The 2019 High School football season is underway. Riverdale Academy opened the season on the road. They traveled to Bastrop to play the Prairie View Spartains.
The Rebels put 38 points on the board, however that was not quite enough. Final score was Prairie View 50 and Riverdale 38. Both squads had great aggressive offenses, and both defenses left something to work on in the future.
This week Riverdale is again on the road. They travel to far northeast Louisiana to play the Briarfield Colonels at Lake Providence. Kickoff will be at 7:00.

Here is a suggestion for a great before or after game meal. Try Zips Cajun Restaurant at 218 N. Hood Street in Lake Providence. I discovered the place during the basketball tournament last year. I was not disappointed in the boiled shrimp, gumbo or homemade pie. A tip: Go Hungry!
