Game Recap

This past Friday was truly the Dre Yarbrough show as the Greenwood quarterback dominated our Raiders, carrying the ball 23 times for 302 yards rushing and adding 78 yards and a touchdown through the air. The Raiders were not able to capitalize on key opportunities they had to keep the game close. Still, our Raiders continued to fight through all four quarters and showed the kind of grit that keeps them in first place in the hearts and minds of their fans.

Clearly, this was not the way the Raiders wanted to finish their regular season. Still, they are in the playoffs and will face Northwestern at Northwestern on Thursday at 7:30 PM in a first round playoff game. Unlike many 4 seed vs. 1 seed match-ups, the Raiders have a great opportunity to upset Northwestern. Avoiding mistakes will be the key to the Raiders success. If the game is close going into the fourth quarter, the Raiders have shown they have the stamina and courage to come out on top and advance to Round 2 of the playoffs.

I know this reporter will be there to cheer the Raiders to victory!
