No. Neck Rivermen crush Virginia Steelers

The Northern Neck Rivermen, part of the Mason Dixon Football League (MDFL), dominated the Virginia Steelers this past Saturday night with a 68-6 victory. In the first quarter, the Rivermen started the scoring off with a 103- yard kickoff return from wide receiver Mike Howard. The Rivermen tried to go for the two-point conversion but just came up short, making the score 6-0. But that didn’t stop the Rivermen; quarterback Walt Covington found wide receiver Jermaine Weldon for a 55-yard touchdown, making the score 12-0.  The team attempted another two-point conversion but were unsuccessful once again.


Covington found running back Adeola Ogunwenmo for a six-yard touchdown to make the score 18-0. Covington made another attempt for the two-point conversion and this time was successful to make the score 20-0. Now for the last play for the first quarter, Covington found Tim Short for a 40-yard pass for another Rivermen touchdown. This time kicker Barrett Hollingsworth was called in to make the extra point and was successful, making the score 27-0, to end the first quarter.

The second quarter was not as eventful as the first, but the Rivermen still made it count. There were no touchdowns for either team, only a field goal. Barrett Hollingsworth made a 21-yard field goal attempt which made the score 30-0 at the half.

The third quarter comes, and the Rivermen made sure that the second half was just as dominating as the first. Covington found Tim Short once again, but this time for a 69- yard touchdown making the score 36-0. The extra point was no good this time.

After a couple of plays, the Rivermen got the ball back once again and made it count with a 17-yard pass from Covington to Mike Howard, raising the score to 42-0. The extra point was no good.

The Steelers scored a touchdown on a six-yard rush to make the score 42-6. Their extra point was no good, as well. The Rivermen got the ball back and made it known that they did, with a 16-yard pass to wide receiver David Jackson to make the score 48-6. The two-point conversion was not successful. But that did not deter the Rivermen as they came back with another touchdown.

Running back Chris Wilson made a six-yard touchdown making the score 54-6. Hollingsworth was called up, making the extra point and bumped up the score 55-6. For the last play of the third quarter, Covington found wide receiver Bj Reynolds for a 47-yard touchdown which made the score 61-6.

The fourth quarter  was all Rivermen. The Steelers started out with the ball, but were intercepted by Linebacker Rj Jones for a 40-yard touchdown. With the score 67-6, Hollingsworth was called in for the last time of the night for the extra point, and he made the final score of the game 68-6.  

The Rivermen had an amazing last home game; next week they travel for a rematch with Arbutus Big Red. In the meantime, the first home game for the King George varsity football team is this Friday night against Riverbend. Game starts at 7 p.m., and everyone is encouraged to come out and support the Foxes.
