Riverfield Raiders post second win of the season

The Riverfield Academy Raiders posted their second win of the season this past Friday night as they defeated the Hillcrest Cougars by a score of 41-0.

The win gives the Raiders a 2-0 district standing and brings them to 2-2 overall. 

From the onset of the contest, it became pretty obvious that the Raiders were the strongest of the two teams. Offensively, the Raiders scored two first quarter touchdowns and four in the second quarter. Defensively, the Raiders shut down all scoring attempts by the Cougars. The Raiders went into half time with a very solid lead of 39-0.

Raiders fall to Mustangs 9-6 during overtime play

The Riverfield Academy Raiders were at home this past Friday night where they hosted the River Oaks Mustangs.

It is usually an exciting and intense game when Riverfield and River Oaks match up and Friday night’s game was no different. In a low scoring contest, the Raiders came up short, losing by a score of 9-6 in overtime.

River Oaks took the opening kick off and in four plays took the ball 72 yards to score their only touchdown of the night. They missed the PAT, so with just a little over two minutes gone off the clock, the Mustangs had an early lead of 6-0.

Coming off a hard loss in their season opener, the Riverfield Academy Raiders took to the road once again this past Friday night to take on the Porters Chapel Eagles in Vicksburg, Miss.

The Raiders took charge of the contest early and came up with their first win of the season which was also a district game.

The Raider offense looked sharp and seemed to get stronger as the night progressed. The Raider defensive unit did its job as well, forcing six Eagle turnovers, including one second quarter Pick Six by Ty Skeldon.
