The RMS football team hit the road for the second week in a row on Tuesday, September 28th, and it proved unkind once again, as the Bears lost a nail-biter to the Tolar Bulldogs of Liberty County, 26 – 24. Despite playing better on both sides of the ball than they had the previous week, a combination of untimely interceptions, unfortunate fumbles, and Bulldog big plays led to the RMS loss.
The Bears were led on defense by linebacker Monterious Loggins. Loggins had 5 tackles, 3 assists, 1 tackle for loss, 1 forced fumble, and 1 pass defended. “Monte had a tremendous game for us. He has been a leader all season long,” Coach Joey Jacobs said. Gage Chance added 4 tackles and 3 assists to the defensive effort, and Feleipé Franks tallied an interception.
On offense, it was a “Jekyll and Hyde night,” according to Jacobs. “We looked smooth at moments, and then we looked very raw at others," he said. The Bears found tough sledding in the ground game. Sebastian Garner, Monterious Loggins, and Feleipé Franks combined to rush for over 100 yards on the night, but negative totals from other RMS rushers brought the total rushing yards gained down to 83.
The Bears faired a little better through the air. Quarterback Feleipé Franks was 11 of 26 for 163 yards and 1 touchdown. Franks also threw 2 interceptions. Franks’ leading receiver was Keith Gavin, who had 5 catches for 62 yards. Antonio Morris was the recipient of a 30 yard touchdown toss from Franks.
The loss dropped the Bears record to 2-2 (1-1 in conference). Riversprings will face another tough opponent in undefeated Quincy on October 7th in Quincy at 6:00 p.m. Riversprings then returns home to take on the Taylor County Bulldogs on Tuesday, October 12th at 6:00 p.m. Both games will be conference matchups.
