    Essex had another first and goal at the gladiators one, but sideline warning pushed ball back to the 15 yard line.

    Half: Riverheads 14, Essex 7.

    Blake Smith with his second interception of the game to end the first half.

    He returned it for a TD but it was ruled dead for reasons unknown.

    The refs are handily winning this state semifinal. Terrible officiating but at least they're calling it awful on both teams

    Riverheads fans have every right to feel upset right now. Inadvertent whistle is the ruling on why Blake Smith’s pick-six was ruled back. Gladiators should be up two touchdowns
