Ridgewood Generals Team News

Following Thursday night's

One week is in the books for the 2015 high school football season, so it’s time for my weekly power rankings of who I think are the top five teams in the area.

1. DOVER TORNADOES  The Tornadoes picked up an easy win over Cleveland Central Catholic in week one, but it was the way they won that really impressed me.

Ridgewood scored on offense, defense and special teams in the first 10 minutes of the contest en route to a   41-20 win over visiting       Bellaire in aseason opener for both teams at newly refurbished Ridgewood Stadium in West Lafayette on Saturday night.

Opening Kick-Off, Part Two

Following Thursday night's three games, a full slate of 2015 season openers kicks off tonight. Here's some information to get you ready for the match-ups:

• Results from Thursday: 

WEST LAFAYETTE  Ridgewood’s stadium has a brand-new look, but the Generals will look mighty familiar on the field.

Especially on the defensive side.

The Generals return a number of players defensively from a unit that gave up an average of 13 points a game during the season.

ARE YOU READY?

Football is back. And so is another season of FridayNightOhio.com coverage of varsity football. The new season kicks off with three games tonight:

• Perry Panthers will face backyard rivals Massillon Tigers at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium. Kick-off is 7:30 p.m.

Believe it or not, the 2015 high school football season will officially kickoff with a full slate of games beginning Aug. 28.

As is the case at the beginning of every sports season, expectations of conference titles and playoff appearances run rampant through the minds of players, coaches and fans alike for their respective teams.

Northwest has been searching for a new league to call home for four years. The Principals Athletic Conference is searching for members after seeing three depart in the last couple of weeks.
