The Raiders jumped out to an early 14-3 lead on the strength of two Jamir Dismukes TD passes, one to Billy Dunn Jr. and the other to Micah Hills.  Carson Fowler converted both PAT’s.

The Cardinals countered with a pair of TD’s of their own to take a 17-14 lead but the Raiders responded with a Dismukes to Will Greer 61-yard TD bomb DSC_7273 Men DSC_7299 Men DSC_7335 Men DSC_7440 Mento retake the lead at 20-17.   Mentor added a touchdown late in the half to head into the locker room with a 24-20 lead.

The Cardinals flexed their muscle in the 2nd half outscoring the scrappy Raiders 21-7 for the final margin of victory.

The Raiders will look to rebound Friday night when they travel to Strongsville to take on the Mustangs in another tough GCC matchup.
