Not even the 2010 Cedar Ridge football team, which was one win away from playing in the 2-AA State Championship, started 3-0.
But the 2016 Red Wolves have. And they’ve done it by a combined score of 162-12.
In a special Labor Day game, the Red Wolves smashed East Chapel Hlll 47-6 at Red Wolves Stadium for the first 3-0 start in school history. London Saunders rushed for 146 yards and four touchdowns. It was his first career 100-yard rushing game.
Senior Seth Baldwin added 82 rushing yards and a touchdown. Shemar Miles, HillsboroughSports.com’s 1st Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week, added 80 yards rushing.
Cedar Ridge only punted once in the victory. Senior kicker Trenton Gill added a 39-yard field goal. Seven of his eight kickoff wound up going for touch backs.
Cedar Ridge rushed for 356 yards.
The Red Wolves have already defeated Jordan-Matthews 55-6 after opening the season with a 60-0 victory over Carrboro.
On Friday, Cedar Ridge hosts Riverside at 7:00 looking for its first-ever 4-0 start.
