THREE OAKS — The Red Arrow Raiders blanked the Twin City Sharks 48-0 on Oct. 8 in the 2022 River Valley Homecoming contest.
RVHS senior Eli Thomas scored several times in the first half (seven- and nine-yard sprints to the end zone in the first quarter and a 25-yard pick-six just before the break to make it a 36-0 ballgame).
Thomas said it was good to get the win in his last game on the home field at River Valley.
Other touchdowns were scored on a fumble recovery in the end zone; an 11-yard pass from Ethan Lijewski to Ryder Wolnik; and one- and three-yard TD plunges by Wolnik.
“We played great defense – never allowed a point,” Wolnik noted.
Head coach Matt Johnson said it was probably the best overall defensive game the team has played this season.
“Our goal is to try and win out for the rest of the season,” he said.
The Red Arrow Raiders (4-3) will play the New Buffalo Homecoming game to cap of a week of festivities set for Oct. 17-21.
