CANFIELD, OH- Take every comparison you’ve seen or heard about this year’s South Range Football Team, and throw it aside.
All because we’re just now beginning to understand that we have yet to scratch the surface on the talent this Raider team is capable of showcasing. Especially after flexing their muscles in a 49-6 performance in Week 12 over Crestwood Saturday Night.
Thrive, and advance.
The Raiders started the party just over three minutes in when Connor Jones dashed into the endzone from 2 yards out to give the Raiders the lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
From there, it was Dylan Dominguez finding paydirt twice- the first carry from 25 yards out, and the second punched in from 3 yards away. Dominguez would finish with 139 yards on 14 carries, and add in an impressive one-handed reception for 27 yards out of the backfield. Other rushing leaders for the Raiders consisted of Landon Moore with 41 yards, Billy Skripac with 34 yards, Jake Starkey’s 26, Connor Jones’ 25, and Ethan Zinz’s 20 yards.
The Raiders as a team finished with 517 yards of total offense, including 314 of them coming on the ground.
Skripac continued to be the most efficient quarterback in the area’s recent memory- completing 9 of 11 passes for 185 yards and 2 scores. Tristan Toy provided Raider fans a glimpse of the future with a beautiful touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to Brady Crumbacher from 18 yards out in the left corner of the endzone.
Leading the receiving corps for South Range on the night was Shane Lindstrom, who continued to dazzle those in attendance each time he touched the football. South Range’s best-kept secret, Ayden Leon went 3/3 on targets converting them for 56 yards and a touchdown. Connor Jones hauled in a 45-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter continuing to showcase his versatility in the up-tempo Raider offense.
The lone highlight for Crestwood came in the fourth quarter when Ethan Strahan picked off an errant pass from Tristan Toy and returned it to the house, and ending the scoreless streak for South Range’s defense over the last 3 weeks.
With the victory, South Range will line up to play Garaway next Saturday night at 7pm at a location yet to be determined at the time of writing. YSN will again be streaming the game as part of their Power Play Package at $9.99.
