Dresden not ‘upset’ with R’side outcome
Dale Hutcherson threw a pair of fourth quarter touchdown passes and sixth-ranked Dresden (Class 2A) capitalized on four turnovers to upset No. 3 and previously-unbeaten Riverside 20-14 Friday night.
The loss snapped the Panthers’ streak of 14 consecutive regular season victories.
Hutcherson connected with Daniel Harris twice for TDs in the final period on plays covering 24 and 36 yards, respectively, and threw for 102 of his 142 yards in the fourth quarter.
Dresden (6-2) sealed the victory with a fumble recovery at its own seven-yard line with less than a minute remaining.
Riverside (6-1) controlled much of the contest with 100-yard rushers Brice White (152) and Jerrett Scott (111), but couldn’t overcome a pair of costly fumbles and two interceptions.
