The Richmond Hill Broncos hosted the Central Florida Bulls in a neutral site location at Mobley Park in Port Wentworth. The tightly contested battle ended in a 22-20 victory for the Broncos. 

“We played really well against the Bulls,” owner and coach Dylan Peterson said. “The defense really stepped up, and that was the difference in the game.”

Both defenses stood tall, as the first quarter ended in a 0-0 tie. The Broncos fumbled the ball away late in the quarter, but got it right back via an interception from Montraveon Futch, who nearly returned it for a touchdown. Futch would also add another interception in the quarter. 

“The defense was just lights out,” Peterson said. “We stuffed them a lot during the first quarter and they struggled to gain any momentum.” 

In the second period, the Broncos would capitalize on the second interception by Futch by scoring a touchdown on a run by Dontre Wallace. The two-point attempt was unsuccessful.  

On the ensuing possession, Kentory Augustine would strip the ball of the quarterback’s hands mid-play, and ran the fumble back for a thirty yard touchdown. The two-point conversion would be good for a 14-0 lead into the break. 

While the Broncos would give up three touchdowns later in the game, the defense stood firm when it mattered most, and allowed for them to secure the ‘Battle of the Border' win. 

“While the game got stressful late, we were able to pull out the win,” Peterson said. “I was able to strategically call plays to put us in a good position on defense, and our guys executed the plays. Very happy to have gotten the win, but could have done without all the stress.”

The Richmond Hill Broncos would improve to .500 on the season after the win, as they now sit at a 2-2 record on the year.
