The Raiders traveled to Muscle Shoals tonight to take on the Trojans of Muscle Shoals High School in their first area game. The field was turf and it took a few minutes for the team to get going, but they sure got going. In the 9th min Sam Hartley won the ball and took it straight to goal for the 1-0 lead. Four minutes later Sam played a corner in and Sean O’Hare headed it back across the goal to find Sachin Katyal who put it in for the 2-0 lead. Six minutes later it was Tyler Williams who scored on a cross from Sam. Sean got in to the scoring action in the 26th minute finishing a cross from…. Wait for it… Guess who… Sam. With 6 minutes to go to half Parker League played a perfect ball over the top to, yes you know who, Sam who one-timed it past the keeper for his Hat Trick.
The game went to half with the Raiders up 6-0. The Raiders made some adjustments at halftime and gave some valuable minutes to key Freshmen; Anders Hughes, Sam Servick, Ethan Kubista and Owen Phillips. The team still dominated the possession. In the 48th minute Wes Minton increased the lead to 7-0 on a nice ball from Ted Kubista. Goalie, wait what?, I mean forward Max Shaw scored on a free kick to make it 8-0. Late in the game we had a little mix up in the back that allowed the Trojans to get on the board. It was only 2 minutes later when Wes got the goal back to finish the scoring. The Raiders win 9-1 and win a key first area game. They Raider take on area opponent Athens High School next Thursday 3/7 @ Randolph. Come out and support your Raiders. #WeReady #GameDayOnGarth
