Friday night the Riverdale Rebels traveled to Rolling Fork, Mississippi to do battle with the Sharkey-Issaquena Academy Confederates. It was the first round of the playoffs and the Rebels were up for the game.
It was a chilly night and the loyal Riverdale fans who made the trip bundled up against the cold. It was worth the trip and the Rebels delivered. Final score was 32 to 28 Rebels.
The Rebels will travel to Steens, MS next Friday. Round two of the playoffs pits the Rebels against Columbia Christian Academy.
