Lansdowne, VA (June 3, 2017) – There was no question that a visit from the Dominion Titans would be a test for the red hot Riverside Rams. Would the home field prove to be enough of an advantage? The Dominion crowd was good, too, so a Ram victory was not a given.
Riverside built an early 5-1 lead, but the Titans fought back and the score was tied, 10-10, at halftime. After the break, Dominion tallied first, but the Rams edged in front by the end of the third quarter, 12-11.
Chas Sumser Photography was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
And that's when the home field advantage kicked in. Spurred on by their roaring fans--and the fight song repeated after every goal--the Rams scored five times in the final period to gain the victory and a high seed in the state tournament.
Final score: Riverside 17 - Dominion 13.
