The Patriots’ Devon Rivers scored five touchdowns as his team handily defeated the Falcons 41-18.

‘Bend, but don’t break’ is a phrase often heard during football games, particularly when talking about a team’s defense. That was the style that Heritage’s football team had against Freedom in the Bay Valley Athletic League opener on Friday, Sept. 30.

The Patriots scored a touchdown on the game’s opening possession to take a 7-0 lead.

That lead was challenged throughout the rest of the game but was never surrendered. The Falcons hung with Heritage throughout the first half but in the second half, the Patriots got some separation on the scoreboard and came away with a 41-18 win.
