The Bear Necessities

With a record of three wins and four losses and new records being achieved, the Riverbend football team has been doing very well this season. Although tainted with a few losses, the team has been relatively successful in most games, including a history making win against Massaponax. Not only has the team been doing well, but school spirit has also grown.
Junior Logan Treiber, linebacker, said, “Although our record is worse than last years, we could turn this season around with teamwork and hard work.” On Friday October 20th, our team played Mountain View for our homecoming game. We lost with a score of 24-21. Riverbend was losing with thirty seconds left on the clock, and our team tied the score 21-21. Then, with nine seconds left, lost by a field goal scored by Mountain View. Junior Ben Skinner, safety, said “Our team played well in the second half of the game and tried to pull through with a win.”
This season, the team has won against Ponax, Chancellor, and James River. Riverbend still has to face North Stafford and Brooke Point later this season. Junior and corner, Kyle Flynn said, “Our team has developed and grown over the past year and works hard during every practice and game to improve for the next game.” Treiber said the team is getting better together, and they look forward to the rest of the season. The team has many lead role players, such as Jordan Rice.
