MIDLAND, Texas - The Riverside Rangers put up a valiant effort in their area round game against Springtown, but the Porcupines were too much to handle.
Riverside saw their season come to an end by a final score of 62-21.
Things looked promising for the Rangers in the first quarter of the game.
Springtown would score a touchdown first to take a 7-0 lead.
After Riverside's defense recovered a fumble, the Rangers took advantage scoring their first touchdown of the game courtesy of a quarterback keeper from Riverside's Derek Vasquez.
That tied the game at 7 in the first quarter.
In the second quarter with Springtown up 20-7, Riverside would get in the end zone for the second time of the game following a long touchdown pass from Vasquez to Carlos Rojas III.
That would cut into Springtown's lead, 20-14.
Unfortunately, that was as close as the Rangers would get.
The Porcupines would continue to rack up points going into halftime with a 41-14 lead.
By then it was too big of a hill for the Rangers to climb as they would score only one more touchdown in the second half.
This is the second time in three years that Riverside sees their season come to an end at the hands of Springtown in the area round.
The Rangers end their season with an overall record of 9-3.
