up Ridgefield in strong position for its first touchdown.

A few plays later, it was Abrams who found himself in the end zone after a 17-yard touchdown run.

In the second half, it looked to me that it was Connor Lewis who had a strong return, setting up the Spudders again.

Jeremy Martin had a 22-yard run to spark the drive. Abrams finished it with a 1-yard TD plunge.

Coach Speak:

What did Kim Ulman think about his team’s performance in Week 8? “We played very well at times. Just gave up too many big plays.”

MVP on offense: Hunter Abrams. Besides his TDs, he rushed for more than 90 yards.

MVP on defense: Linebacker Andrew Rommel.

Thoughts on Week 9 vs. Columbia River: “We look to finish the season by playing our best game yet,’’ Ulman said. “Hopefully we can help break up the three-way tie for second.”

Note:

Going into Week 9, Columbia River is tied, in the loss column, with Washougal and Woodland. It is very possible all three could finish in a tie. Ridgefield, though, remembers beating Columbia River in Week 9 last year, keeping the Chieftains from sharing a league title.
