RIVERVIEW — Visiting East Bay scored the first 19 points and the defense took care of the rest, cruising to a 33-14 victory Friday against Riverview.
"Our defense has carried us all year long," East Bay coach Frank LaRosa said. "Our offense has been up and down, and hot and cold at times, but the defense has done a heck of a job."
East Bay recovered a pair of fumbles, got the ball back on downs twice, picked off a pass and recorded three sacks to help break a three-game losing streak. The Indians moved to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in Class 7A, District 8.
Indians quarterback Chris Carpentier had touchdown runs of 4 and 2 yards while running back Chris Greene ran for a game-high 169 yards on just nine carries, scoring on runs of 25 and 54 yards.
"Chris doesn't have an off switch," LaRosa said. "He goes hard every drill and every snap."
Riverview (2-3) quarterback Chase Freeman scored both of the Sharks' touchdowns on a pair of 1-yard runs.
