Raiders Grey had another strong offensive and defensive outing on Saturday. Starting the game off a little sluggish (due to the heat) the team picked up their game on both sides of the ball shortly after the first series. After giving up a touchdown to the Mustangs off a lost fumble the offence turned around and marched down the field, capping off the drive with a touchdown by #48 Ryder Lewis (conversion made by #7 Logan Maroni). The defense held strong on the Mustang’s next possession and the offense ended up with great field position. On the next offensive series #12 Nate Anderson orchestrated a great drive, finishing it off with a guard around play to # 45 Jett Labossiere who ran in for the score (conversion made by #7 Logan Maroni).
In the second half we saw some more strong defensive play, limiting the Mustang’s to only one touchdown and stopping them on the conversion. Good tackling by the entire defense and some heads-up plays on short yardage kept their offense off the field for most of the half. The offense continued to eat up chunks of yardage scoring two more times, one off of a kick-off returned by #61 Lewis Hartung and the other a nifty run by #48 Ryder Lewis. Every week we see our team getting better and better, incorporating the fundamentals that will allow them to be safe and successful in the sport of football. This week we saw two great halves of football with strong play in all three phases of the game. Great job boys!!!!!
