Troy Wyche and Asania Aderhold, who also passed for 216 yards, rushed for short touchdowns for the Raiders, who improved to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in sub-region 4B-AAAA.
With the win, Riverdale bounced back from last week’s 35-14 setback to Griffin and recorded its second shutout of the season.
Thanks to short catches and long runs by Kamhad Magwood and Rashad Canty, the Raiders were able to overcome a slow start by the offense. Magwood caught five passes for 109 yards and Canty had three receptions for 78 yards.
Deon Jones also had an interception for the Raiders’ defense, which allowed just two first downs and none in the second half.
