Game 3: Crunchers Grey vs. Lightning, August 24

The Eastman Raiders Grey hosting the La Salle Lightning this past Saturday on what was a very hot and humid day. Both teams played extremely well in what was a defensive battle with only 1 touchdown being scored between both teams. The Raiders scored the only touchdown of the game on their first drive of the 2nd half, a 43 yard drive capped off by a 1 yard goal line plunge by #48 on 4th and 1. The ensuing extra point was successful after #7 shed several tackles before crossing the goal line. Both #48 and #7 ran for several yards this day with drives ending in turnovers as the Lightning defence forced fumbles. Defensively the Raiders racked up several sacks and solid tackles for losses and racked up 2 fumble recoveries. The boys put up a great effort on the day, especially given the temperature that day. Players of the game went to Ryder Lewis #48 on defense and Lewis Hartung #61 on offense.
