Wind River Stays Unbeaten With a Big Win Over Riverside
A year ago, Wind River turned in their first winning season in football since 2009 and made the semi-finals of the 1A 9-Man playoffs. The Cougars have high hopes this season and are 3-0 after a 50-6 win over Riverside over the weekend.
Wind River put 22 points on the board in the first quarter thanks to a 43-yard interception return for a touchdown from Frederick Cooper, followed by a 6-yard run for a score by Frederick, then a 52-yard gallop to the end zone by Jaycee Herbert. Riverside could never recover from that onslaught.
The Cougars were also productive in the 2nd quarter as Frederick reeled off a 53-yard run for a touchdown and Herbert scampered 68 yards for another TD. Riverside found the end zone later in the 2nd as Trenton Coronel found Conner Paxton but the Rebels trailed 38-6 at the intermission.
Frederick who ran for 190 yards put another touchdown in the books in the 3rd quarter with Carter Fowler concluding the Wind River by scoring a 1-yard TD run. The Cougars have a very interesting road game this week at Big Piney while Riverside at 2-1 on the year will host St. Stephens.
