Riverview (0-2) fell to SMCC 44-6 at home last week while Milan (2-0) defeated Flat Rock 30-8. Milan won last years game by a score of 27-7. Riverview leads the all-time series 9-8.
Riverview has struggled the first two games mainly because of youth. Junior RB Cam Rogers has been a bright spot for the Pirates while junior DE Austin Boike has led the defense.
Milan struggled a bit last week with Flat Rock but seniors Trace Lindeman and Demetrius Barnes eventually broke open the game in the 2nd half. The defense has been solid all season with numerous Big Reds leading the way.
This looked like an early season marquee match up in August, but the teams are headed in different directions at this point. Prediction: Milan 28 Riverview 13
