FRANKLIN – Franklin bounced back from a season-opening shutout by scoring a 34-20 win against Riverdale on Friday night.
The Rebels (1-1) capitalized on three of the Warriors’ (1-1) four turnovers and watched as the visitors were penalized 11 times for 100 yards in the second half alone.
“Positvity is what got us through this game,” said Teshawn Jenkins, who had an interception and a fumble recovery in the win. “The second half, they were just mad. (Riverdale) just wanted the ball and they did anything they could to get that ball.”
Franklin took the lead for good with 48 seconds left in the first half. Seven plays and 32 yards after a muffed punt, the second Lannom Craddock score — a 4-yarder to join his 54-yarder — gave the Rebels a 21-14 lead.
Penalties then plagued the Warriors in the second half.
A block in the back and a holding call crushed their opening drive. A personal foul on defense and a block in the back on a punt return pinned Riverdale at its own 5 on the second series. A fumbled snap by quarterback Christian Souffrant at the 3 was recovered by Conner Palk in the end zone for a 28-14 lead.
Then the fourth quarter began.
The Warriors were flagged seven times for 55 yards in the quarter and saw Canaan Owens ejected for kicking with the Rebels inside the red zone. Six plays later, Kyle Evans threw his second wide-open TD pass of the game (6 yards to Carter Bowman). Evans also found Gentry Neese wide open in the corner for a 33-yard score to end the first quarter.
“You tell me. I have no idea. It’s kind of one-sided,” Riverdale coach Ron Aydelott said of a Warriors team that was penalized 15 times for 119 yards to a Rebels squad flagged five times for 31 yards. “That’s two weeks in a row we’ve dealt with that. I guess that’s part of being on the road. If they’re penalties I’m good with that. But let the kids play. Come on, let the kids play.”
Jarek Campbell scored all three touchdowns for the Warriors, hauling in left-sideline passes from Brandon Bea (62 and 64 yards) and a 52-yarder from Marqwell Odom on a wide receiver reverse.
