Blitz Week 10
Playoff picture starting to clarify
Plymouth hosted undefeated Manteo for the Four Rivers Conference title.
The Redskins scored on their first drive of the night but that would be all their offense could muster against the Vikings defense.
Plymouth scored 36 first half points to all but end the game at the half.
Both teams would trade possessions and turnovers in the third quarter before Plymouth put the nail in the coffin with a long touchdown run to make it 44-8.
The Vikings win the Four Rivers Conference and are assured to host one playoff game.
Riverside 31 Southside 28
Long time Seahawk coach DeWayne Kellum was honored before the game in what would be his last home game at the helm of Southside.
His Seahawks fell behind early as Riverside was getting the yards in big chunks thanks to a powerful offensive line and backs that were hard to tackle.
Southside would fight back and try to win one for Kellum but in the end they would come up just a bit short as Riverside takes it 31-28.
