Game Recap – View photos in the online gallery and in Vidigami

The Raiders took on the Briarwood Christian Lions in the AHSAA 4A-5A State Championship game last night. It was a battle of two great teams that both deserved to be in that game. The match was physical and fast-paced from the start and both teams were looking to get an early advantage. Briarwood was fast and pressed the Raiders back line. Randolph was trying to slow the game down and keep possession. Mid way through the first half Barrett Butler got a ball to the corner and played a beautiful shot across. The ball went sailing over the keeper’s outstretched hands and in to the net for the first goal of the game. Only six minutes later the Lions found the equalizer on a great through ball. The game went to the half 1-1.

The second half was just as intense. On a great individual effort, the Lion’s forward got past the defense and played a nice ball across to give the Lion’s their first lead of the game. The Raiders didn’t take long to answer. The Raiders got it down on the Lion’s end where Parker League was fouled. He took to the free kick and put it off the crossbar. Sean O’Hare jumped up to get the rebound and was taken down by a Briarwood defender in the box. The Raiders were given a PK and Sam Hartley hammered it home. The game was tied with just over 30 minutes to play. The Raiders were settling down and started to possess the ball more and more. They were looking for the game winner. The Lion’s fought hard and played a counter-attacking style, looking to play fast over the top. In the 67th minute Ian Krajna played a nice ball to Sridhar Karne wide. He dribbled past a defender and laid a perfect pass back to Sam Hartley. Sam hammered the shot into the back of the net to give the Raiders the 3-2 lead. The Raiders held on and claimed the 2017 4A-5A State Championship for Randolph.

The Raiders finish a magical season as State Champions. The team won 24 games and only lost two. They scored 119 goals and only allowed 24 with 17 shutouts. This is the seventh state championship for the Randolph Boys soccer program.

The Raiders faced the Sylacauga Aggies in the semi-finals tonight. It was a matchup of teams with the best records in the state of Alabama, across all classifications. The game looked to be a great matchup but the Raiders had other ideas. Playing with their full lineup for only the second game of the year, the Raiders dominated the game. They moved the ball at will and had the Aggies chasing the ball for most of the game. In the 8th minute of the game the Raiders cashed in. Sridhar Karne played a ball across the front of the goal where Barrett Butler first shot the ball off the keeper but got his own rebound for the opening goal. Sam Hartley hit the post a few minutes later and Sridhar just missed one off of the line. Half way through the first half Parker took a free kick from 35 yards out. The rocket shot went past the diving keeper to give the Raiders the 2-0 lead. The Raiders continued to dominate but the score went to the half 2-0.

The domination continued in the second half and the Raiders controlled the possession. In the 47th minute Sam got his goal. He took a great pass and sped between the two center backs to play it far post past the diving keeper. The Raiders up 3-0 were on cruise control and although they gave up a late goal, dominated the majority of the game. The Aggies had the AHSAA all time leading scorer and he did not have a goal. Hats off to the stellar Randolph defense.The Raiders move on to the Championship Game tomorrow.

The Raiders will face the Briarwood Christian Lions. The Lions are 17-5-2 on the year. The Championship will be played at John Hunt Park at 7:00 PM Friday night. Come out and support your Raiders.Vs

Game Recap

The Raiders hosted the St. John Paul II Catholic High School Falcons in a second round playoff match up. This was the fourth year in a row the two teams faced each other with Randolph winning the previous three.

The game was back and forth from the start. The Falcons were looking to play with their speed and the Raiders with possession. Both teams worked hard trying to find opportunities at goal. Midway through the first have the Raiders had the first opportunity when Ian Krajna had a great shot but right at the keeper. The Falcons had a good opportunity when a good cross was headed just over the goal. The game was fast an intense but no other good opportunities in the first half. The game went scoreless to the break.

The second half was much of the same. Both teams worked hard to find a goal but both defenses had an answer. The Falcons offense was fast and the Raider defense, Kevin Pirouzbakht, Lauren Honeycutt, Andy Hufford and Spencer Laue, were up for every challenge. The Raiders had a few chances but nothing that could give them the lead in the second half.

The game went to overtime. It would be two five minute overtimes and golden goal. Golden Goal is the first team to score wins. If neither team scores the game goes to kicks from the mark. The first over time was a stale mate and both team couldn’t find a good look at the goal. The second overtime the Raiders seemed to find another gear. They pressed the falcons and got it deep in their end. Parker League was fouled just outside the box with two minutes remaining in the second overtime. Ian Krajna took the kick and played a dangerous ball into the box. Parker League kept the ball alive sending it into the air. Barrett Butler headed the ball off the crossbar and into the air. They ball came straight back down where Barrett finished the second opportunity giving the Raiders the 1-0 victory.

The Raiders now move on to face Russellville in the third round of the playoffs and a chance to get back to the Final Four. Come out an support the Raiders this Saturday at 7:00 PM @ Randolph.

The match-up was the two top ranked teams in the state and a rematch of the opening game for both teams this season. In the first meeting, the Raiders edged the Wildcats 2-1.

Both Barrett Butler and Parker League had headers go just wide of the post. Guntersville had chances as well. The Wildcats best chance of the night came midway through the first half. The ball looked to be going in but keeper, Max Shaw, made an outstanding save to keep the game scoreless. The game went to the half 0-0.

In the second half, the Raiders possessed the ball more and looked to gain control of the game. The Wildcat defense was quick and was able to keep the Raiders at bay. The boys continued to press and in the 64th minute the hard work paid off. On a throw-in, Barrett launched a great throw in to the box. Parker redirected the throw across the front of the goal where Sridhar Karne came flying in to put it in. The Raiders were up 1-0 but there was a lot of time to play. The Wildcats pressed with numbers, desperate to try and find the equalizer. The defense, Kevin Pirouzbakht, Laurent Honeycutt, Andy Hufford and Spencer Laue were all stellar in their play and didn’t give the Wildcats a good look.
