NEW PORT RICHEY- Nothing better when it comes down to Pasco County district rivalry between River Ridge and Zephyrhills. 

​The rivalry between the two schools has brought out  the best out of the programs. Heck, the winner of the matchup between the Bulldogs and Royal Knights has decided who will win a district championship the last four years and this 2019 edition will play the same role as in years past.

Roussos reached the 200-yard plateau for the first time in his career and set a career-high with 4 TDs - with 3 coming in the first half. His performance gave River Ridge it's 8th straight victory over Wesley Chapel. And setups next Friday's tilt with district rival Zephyrhills in a Winner-Take-All match-up for the 5A-11 title.

NEW PORT RICHEY- On Monday afternoon, Gulf athletic director Bruno Buonsanto announced in a single tweet on Twitter that the Buccaneers would be forfeiting their final three games against Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills and Cypress Creek. 

"Gulf High is canceling the remainder of our football season due to injuries the past few weeks. Our roster numbers are not sufficient enough to safely field a team. This was hard decision but the safety of our kids always comes 1st," Buonsanto said in the tweet Monday afternoon.
