Prep Football: Wonders shut out by Marvin Ridge

Staff report

WAXHAW — A.L. Brown’s football team suffered a rare shutout at Marvin Ridge on Friday.

The Wonders were blanked, 24-0.  It was the first time A.L. Brown hasn’t scored in a varsity football game since the middle of the 2013 season when Hough beat the Wonders, 13-0.

Before that loss to Hough, you have to go back nine more years to locate another shutout. A.L. Brown lost to Eastern Randolph, 28-0, in Week 3 of the 2004 season.

The Wonders (1-1) got knocked back quickly on Friday. Marvin Ridge back Caleb Woodley scored touchdowns on runs of 10, 1 and 12 yards for a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

Jason Stricker kicked a 44-yard field goal in the second quarter for the Mavericks (2-0), and that was all the scoring.

A.L. Brown’s defense played very well in the second half.

Linebacker Justin Holsclaw was in on 13 tackles, had a sack and forced a fumble.

Linebacker B.J. Foster had a sack.

The Wonders’ offense was hampered by an ankle injury that limited QB Jordan Medley.

A.L. Brown is home next Friday against Carson. Carson (2-0) will visit Memorial Stadium for the first time.
