Riverside played its first away game on Sep. 8th against non-conference opponent Shadle Park. Since Shadle doesn’t have lights on their football field, the game was played at University High School. 

Shadle would receive the ball first but could not score and were forced to punt. That punt pinned the Rams on their own 1-yard line. Shadle Park stuffed Riverside’s first play from scrimmage, resulting in a safety. The next series of possessions included multiple turnovers by both teams, including an interception by Riverside’s Andrew Campea. 

The Ram’s QB Jake Gaffaney would open up the scoring for Riverside with a 72-yard TD run followed up by a 6-yard TD pass to Campea. The Rams tacked on a monster 47-yard field goal by Gaffaney. In the second half, Riverside scored one more time when Blake Koesel returned a squib kick for the TD. In the end, Shadle Park was just too much for the Rams, as Riverside lost 33-23.
