Riverdale Rebels take on Porter’s Chapel Eagles

By: Chloe Spradley

Last Friday the Rebels traveled to Mississippi to take on Porter’s Chapel. Both teams were 3-0 leading up to the action-packed night, which ended in Porter’s Chapel taking the victory in double over-time. Even though it wasn’t the ending they wanted, our boys put up a great fight!

Kyle Guillory had 10 carries for 57 rushing yards including 1 touchdown, 2 catches for 71 receiving yards
and 1 touchdown, and 1 kick return for 9 yards. Kaidyn Williams also had a great night with 3 carries for
33 rushing yards, 4 catches for 46 receiving yards, and a 38-yard punt. Ashton Almond also had carries
for rushing yards. But taking home Offense MVP and the game ball was quarterback Ryder Huddleston!
Huddleston had 119 passing yards including 1 touchdown and 13 carries for 69 rushing yards with 1
fumble and a touchdown. Huddleston was also there on defense. Both he and Landen Barrett had 2 solo
tackles and 5 assists each, Huddleston with 1 forced fumble and Barrett with a fumble recovery.
Williams, Guillory, and Gates along with John Windham, Hayden Hillman, Tanner Carlisle, and Zane
Givens also made defensive stops for the Rebels that night. However, it was Almond who walked away
with Defensive MVP with 4 solo tackles and 10 assists.

Porter’s Chapel came into the game thinking it would be an easy win for them, and our Rebels showed
them that we should never be underestimated! As always, they played with heart and should always
walk away with their heads held high.
