After a rough start to the season, Woodridge football seems to have righted the ship.
The Bulldogs picked up their second straight road win Friday night at Cloverleaf, as Woodridge scored a 34-19 win over the Colts. Woodridge improved to 2-4, 2-1 in the Portage Trail Conference Metro Division.
Woodridge pushed out to a 17-0 lead in the second quarter, as the Bulldogs were able to get their passing game going.
Bulldogs quarterback Andrew Mekeal had a great night, going 18-of-25 for 308 yards and four touchdowns. The touchdowns included stikes of 46 and 16 yards to Elijah Arnett, a 50-yard bomb to D.J. Snyder and a 24-yarder in the first quarter to Andrew Albright.
Arnett caught 10 passes for 166 yards, while Snyder had six receptions for 110 yards.
Adding to the Bulldogs’ attack was running back Denver Cody, who finished with 23 carries for 100 yards.
Kicker Tanner Laughorn also had a solid night, as he nailed a 28-yard field goal in the first quarter and a 29-yard field goal in the third quarter.
Cloverleaf quarterback Brody Stallings had a solid night, going 9-of-13 for 74 yards and a touchdown passing, while leading the Colts rushing attack with 128 yards on 24 carries. However, the Colts were down 34-6 midway through the third quarter and never were able to climb out of the hole.
Woodridge returns to Lahoski Field Friday to take on Field at 7 p.m.
In other local action, Cuyahoga Falls looked to carry the moment from its first win 23 game into Friday’s contest at Wadsworth, but the undefeated Grizzlies were in no mood for an upset.
Wadsworth scored a 42-0 win over the Black Tigers at Art Wright Stadium, dropping Falls to 1-5, 1-2 in the Suburban League National Conference.
Falls will return home to face Hudson Friday at 7 p.m.
