Riverside Panthers used defense and a steady ground attack to get its first win of the young season Friday night at Laurel.
The Panthers were aided by its defense forcing two turnovers, one a pick-6 interception, to stymie the Laurel offense in its 24-7 victory.
Kyle Marweg recovered a fumble while Lance Fisher collected an interception and returned it for a touchdown for Riverside.
LeMarcus Cleckley and Austin Dambach cashed in on a 10-yard and 15-yard touchdown runs respectively to spark the Panther offense. Adam Saunders added a 34-yard field goal for Riverside to round out its scoring.
Riverside (1-1 overall) will travel to Mohawk on Friday for another section contest.
