Riverview 28, East Bay 20

EAST BAY — Jamal Stewart's fumble return looked to be icing on the cake but it turned out to be the difference as Riverview held off a furious East Bay comeback.

Leading 12-7 at halftime, Terrance Carter burst up the middle for 7 yards to put the Sharks ahead 20-7. On East Bay's next possession, Carter took a fumble 49 yards to put Riverview (2-4) up 28-7.

But DJ Richmond's 7-yard score cut it to 28-14 and the Indians (3-4) recovered the ensuing onside kick. Aaron Mills then hit Junior Nemorin for 13 yards on fourth-and-8 and followed that with a 36-yard pass to Lamarque Caldwell in the fourth to make it 28-20.

East Bay again recovered an onside kick but turned the ball over on downs. The Indians got one more chance, but Jacob Farmer and Eric Disla sacked Mills as time expired.
