The Raider football team emerged from this week’s contests with a perfect 10-0 mark in league play and a 13-1 record overall. This likely positions the boys for a high seed in the upcoming CYO playoffs which begin on November 8. Both St. Andrew and Holy Angels could have put a dent in the Raider’s championship plans, but the boys were up to the challenge. They managed to score on the first play in each game on their way to relatively easy wins. The final score in the St Andrews game was 32-6 and in the Holy Angels game it was 30-6.
All but three of the ten games ended after three quarters due to the mercy rule. Despite this, the team averaged over 36 points per game, while the defense gave up less than 7 points per game. This team has a number of weapons, scoring on offense, defense and kick returns all year. Hopefully, this trend continues in the playoffs as they strive to advance to the final four once again. Good luck Raiders!
