KBVO Game of the Week: Cedar Ridge takes on Vandegrift in district play

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Neither Vandegrift nor Cedar Ridge have lost in the last three weeks, but unfortunately for one of them, that will change Thursday at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex.

Cedar Ridge was 1-3 in four games, but the Raiders have rattled off three straight wins against Westwood, Stony Point and most recently Manor. However, the Raiders have a tall task ahead of them in the Vandegrift Vipers. The Vipers, currently undefeated in district play, haven’t lost since the season opener against Dripping Springs and are coming off a 30-22 victory over Round Rock.

Cedar Ridge scored on offense, defense and special teams against the Mustangs in the shootout win. The Raiders had a field goal, scored on a 5-yard run, a fumble recovery and an interception, all in the second quarter, to earn their third straight win.
