Senior RB Deshod Reese scored from a yard out in double overtime to lift South to a thrilling 27-21 win over Riverside. It was a seesaw game with both teams taking leads in the second half. South missed a FG at the end of regulation that would have won it. Both teams missed FG attempts in the first overtime period. Riverside turned the ball over in double overtime after a bad snap on a FG attempt. Senior QB Justin Grosel ran 20 yards to the 1 yard line, where Reese scored on the next play. The Rebels finish 6-4 (3-4 WRC) and are almost assured of making the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
