East Ridge football: Mounds View blanks Raptors 17-0


The Raptors ran into a wall Friday night.

Coming off a convincing Week 2 home win over Forest Lake, East Ridge had no answers for a Mounds View defense that smothered its way to a 17-0 win at the Raptor's Nest.

"That's probably the best defensively coached team around," East Ridge coach Mike Pendino said after the game.

The Mustangs' defense blanketed a Raptors rushing attack that couldn't find a rhythm and stifled nearly any semblance of a passing game.
