In MDFL (Mason Dixon Football League) news, the Northern Neck Rivermen hosted Arbutus Big Red this past Saturday night at King George High school field.
With an outstanding game the Rivermen pulled a 27-7 victory over Big Red. It all started with the first quarter when the Rivermen put the first score of the game on the board with an amazing 64 yard pass from the quarterback Walt Covington to Jermaine Weldon. Then Barrett Hollingsworth was called in for the extra point which made the score 7-0.
During the second quarter Big Red comes back with a run touchdown and a good kick for the extra point to make the score equal, but the Rivermen were not going to let that stand. Quarterback Walt Covington made another amazing 64 yard pass to Jermaine Weldon for another touchdown right before half time, making the score 13-7. The extra point was no good.
When the second half came around the Rivermen wanted to make sure that this game was theirs. The third quarter started off with Mike Howard’s 34 yard punt return for a touchdown, making the score 19-7. The Rivermen went for the two-point conversion and Walt Covington found Jermaine Weldon once again to get the score bumped up to 21-7. But the third quarter is not over yet; Derrick Manning helped push the score over the top with a 75 yard punt return for a touchdown, and the extra point was good.
In the fourth quarter it was all defense; they made sure Big Red couldn’t have a chance to come back, because the Rivermen already declared that game was theirs.
The Rivermen finished the game 27-7 in “The Game of the Week” style making the Rivermen leaders of the North Division. Next week they are still home at the King George High School field where they will be taking on the Virginia Hornets; everyone is encouraged to come out and support their undefeated Northern Neck Rivermen.
