Ridgwayâ€™s quartet of seniors won 4-0 over Curwensville Saturday morning at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
The seniors are Ryan McClelland, Tad Pierce, Kyle Kinkead and Greg Paige.
â€śThe seniors, I couldnâ€™t be prouder of them,â€ť Ridgway coach John Ogden said. â€śRyan, he just came on this year and he picked it up right away. Itâ€™s been a blast and when you talk about leaders, those are the kind of leaders you want on your team. Itâ€™s nice to see them finish with a better season than theyâ€™ve been accustomed to. Itâ€™s a good group of kids.â€ť
Pierce had a hat trick against the Golden Tide, scoring in the first five minutes of the game.
â€śHe leads us in goals and I think heâ€™s had the most goals for Ridgway for a few years,â€ť Ogden said. â€śThe change from defense to offense was good for him.â€ť
Ridgway led 2-0 at the half before Pierce added goal with just under 28 minutes left and just under six minutes left which made the Elker lead 4-0.
Paige broke through the defense just after the midway point of the first half and used a stepover move to beat the Curwensville goalkeeper for his first goal.
â€śIt was nice,â€ť Ogden said. â€śGreg had his first real goal of his career, so it was good.â€ť
Ogden said the Elkers bounced back strong after a 9-0 loss to Elk County Catholic on Thursday.
â€śIt was a nice comeback after the ECC loss too,â€ť Ogden said. â€śThey needed that.â€ť
Ridgway is slated to host Brockway at 4 p.m. today.
