The Perdido Raiders have officially started a winning streak by sealing a 24-13 victory over the St. Michael Cardinals, putting the Raiders at a record of 3-0 so far.
None can deny that the Cardinals put up a strong fight, but the Raiders would not be denied. Quarterback Hayden Coley threw for a whopping 156 yards of completed passes. Roan Branum, the charging bull that simply could not be stopped, racked up an incredible 135 rushing yards, 125 receiving yards, 1 rushing touchdown, and 2 receiving touchdowns. Another touchdown pass was caught by Coen Lambeth, who crossed into the endzone dragging an opponent with him.
As mentioned, the Cardinals played hard, but the Raider defense played harder. Asher Catrett was an absolute battering ram, landing 8 tackles, 1 sack, and causing 1 forced fumble which led to a turnover. Interceptions were caught once by Destin Wallace and twice by Hayden Coley.
Head Coach Vincent Coley and assistant coaches Judd Coley, Chad Lambeth, and Josh Overstreet could not have been prouder to see the boys win such a hard-fought game.
The Raiders take the field next in an away game against Summerdale on September 23.
