Riverton blocked a punt in the second quarter and ran it back for the first score of the game. Later, Riverton intercepted a pass and ran it back for a touchdown. Riverton scored two more times on long plays, and twice again as the game continued.
The Jays scored two touchdowns in the second half on short runs by Kobe Wheaton after moving the ball down field on a combination of passing and run plays.
Though this brings the Jays record to 0-3, the team is showing improvement. The Jays made some great hits on the Hawks and continued to work hard throughout the game.
Up next for the Jays is Midland, another 0-3 team. This will be PORTA’s homecoming game, and should provide an opportunity for PORTA to continue to improve and come away with a victory.
