OCALA — The Seven Rivers Christian football team probably wanted to come out Friday night at conference foe Ocala Christian Academy and put last year’s 0-9 campaign in the rear view mirror.
Instead, the Warriors buried it.
Behind 550 yards rushing and a hard-hitting defense, Seven Rivers scored eight touchdowns en route to a 65-28 victory over the Crusaders.
The win makes the Warriors 1-0 overall and 1-0 in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference’s North Division. The loss drops OCA to 0-2 and 0-1.
