Riverdale Academy’s young football season is tied at one win and one loss. The Rebels fell to the Saints from Prentiss Christian School in Prentiss, Mississippi on Friday night.
The match was scoreless for much of the first half. Both teams had opportunities but did not score early. Prentiss scored near the end of the first half and kicked a one point after for seven points. Just a short time later the Rebels put the ball in the end zone. They converted for two points.
At halftime Riverdale lead 8 to 7. In the second half the Rebels mounted several drives but were not able to score again. Meanwhile, the Prentiss Eagles scored three times and added on one two-point conversion.
Final score was Prentiss 27 and Riverdale 8. That made Riverdale’s season record 1 and 1. Riverdale has a bye this week. They have a long trip ahead for Friday September 7th when they travel to Wilkinson County Christian Academy at Woodville, Mississippi. That is just across the Louisiana line, north of Baton Rouge. Maps says it is a three-and-a-half hour drive.
