Despite yet another slow start for Nederland, the Panthers were able to turn things around and walk away from the gridiron with their second win in three weeks, defeating Pikes Peak Christian 34-14 on the road.

Though they gave up a touchdown on a short field in the first quarter and a kick return in the second, Ned was able to hit the locker room at halftime with a 14-14 tie thanks to the play of quarterback Mike Wood. The junior threw a TD to Noah Ridnell for the first NHS score and then later took off on a long scramble with seconds remaining before intermission.

Nederland then began to pull away in the second half with rushing scores from Wood and Ridnell and another TD when the duo connected through the air. Ridnell compiled 147 yards on the ground on just six carries, while Wood ran for 178 yards and passed for another 160.

“Our guys really responded in second half,” Nederland coach Aaron Jones said. “Wood was running strong and we ran Ridnell on a couple counters.”

The two also compiled double-digit tackles on defense to allow the Panthers to pull even at 2-2 on the season.
