Riverdale Football had a home game this past Friday at Marson Stadium. Riverdale had a game against the Rebul Raiders from Learned Mississippi.
Riverdale also had a new coaching change with Spencer Roland and Eric Talley as the new head coaches. They assumed their duties this past week. Despite Riverdale only having 4 days with their new coaches they seemed to sync perfectly on the field.
The new staff changed some positions around, playing Jackson Riggs at Tight End. He didn’t disappoint while catching two touchdowns, one in the first quarter one in the third.
Adam Bryant and Justin Oliver both made it into the end zone a couple of times with some fantastic runs themselves.
Riverdale came ahead in the game 54-27 over the Raiders and looked confident in doing so. Despite the shaky start to the season this new Riverdale team looks dominant and they are here to stay.
On Friday night the Rebels are going to travel to Farmerville for a battle against the Union Christian Academy Lions. The game will be carried live by Journal Sports on the RedRiverParishJournal.com website and on text message alerts just before kickoff. The text will have a link to the game or just click the “Listen Rebels” button on the Journal menu bar.
