Andrew Brown threw for more than 100 yards and a touchdown during Riverside's win over Travelers Rest last Friday night.

Warriors end losing streak

As time expired last Friday night, the Riverside football team and its fans did something they weren’t able to do all of last season.

They celebrated a win.

The Warriors topped Travelers Rest, 7-3, during the team’s season opener, and head coach Phil Smith said he couldn’t have been happier for his guys.

The Yellow Jackets struggled to keep up during the second half of Friday night's home opener against Westside. Greer will look to rebound from its first loss of the season this week on the road at Byrnes.

Greer falls in season opener

Westside ran away from Greer during the second half of Friday night’s season opener at Dooley Field.

The Yellow Jackets had been going toe-to-toe with the Class AAAAA powerhouse, but a missed opportunity before the half cost Greer seven points, and a lot of momentum.

“It was an awesome feeling because I knew everyone on this team had my back, especially the seniors,” Brown said. “We have such great leaders like Brooks, O’Brien, Robert Marrow, Anias Brockman, Bennett Von Waldner, Kris White and countless others—I wouldn’t want to go to battle with anyone else.”
