Riverton 62, Dixie 28
Written by Brett Brostrom
ST. GEORGE — The Dixie Flyers took on Riverton this week, falling 62-28 in the DHS Homecoming game.
Dixie struggled on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. The very first play of the game resulted in an Ammon Takau interception to Riverton’s secondary, allowing Riverton to score within the first minute of the game. The Silverwolves never let up after that, continually running the ball well until the final whistle and tearing up Dixie’s inexperienced defensive line.
Riverton running back Paden Cayias was the star of the night, breaking multiple big runs through the middle of the field to Dixie’s end zone, racking up 182 yards along the way on 21 carries. Dixie didn’t seem to have an answer for the speedster, and continued to struggle stopping the run as Riverton went on to a 62-28 Riverton victory.
Riverton finished with 485 rushing yards and 531 total yards in the game. Dixie had 300 yards, including 92 rushing by Tre Miller.
