Blackman comes from behind and defeats Riverdale 23-22 for a big region win against their rival.

Beam was 17-of-29 and threw for 286-yards and two touchdowns. His counterpart for the Warriors, Taylor Yancy, also had a great night leading his team. He was 16-of-28 for 134 yards passing and a touchdown. He also scrambled 25-yards for the first TD of the game:
The Warriors built a 13-0 lead, which grew to 16-3 at the half. And with 2:36 in the third, Yancy found C.J. Johnson
After that, the Blaze offense grabbed momentum. A 23-yard pass from Beam to Keionte Newson just before the end of the third quarter cut the lead to 12. And after a Riverdale interception, Newson found the endzone again:
Blackman ended the game with 341-yards of total offense, 286 passing and 55 rushing. Riverdale had 267 yards total offense. 134 through the air, 133 on the ground.
