Not much went right for the OHS football team on Friday night. Entering the game the Riders had a 2-0 record in the PAC after defeating Tuslaw and CVCA. Unfortunately the Indian Valley Braves really stepped up and controlled the line of scrimmage.
The Riders just could not get either the running or passing games going due to the Braves applying constant pressure. With all of that being said the game was still close as Indian Valley only had an 8 point lead for much of the 3rd and 4th quarter until scoring 2 touchdowns in the 4th quarter.
Statistics for the game:
First Downs: IV 14, Orr 8
Rushing: IV 35 rushes for 184 yards, Orr 32 rushes for 35 yards
Passing: IV 9 for 18- 134 yards, Orr 11-28 for 84 yards
Next Friday the Riders will travel to Manchester to play the Panthers. An interesting note about this game is that the Manchester coach (Jim France) will be going for the all time state record for most wins as a high school football coach. Mr. France has coached for over 4 decades at Manchester.
