Junior Varsity Game #1

Riverview High School - Riverview 1st 2nd 3rd 4th / Final
Riverview Lady Sharks 0 6 6 6
Alonso Ravens 7 27 34 34


Jayden and her Riverview Lady Sharks JV flag football teammates took to their home field today to take on the Alonso Ravens. Jay was told during the day that she probably wouldn't see the field much today because of how good Alonso is, and I think that got into her head a little bit. She found herself watching from the sidelines during the opening half, but after getting some coaching in the third quarter was finally inserted into the game for her first flag football action. Although she wasn't targeted on any of the plays while she was on the field, she looked comfortable during the game action.

I posted a recap of the similarities, differences, and scoring on the bottom of the schedule page. Hopefully that helps you (and me) understand the rules a little better.

On to my brief recap. Whoever told Jay that Alonso was good wasn't wrong. The two teams played a tight first quarter, though Riverview definitely struggled on offense. Their first drive ended in a punt, while two more ended with an interception during the open twelve minutes. Alonso was forced to punt on their opening drive as well, but they managed to drive down the field for a touchdown after intercepting the Sharks for the first time. A successful extra point attempt made the score 7-0 in favor of the Ravens. Alonso would maintain possession of the ball in the second quarter after their second interception off of a Sharks pass in the first quarter. They would once again convert a Riverview turnover into a touchdown , though they would miss the extra point try, making it a 13-0 game. The next Riverview possession would end in yet another interception, this one returned for another Alonso touchdown. A successful extra point attempt made it a 20-0 game. Riverview finally found some success on their next drive, though it didn't start well. A bad snap set the team in an early hole, and they missed on their next pass attempt. They hit on their third play of the drive, when a short pass led to a long touchdown run, giving them their first score of the season. They didn't have any luck on their extra point attempt, so the score was now 20-6. Alonso would answer right back on their next possession, on an almost identical score as the Riverview touchdown - a short pass and a long run following the completion. Unfortunately for the Sharks, the Ravens were successful on their extra point attempt, and the score was now 27-6. That would be the score heading into halftime.

Both teams were unable to score on their opening possession of the second half. Alonso had to punt, while Riverview turned the ball over on downs. Alonso scored their final touchdown of the game on their second possession of the half on a long touchdown pass. Their extra point attempt was successful, making it a 34-6 game. The rest of the game resulted in no further scoring. Jayden did get on the field following the final Alonso touchdown, though she wasn't targeted on any of the plays. It was good for her to get in the game and get a feel for the action despite the outcome of the game.

Better luck next time, girls!
