A pair of Hunter Hogan touchdowns and a Hogan field goal proved to be enough as Ravenna beat North Muskegon 17-6 in a WMC matchup on Friday night.
Hogan caught a 36-yard first half touchdown pass from Kyle Beebe to give the Bulldogs a one-point halftime lead, added a 4-yard second half touchdown run and then kicked a 36-yard field goal in the win.
After starter James Young was injured, North Muskegon backup quarterback Denny Belmonte had to lead his team.
Belmonte ran for a first half score but that was all the Norsemen would get as Belmonte finished 12-of-21 passing for 73 yards.
North Muskegon outgained Ravenna 193 to 192 but the Bulldogs led in the rushing category with 118 yards on the ground, mainly behind Clay Schullo’s 100 yards on 14 attempts.
Matt Colbert would lead the Norseman with eight receptions for 57 yards and an interception.
Early in the 4th quarter, Ravenna would block North Muskegon’s punt to setup Hogan’s field goal for the final score.
Then a sack on 4th and 20 by the Bulldogs’ Dayton Thomas would close out the game.
Kyle Beebe was 7-of-10 for 74 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Zeke Thomas led the Ravenna defense with 8 tackles and two for a loss.
