Raiders can’t keep pace with Bluejays
BAXTER — It was a tale of two halves in Baxter on Friday night.
After one half, it looked as if the Collins-Maxwell/Baxtwell Raiders and the Bondurant-Farrar Bluejays were locked in a fairly tight battle at 19-6, but in the second half, the Bluejays picked up their end of the scoring and pulled away from the host-Raiders, 49-27.
Leading 6-0 in the first quarter, the Bluejays drove down the field and punched in a touchdown with about one minute remaining in the first quarter. When the Raiders got the ball back, they were determined to score. When the drive appeared to stall out around the Bluejays’ 40-yard line. The Raiders looked at a fourth down and four yard hurdle and called senior quarterback Zach Samson’s number. Samson ran the ball up the middle for six yards to keep the drive going. Two plays later, Samson would find Bryce Kemp in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown to pull the Raiders within six.
