"That's what happens in the [Mountain State Athletic Conference]. You get beat up for four games and you have a chance to win one and you're beat up. And that makes it tough."
Cody Correll led Riverside (0-5) with 70 yards on 16 carries and Jacob Mullins pitched in with 43 yards on 15 rushes.
After Osborne connected with Donte Nabors on a 47-yard touchdown pass on the second play from scrimmage, Woodrow came close to blowing it open a couple of times early. But fumbles on back-to-back plays in Riverside territory and an interception thrown into the Warriors' end zone killed three prime scoring chances.
The Flying Eagles were also flagged eight times for 70 yards in the first half, one of which negated a 3-yard touchdown run for Hancock and led to Riverside's opportunistic pick.
While the Warriors weren't able to capitalize with points in the first half, they did control the game, running 35 offensive plays compared to 24 for Woodrow.
The Eagles carried just a 12-0 lead into the break by virtue of Osborne's first scoring toss and a second to Trey Cole from 20 yards away with just 11 seconds remaining before the half.
"We had a little bit of a, 'coming to Jesus moment' at halftime," Lilly said. "I felt like the first drive in the second half was going to be critical for us to come out and execute and play clean. We had four turnovers in the first half and you can't win games like that."
Woodrow marched 61 yards with that opening possession and 59 yards with its next to establish control. In the deciding third quarter, the Flying Eagles outscored Riverside 18-0 and outgained the Warriors 146-5.
Dajon Watkins provided the biggest highlight for Riverside, returning an Osborne fumble 46 yards for a touchdown to begin the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit to 30-7.
But Woodrow's Josh Creed answered with an 8-yard scoring run and Ronald Blanks scampered 62 yards to the end zone on his only carry to stretch the margin even wider. Creed also had a 70-yard punt return touchdown for the Flying Eagles.
