More details than I would normally post from my game notes but I kept thinking that Riverheads played a near perfect first half and the credit goes to Coach Castro and his squad for executing the game plan so well.


37-17 advantage in plays for the Gladiators and 2 to 1 in time . Michael Johnson was the Bison that kept his squad in the game while Coach Maxwell searched for answers. Johnson had two big plays in the first half...

__________________________________________


Johnson gathered in a pass that had bounced off the shoulder pad of its attended receiver and by the time that Riverheads could bring the speedy Senior down he had returned the interception 40+ yards.. RHS was driving for a second TD that would of given the visitors a 14-0 lead but MJ gave the Bison a 1ST & 10 at the RHS 26 yard line.

__________________________________


Pickle Nuckols carried it 5 straight times to cover the 26 yards and instead of 14-0 it was knotted at 7-7... Thunder and Lightning at their best... Johnson returned the kickoff following the RHS early TD out to near midfield (33 yards). They should create a separate set of stats for the Amazing Mr. Johnson.

___________________________________


Maxwell and his defense took over the game coming out of the locker room. Did I mention that Johnson spearheads the Bison "D"?. Riverheads first 3 possessions for the second half netted 13 plays and 19 yards. While the Riverheads played a near perfect offensive first 24 minutes, the Bison defense played even better in the second half.

____________________________________


Nuckols punched the ball into the end zone for the 3RD time with 6:05 remaining in the game but Riverheads still had time to answer. Montana Puffenbarger returned the kick off 21 yards to give RHS a 1ST & 10 from their own 36. But after 3 more plays the Gladiators were facing a 4TH & 1 and still in search of their second first down of the half.

_____________________________________


Cory Sandridge gave the large RHS gathering hope when the Junior broke through the line and scampered 21 yards. A new set of downs at the Bison 34 yard line and still 4 minutes on the clock. Gap's defense tightened up once again and RHS faced another 4TH down but this time it was 4TH & 3. The Gladiators had run 20 other second half plays besides the Sandridge run had but 35 yards to show for it so Castro knew he needed a big play.

_____________________________________


Cameron Brown rolled out and looked for Joseph Cash but the ball fell to the ground and the Gap defense headed back to the sideline. The clock read 2:28 and Riverheads had all 3 time outs remaining. I figured Gap needed 3 first downs to finish off the contest and that meant it was Pickle time...

______________________________________


1 & 10 (27) Pickle 18 yards

1 & 10 (45) Pickle 2 yards

2 & 8 (47) Logan Huff 4 yards

3 & 4 (49^) Pickle 6 yards

1 & 10 (43) Pickle 6 yards

2 & 4 (37) Pickle 5 yards

1 & 10 (32) Ryan Sheridan takes a knee... Game Over ... Gap 9-0

Four things to take from the Game-


1. Riverheads played a near perfect game in the first half

2. Zero personal fouls committed by either side, just a minimum of 5 yard flags

3. Pickle didn't have his biggest #'s game but he netted 3 TD's and when he had to run out the clock he protected the ball (5/37 yards)...

4. Michael Johnson is Scary Good - Perfect for a game that proved to be a Halloween Treat !
