Spoto 35, Riverview 0

RIVERVIEW — Spoto (5-0) continued its pursuit of a perfect season, shutting out struggling Riverview.

On the Sharks' first possession, Spoto's Darius Ridgeway returned an interception 50 yards for a score.

In the second quarter, Spoto's special teams tackled Riverview's punter on the goal line, leading to Danny Taylor's 1-yard score.

After Spoto blocked a punt in the third quarter, Rodney Williams scored and later quarterback James Brown connected with leading rusher and receiver Charles Waits on a 65-yard touchdown for a comfortable lead.

"We're still a young team, and we didn't really play well, but we still won," Spoto coach Dale Caparaso said. "Our kids played great defense, and that's something that we take pride in and that's always on our minds. It's something that Spoto has really latched on to right now."
