Raiders turn Mustangs into dogfood, clinch playoff spot

LR plays in league championship Friday

 


The Lake Roosevelt Raiders football team showed no mercy to the Bridgeport Mustangs on Friday, defeating them on their own turf 66-0.

LR’s win-loss record now stands at 6-1 for the season and has clinched a playoff spot.

To say the victory was lopsided would be an understatement, with three touchdowns in the first quarter, four in the second and two in the third.

“The Bridgeport game was a lot of fun,” said Raider Head Coach Loren Endsley. “We got to see a lot of the younger players play and see that the future is bright at LR.”

Highlights from the game against the Mustangs include a 56-yard punt return for a touchdown by senior Tyrell Kiser, a 63-yard touchdown pass from Kolby Picard to Trevor McCraigie, a 51-yard touchdown run by Steven Flowers, 41- and 29-yard touchdown runs by Nathaniel Hall, and a 32-yard touchdown run from Tony Nichols.

The Raiders will host the Tonasket Tigers this Friday to compete for the title of league champions in the Central Washington 2B League. The Tigers are 7-0 in league play, 7-1 overall. If LR wins, both teams would be 7-1 in league for the season, but LR would be considered league champion because of the head-to-head victory.

Whoever wins will earn the top seed to the district playoffs, facing their counterpart from the Eastern Washington Athletic Conference, which includes Dayton, DeSales, Tri-Cities Prep, Walla Walla, Valley Academy, Kittitas, Mabton and White Swan.

Each of the teams in that Raider-Tiger matchup will have an automatic playoff spot, Endsley said.

Whoever loses Friday night’s game will, as the number-two seed, face the number-five seed from EWAC, “which is looking like it will be DeSales or White Swan,” Endsley said. And the winner would also advance to state tournament playoffs.

The CW2B league championship game begins at 7 p.m. Friday night on Greene Field in Coulee Dam.
