Going into their game against the Lost River Raiders in Merrill on Friday night, the Etna Lions were probably feeling pretty good after their win over upper division U-Prep the prior week. However, the Raiders, an Oregon small school powerhouse, delivered a severe reality check. Never mind the creative officiating, the Raiders ran over, around , and through the Lions for most of the night on the way to a 42-13 win.
After a fairly even first seven or eight minutes, the Raiders went on a 75-yard march that led to the first touchdown of the game, and a 7-0 lead with 1:14 left in the first quarter.
The Raiders then picked off an Etna pass, returned it to the Lion eight-yard-line, and quickly added another TD, making it 14-0 just 16 seconds into the second quarter. The flood gates had opened and Lost River was happy to go with the flow. By halftime, it was 20-0. (more…)Share on Facebook
