Cane Ridge’s defense was dominant during Friday night’s homecoming contest against Region 6-5A foe Glencliff.

The Ravens won their third straight region game in blowout fashion, knocking off the Colts 45-0.

Glencliff (2-6, 0-5) was held to 19 yards of total offense.

“Cane Ridge was a lot faster than we thought,” Glencliff coach Brandon Easley said.

The Ravens (6-2, 3-2) wasted no time getting started, scoring on their first two drives (65 and 24 yards) to take a 14-0 lead. From there the Ravens defense set the pace.

Ravens quarterback D.J. Thorpe was 10-of-16 for 109 yards and two touchdowns.

“We all put in the effort,” Thorpe said. “We all put in the work. Everyone executed 100 percent for us to get this win.”

Cane Ridge has won four of its past five games after falling to region foes Hendersonville and Beech.

Emari Barton rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown for Cane Ridge while Christian Lancaster scored twice — one on the ground and one through the air.

“We were able to play a lot of guys. We executed well defensively and made progress on a lot of things,” Cane Ridge coach Eddie Woods said.
