From there, a string of five passes made by Emarion Lopez ‘23, Reid Saxon ‘22, William Waghorne ‘23, Evan Herrera ‘22, and Logan Hanson ‘22 were made, gaining 30 yards. Despite the good communication and consistent passing, the Raiders were able to score two touchdown passes, ending the first quarter 14-0.

“My team played good offensively,” Lopez said. “We were able to run the ball and also make some amazing passing plays. No matter what the score was, we kept fighting.”

With continuous efforts made by the offense line during the second quarter, the Warriors made several attempts to score a touchdown. Both teams moved the ball up and down the field but ended in unsuccessful attempts of scoring. However, the Raiders were able to score a touchdown in the last minute, making the score 21-0.
