Devildogs Win Opener on the Road

Football vs Riverside

The Devildogs traveled to Riverside to open their season. This is the third year to play Riverside in their opening game. The past two years the Devildogs played well but lost close games to the Warriors. This year the Devildogs scored in the first quarter with a 35 yard pass to Jake Hall to take a 7-0 lead. The Warriors scored in the second quarter to take an 8-7 lead but the Devildogs regained the lead with Derrick Fields catching a 16 yard TD pass and then catching a pass for the 2 point conversion to give the Devildogs a 15-8 lead with a little over 8 minutes left in the half.

The Devildogs recovered another Riverside fumble and put together a drive with Deonte Byrd scoring from the 2 yard line with 2:44 left in the half to stretch the Devildog lead to 22-8. Riverside scored first in the third quarter with a 25 yard pass to cut the lead to 22-14. The Devidogs answered in the final quarter with a TD run of 22 yards by Deonte Byrd and a 35 yard TD run by Wilson Hendricks to give the Devildogs the convincing 35-14 win. This is their first opening game win since 2015.
