The Pilots are playoff bound!

River heading back to the postseason after topping Frontier and getting a little help

This season has been a challenge for River.

The Pilots lost its superstar from the past four years, Lukas Isaly. They also had to learn to play without several other important players in Drew Dietz, Drew Wagnild, Luc Baker and others.

River got off to a slow start, losing its first two games and starting the season 2-4.

But regardless of the struggles, when Week 11 arrives, it doesn’t matter how you get there. It only matters that you’re there.

The Pilots (5-5) got hot when it mattered and also got a little bit of luck and they’ll be heading to the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Entering Week 10, a lot of things had to go right for River to earn its fourth-straight postseason appearance.
