Brooks O’Brien scored the winning touchdown and intercepted a pass in overtime to lead Riverside to a 13-6 win over J.L. Mann Friday night at the Reservation.

O’Brien scored the decisive TD on a fourth-and-one yard run in overtime. Antoine Kahaleh’s extra point gave Riverside its 7-point lead in overtime.

Mann’s overtime possession ended when O’Brien intercepted Will Phillips’ pass attempt in overtime.

Riverside quarterback Logan DiBenedetto completed a touchdown pass to senior side receiver Brooks O’Brien for the game’s first score. Kahaleh missed the extra point giving the Warriors a 6-0 lead.

Luke Gerrald of Mann intercepted a DiBennedetto pass two minutes into the fourth quarter for a touchdown and Andrew Crane’s extra point kick sailed wide to tie the game at 6-6 and force overtime.

Both Riverside quarterbacks, Andrew Brown and DiBenedetto left the game with injuries. Brown was injured on the first play in overtime when he gained eight yards.

Kahaleh missed field goals in the second and fourth quarter, respectively. His miss with 37 seconds left in the game was Riverside’s final effort to win in regulation.

Riverside is 3-2 and plays at Mauldin next week. J.L. Mann, 1-5, is off.
