Riverfield Raiders stop Porters Chapel, 46-14

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.
