Raiders use strong 2nd Half for 36-14 Football victory


September 7, 2023

All by himself . . . for a little bit. The Raider passing game was a big part of the victory over Fall City Sacred Heart last Friday night.

The Raiders completed 11 of 20 pass attempts with Nolan Ostdiek also a prime receiver catching four passes for 70 yards.
