Riverview followed up a disheartening loss to West Shamokin with a relatively close contest against North Catholic, but still fell short, 16-0, on Saturday afternoon in Class A Eastern Conference action at Riverside Park in Oakmont.

Last week, West Shamokin shocked Riverview, 25-6, to snap a state-record 46-game losing streak.

For North Catholic (3-1, 3-1), sophomore running back P.J. Fulmore rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, and junior quarterback Ryan Kirby completed eight of 12 passes for 80 yards.

Junior quarterback Jason Anthony, who completed six of 15 attempts for 88 yards, and senior wide receiver Tim Wagner, who had two receptions for 44 yards, led Riverview (0-4, 0-4). The Raiders have been outscored, 81-14, and shut out twice this season.
