Prince William Monarchs use big plays to defeat Northern Neck Rivermen

altThe long-awaited home debut of Northern Neck Rivermen (0-2) at Monroe Park in Colonial Beach is now history. The defending Regional American Football League Prince William Monarchs (2-0) defeated the Rivermen 19-2. The Woodbridge-based, semi-pro team used three big plays and a stingy defense to overpower their Mid-Atlantic conference rivals.
While the Monarchs yielded one turnover, courtesy of a Wyndell Lewis interception, the Rivermen fell prey to seven turnovers (five fumbles, two interceptions).

The game remained scoreless until the final 41 seconds of the first half, when Monarch back-up quarterback Shawn Penn connected with Nate Bennett for a 27-yard touchdown.
Later in the third quarter, the Rivermen defense stopped two potential Monarch scoring drives with an interception and tackle on Penn deep inside the Monarch four-yard-line — flipping the rival quarterback sideways.
After an interception by linebacker Jamar Atkinson, the Monarch setup shop on the Rivermen 35-yard-line. Using a no-huddle offense, the Monarchs used four plays before connecting on screen pass to Raymond Gee for a 19-yard touchdown. After a botched two-point conversion, the Monarchs led 13-0.
Later in the fourth quarter, Monarchs safety Greg Washington returned a 45-yard interception for his team’s final touchdown.
With less than a minute left in the game, the Rivermen avoided a shutout after the Monarch’s center hiked the ball over the punter’s head into the end-zone for a safety.
Fan support for the Rivermen was present throughout most game, as the stands were visibly packed on the Rivermen side of the field. With the start of high school football less than two weeks away, Rivermen fan support will become a familiar sighting as the season unfolds. The Rivermen will host the Virginia Vipers at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, at Monroe Park.
The Monarchs will be on the road again, as they travel to play the Virginia Thunder.
