Raiders attain 3-0 for season with lopsided victory

The Lake Roosevelt Raiders stuffed and mounted the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions 44-0 in Liberty Bell Friday.

Highlights included QB Steven Flowers making a 30-yard run for the end zone in the first quarter, and throwing a 32-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyrell Kiser in the second. Josiah Desautel scored a touchdown on a 50-yard rush in the third. Desautel also had a touchdown reception, and intercepted a pass on defense, which he ran in for a touchdown, but that TD was called back.

"He had a great game," said Head Coach Loren Endsley. Kiser also had an interception on defense that he returned for 64 yards, giving the Raiders good field position. Freshman Traey Clark also picked one off.

"We played a ton of younger players and backup players, which was great for their development and growth," Endsley said. "A lot of young players stepped up and played huge roles. It was the most proud I've been of this team ... the first time we played an entire game, all four quarters' worth of great Raider football."

Endsley, who was the line coach last year, was also proud of his defensive line. "The defensive line was disruptive and forced a ton of problems for Liberty Bell and they were getting after their QB all night," he said.

Darian Lindsey sacked the Liberty Bell quarterback twice. And he made seven tackles, including three for a loss. Flowers, Tony Nichols, and Angelo Clark each also had a sack, in addition to their other tackles.

"Flowers had another great game both on Offense and on Defense," the coach said. Flowers as QB ran two touchdowns in and threw three more, one each to Kiser, Desautel, and Kolby Picard.

This week, the Raiders play the Brewster Bears on Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. at home on the Raider football field. In the preseason, when the team captains were asked which game they looked forward to the most, they all named the perennial powerhouse "Brewster."

"We can't wait for this game," Endsley said.
