Riviera's Rebuild Leads To First Playoff Win In 52 Years

Riviera's Rebuild Leads To First Playoff Win In 52 Years

RIVIERA, TX (KIII SPORTS) - Twelve teams out of the Coastal Bend advanced to the second round of the playoffs, but no team ended a longer playoff drought than Riviera.

The Seahawks won their first postseason game for the first time since 1964, beating Louise 40-6 in the bi-district round. 

Keep in mind, many of the players' parents probably weren't even born yet the last time Kaufer won a playoff game. 

Coach Nathan Borden and his team say the win is historic, but it's a testament to the hard work that the entire program has put in since Borden took over in 2012. 

The Seahawks' bid to make it back-to-back playoff wins will get a big test Friday when they face Burton at 7:30pm at Runge.
