Lansdowne, VA (June 3, 2017) – There was no question that a visit from the Dominion Titans would be a test for the red hot Riverside Rams. Would the home field prove to be enough of an advantage? The Dominion crowd was good, too, so a Ram victory was not a given.
Chas Sumser, Viva Loudoun photographer, was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
Riverside built an early 5-1 lead, but the Titans fought back and the score was tied, 10-10, at halftime. After the break, Dominion tallied first, but the Rams edged in front by the end of the third quarter, 12-11.
And that’s when the home field advantage kicked in. Spurred on by their roaring fans–and the fight song repeated after every goal–the Rams scored five times in the final period to gain the victory and a high seed in the state tournament.
Final score: Riverside 17 – Dominion 13.
