Northern Neck Rivermen shutout New Jersey Broncos

Three times is a charm for the Northern Neck Rivermen. On Saturday evening, after splitting victories during the regular season, the Rivermen shutout the New Jersey Broncos, 17-0 at Monroe Park, in Colonial Beach.
The victory was anything but pretty, but when it comes down to it, a win is a win — and the Rivermen will advance into the championship round against defending MDFL champion, Arbutus Big Red, on Saturday, Oct. 16, at Arbutus Middle School, in Arbutus, Md. The winner of the MDFL North Championship will play the winner of the MDFL South champions.
Hard hitting, personal fouls, turnovers and a war of words clearly defined the game from start to finish. However the Rivermen overcame seven turnovers to foil the hopes of the Broncos with their brand of special teams, and an interception that led to a touchdown. On defense, the Rivermen were solid, as they yielded only 111 yards of total offense that included three sacks and two interceptions. The buildup to a long rivalry between the two teams has already been set in stone.
On the opening kick-off, Aaron Lewis, busted through the seams of the Broncos defense for a 95-yard touchdown. After the dusk settled for the remaining part of the first and second quarter, the game became a defensive stalemate, with the Rivermen leading 7-0. Ball control and time of possession were critical factors in the Rivermen’s ability to stifle the Broncos offensive game plan.
On the second possession of the fourth quarter, the Rivermen drove 71 yards deep into Bronco territory, where Trey Hamlet extended the Rivermen lead to 10-0 with a 26-yard field goal. On the ensuing Bronco possession, the Rivermen sealed the victory when Gary Nelson picked off a Bronco pass for 43-yard touchdown.
