RESERVE – Riverside Academy’s second district game of the season ended in a blowout, if not a shut out, as the Rebels topped Redeemer-Seaton 45- 6.

Donald Allen, quarterback for Redeemer-Seton, kept the ball for a short trot into the end zone with 2:09 left in the game. These six points gave theRams their only score of the night.

It was all Rebels the rest of the game, dominating from the first drive.

The Rebs’ first TD came half-way through the first quarter with running back Britt Waguespack running 35 yards for the score. With the kick byKaleb Mayes made the score was 7-0.

The Rams were plagued by penalties throughout the evening. A personalfoul with four minutes left in the first quarter set up Riverside on the 14- yard line, and Brandon Delaneuville trotted in. The first quarter ended 14 -0 Riverside.

On fourth-and-9 Allen’s pass was intercepted by Joel Levin, who returned the ball 52 yards. Six plays later, on a drive led by quarterback MichaelSchoen who took over for Damien Melancon, Waguespack again carried 14 yards for the score. Following the sure kick from Mayes’ foot, it was a 21-0 game.

Following a kick-off return to the 30-yard line, Redeemer’s Allen was sacked by Mike Mohon (who seemed to be everywhere on the field) and slightly injured on the play. Allen was able to walk off on his own,however, and was back in the action two plays later only to be sacked again by defensive lineman Blake Duhe. A facemask call against Riversideled to a 15-yard gain by Redeemer. It was no help, however. Allen waschased and forced to throw long, and the pass was intercepted by Bradley Hodges and returned to the 44-yard line.

Two plays later, Waguespack trotted another 41 yards for yet another Riverside score. With the kick, it was Rebels 28-0 with 3:12 left in thefirst half.

The Rebels still were not finished. After forcing Redeemer to a four downsand out series, Bradley Hodges returned the punt and ran back 58 yards for a Riverside touchdown. With 50- seconds to go in the half, Riverside wasup 35 to zip.

As the second half began Riverside running back Delaneuville seemed to be the go-to guy, taking the ball three times running. On his third carryDelaneuville was stopped and shaken up on the play. He left on his ownsteam, however, and was back in the game a few plays later.

After the time out, a run by Jeff Roccaforte set up yet another 20-yard run by Waguespack for yet another score, making it 42-0 with more than half of the third quarter remaining to be played.

Riverside’s final score came in the third quarter on a 26-yard field goal by Mayes. The kick was set up after Redeemer punter Frank Urriola’s kick wasblocked. The ball was recovered by Riverside’s Sean Delaneuville on theRedeemer-Seton 12-yard line.

Allen’s game of short passes managed to move them down the position the Rams’ only score of the night. A first attempt at a two-point conversionwas good but called back by a Ram holding penalty. This forced a secondattempt from 14 yards out. This time the try was no good and leftRedeemer with their one six-point score.

Riverside ran short running plays designed to eat up the clock, ending the game 5-0 on the season 2-0 in district play.
