BLUE WAVES 20, WOLVERINES 15
The Riverhead Blue Waves’ defense took the philosophy of “bend but don’t break” to extremes in Saturday’s 20-15 win over the Newfield Wolverines in Selden.
In the first half of the Suffolk County Division II game, Newfield was stopped on Riverhead’s 6-yard line after going for it on fourth down with 2 yards to go on. The Wolverines were stopped on fourth-and-1 from Riverhead’s 4 on their next drive, and they were intercepted on a third-and-1 play on Riverhead’s 6 on the drive after that, leaving the score at 8-7 Newfield (1-4) by halftime.
In the fourth quarter, after both teams got their offenses going a little more, the Riverhead defense stopped Newfield on a fourth-and-3 from Riverhead’s 10 to seal the win. (more…)
