HAINES CITY | The Ridge Community Bolts stretched their advantage over rival Haines City (1-5) Friday with a 35-13 victory over the Hornets in front of 300 wet fans at Joe Stangry Stadium.
The Bolts lead the series 5-3 between the two schools that are less than four miles apart.
Bolts' quarterback Jourdan Osinskie threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more to lead Ridge (5-1. 1-0) to its first Class 7A, District 5 victory.
Bolt Dominic Dennard also ran for one touchdown against a depleted Haines City squad (1-5, 0-2) that's down to 27 players.
"Just one play," Haines City coach Pete Barber said. "And if we held them on fourth down ..."
With 6:13 remaining in the third quarter and Ridge leading 21-6, Osinskie fumbled, giving the ball to Haines City on the Ridge 16-yard line. The Hornets closed the gap to 21-13 on a 2-yard run by Dacorius Law.
Bolt Kareem Smith returned the kickoff 23 yards, putting the ball on the Haines City 49-yard line.
Nine plays later, Osinskie ran around the Haines City defensive end for a 1-yard score and a 28-13 Bolt advantage.
On third-and-11, Hornets quarterback Ryan Pynes threw a pass down the center of the field that was dropped by a receiver who had run a half-step past the Bolts' defense.
Haines City punted and Ridge scored on the next drive. The Hornets managed to reach the Ridge 22-yard line with just over six minutes left in the game.
However, Pynes was picked off for the second time by Mike Hall.
Bolts running back Trayvon Howard rushed for 116 yards on 17 carries to lead Ridge. Haines City's Dacorius Law rushed for 86 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown.
It was the third week in a row that an opponent scored 35 points against the Hornets, who have lost five games in a row.
Next week, Haines City travels to rival Lake Wales. Ridge Community travels to Lake Gibson.
