The Riverside Academy Rebels scored on their first three possessions and never looked back as they opened District 9-1A play with a 48-21 win over St. Martin’s Friday.
Rebels quarterback Gage Larvadain ran for a 53-yard touchdown on the opening play from scrimmage and later added a 74-yard scoring run, and Elijah Davis added touchdown runs of 55 and 67 yards — all in the first quarter. Manny Franklin put the Rebels ahead 34-7 with a 14-yard run.
Luke Hymel connected with Terrell Hilliard on an 18-yard pass but, following a fumble, Andre Murphy scooped and scored to make it 41-14. Cade Middleton capped the scoring with a kickoff return.
The Rebels (5-1) will host West St. John Friday night for Homecoming.
