The Riverton Ram football squad has been named this weeks "Craw-Kan Team of the Week" from the Southeast Kansas area for their 28-22 road victory over Southeast-Cherokee on Friday in week seven of the football season.

"We probably played our best football of the season in the first half against Southeast, despite our turnovers inside the 10-yard line," Riverton head coach, Ryan McFarland said. 

Riverton would score on a Logan Edwards two yard touchdown with 18.9 seconds remaining in the game to pick up the win in the opening round of district for the Rams.

Riverton, who is a heavy running team, was led by the attack of senior Landon North who gained 193 yards on 26 carries and Edwards who added 90 yards on the night. 

"Our players have really bought into what we are trying to do and our coaches are doing a great job of getting our players in position to be successful." McFarland said.

Riverton, who plays in 3A District 8, improved to 1-0 in district play. The Rams (3-4) will face Cherryvale at home this week. Last week the Chargers lost to Galena 36-21 in opening round of district play. Galena (1-0 in district) will play Southeast this week. 

"Being 1-0 in our district gives our kids a little extra confidence going forward." McFarland said.
