NILES OH- The Raiders came into Bo Rein stadium looking to exact some revenge for the last time they were there. It was the last time the Raiders lost an NE8 game. The got that revenge Friday night with a 41-0 win.
South Range got the opening drive and went right down the field and scored. The offense never looked back. They scored on 6 of the 7 drives they had on the evening. And the defense showed up and pitched a shut out. The closest the Red Dragons got was late in the forth when they made it down to the 4 yard line. But the Raider D stepped up and kept them out of the end zone.
The Raiders had a balanced attack. Billy Skripac was 8-10 for 166yrds and 3 touchdowns. Dylan Dominguez had 14 carries for 106 yards and 1 td. Leading receiver was Shane Lindstrom with 3 catches for 78 yards and 2 tds.
The highlight for Niles was Antuan Gardner. The sophomore running back had 84 yards running the ball.
Niles travels to Struthers next week and the Raiders return home to face Jefferson.
