After opening with a win at home a week earlier, the Mapleton Sailors football team was on the road at Riddle last Friday to take on The Irish.
Mapleton got another standout performance from sophomore JJ Neece, who carried the ball 20 times for a total of 258 yards rushing.
Neece also connected on 4 of 7 passes, including three touchdowns for the Sailors.
Senior Evan Moso claimed 93 yards on for receptions, and also rushed for 54 yards against the Irish, scoring 5 touchdowns in the process.
Defensively, Neece led with 15 tackles on the night.
Despite the effort, Riddle managed to hang on for a very narrow 1-touchdown win, 52-44.
Friday, Mapleton will be back on the road at Glendale High School, beginning at 7 p.m.
