Avalon Prepares for Final CAFC Regular Season Game

The Avalon Black Knights are back at it Friday as they face the Riverdale Baptist Crusaders in their last conference game of the season.

Riverdale (5-3 overall, 2-1 in the CAFC) only averages 65 passing yards per game, but they make up for it on the ground averaging 240 yards per game.  They run an option offense that looks to get their running back involved.

The Crusaders average 23 points per game and hold quality wins against Maret School and Maryland School for the Deaf.

Avalon’s defense must stop quarterback Nate Washington who has thrown seven touchdowns this season.

Plus, running back Denzel Goode has 434 rushing yards on the season with three touchdowns.

Black Knights running back Rachid Ibrahim looks to build off of his best game of the season last week where he finished with 324 rushing yards.

Also, Avalon hopes to propel themselves into their third straight CAFC Championship game with a win Friday.

“It is important for us to win Friday because we want home field advantage for the conference championship game,” said senior Jacquille Veii.

The team is pleased with the game plan and they are eager to get out on the field and execute.
