Prep football preview: Ridgefield vs. Kalama
When, where: 7 p.m. Friday; Chinook Stadium, Kalama HS, Kalama
Last week: Ridgefield beat Castle Rock 23-10; Kalama beat Woodland 20-14.
Last meeting: Ridgefield won 35-14 in 2014.
Players to watch: Ridgefield QB Cade Morrill is trying to make the conversion from tight end to quarterback. That conversion is key for the Spudders. Kalama QB Isaac Truesdell was 13 for 17 for 169 yards and 3 TDs last week.
Game notes: Ridgefield LB Kevin Miser had a team-high eight tackles and returned a fumble for a TD in his first varsity start … The Spudders defense held Castle Rock to 182 yards, forced three fumbles and recorded a safety … RB Jalen Williams led the Spudders with 75 yards rushing. … Morrill passed for 110 yards, but 76 came on one play. … The Chinooks held a potent Woodland offense to 14 points, including shutting out the Beavers with a bend-but-not-break defensive effort in the second half. … Jacob Herz had two TD receptions.
The Prep Proletariat says: Kalama stopped a team that made the state playoffs and has one of the top QBs in the state last week. This week, the Chinooks get a team that went 5-4 last year with a former tight end at QB. KALAMA 19, RIDGEFIELD 13.”
