This Friday the Sharks will face their rivals, the Indians, at East Bay at 7:30.
Last week Riverview faced Bloomingdale in the pre-season game where the Bulls came out on top 44-22. Although, William Mosel believes the score is misleading to how the Sharks actually played, “We did a lot of really good things,” says Mosel, “the effort was there.” He claims the loss didn’t halter the player’s motivation because it was a pre-season game, but, “No one likes to lose.”
It’s expected that the game against East Bay will be a very physical and spirited game. Last year the Sharks lost to the Indians with a final score of 24-21. Riverview hasn’t been able to defeat East Bay football in about 6 years and the hopes for victory are very high this year, having a new head coach. Mosel wants to make some improvements for Friday night’s game, he says, “A lot of mistakes need to be eliminated. They need to be able to run the ball more and stop runs.”
