River View to open new field against rival


BRADSHAW (WVVA) - After two years of existence, the River View Raiders are finally preparing to play a true home game.

Since last season, work has been completed on the field at the school's campus near Bradshaw. The football team had previously been forced to play all their home games at Mount View's Vic Nystrom Stadium in Welch.

The Raiders christen their new field against the cross-county rival Golden Knights Friday evening at 7:30 p.m.

WVVA's Josh Frketic will be there capturing the highlights. In the meantime, a preseason video about the team and their new home has been produced and posted on Facebook. Fans can check it out by clicking here.
