Pilots prove the doubters wrong
A few weeks ago, River seemed like a long shot for the playoffs.
Following a 34-14 loss to Linsly, the Pilots were 4-4, needing two wins to crack the top eight in Division VII, Region 27.
Three weeks later and two wins later, River traveled to Canal Winchester Friday, Nov. 3 to take on the state-ranked Harvest Prep Warriors.
The Pilots had made the playoffs, but most people probably assumed it would be a one-and-done trip.
But proving everyone wrong is just what the Pilots did, defeating the Warriors 39-34 for their first playoff win since 2008.
