The Wolfpack (2-1) limited Foothill quarterback Destin Penn to just 17 yards on two completions and 13 rushing yards.

Foothill's Brandon Fanning ran 25 times for 135 yards, but the Trojans were unable to capitalize, fumbling three times and turning it over on downs twice inside the Wolf Pack 20-yard line.

The Wolf Pack built the halftime lead behind a 16-point second quarter that included two Cotton-Moya touchdown passes and never let up.

After the Trojans (0-2) put up their first points of the game near the end of the third quarter, Ridgeview scored the game's final 21 points.
