Led by quarterback Brian Garcia, Ravenwood ran out to a big early lead and held on to beat Father Ryan, 35-7, avenging last year’s upset win by the Fighting Irish.
Garcia tossed four touchdown passes, and Tony Rice scored twice, helping the Ravenwood get back on a winning track after last week’s loss to Brentwood spoiled an undefeated season.
It didn’t take Ravenwood long to get going.
Garcia hit Andrew Mason with a touchdown pass on the Raptors’ first play from scrimmage. He then connected with Rice on another, as Ravenwood led 14-0 at the end of a quarter.
After Father Ryan scored its only points. Rice added a 5-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, then, Garcia threw another long touchdown pass, this one, to Evan Coleman.
Jordan Smith added an insurance score in the second half with a touchdown run off a fake punt.
Ravenwood (5-1) hosts Dickson County next week.
