DUNLAP - The River Valley Wolverines fell to Boyer Valley, 66-22, in non- district football here on Friday, despite 376 yards passing by the Wolverines' Brennan Riedemann. Riedemann attempted 46 passes and completed 30 for two touchdowns, and had one pass intercepted. Skylar Shever also completed the only pass he attempted, good for another 12 yards, so the Wolverines' total passing yardage was 388 yards. RV's Blane Cullen caught half of Riedemann's completions, and his 15 receptions were four more than anyone else caught in the state's opening week of games. The Wolverines' game was a little lop-sided in favor of passing, as Shever's 35 yards on 10 carries led the team's ground attack.
Jacob Preuss grabbed both of Riedemann's touchdown passes on short tosses and Preuss had five receptions overall, good for 53 yards. Zak Gander had four receptions for 52 yards, Josh Pansegrau three for 32 yards and Parker Goettsch had three for 16 yards. Skylar Shever grabbed only one pass, but it was good for a 44 yard gain.
Jacob Preuss was in on 14 tackles for RV, while Parker Goettsch was involved in a dozen stops, Brennan Riedemann eight, and Tanner Cobb seven.
