On the defensive side of the ball, junior safety Austin Eldred intercepted his fourth pass of the season, now leading the Raiders in interceptions. The Raider defense has only allowed 19 points per game coming into this matchup and continued their strong play against the Hornets. Ultimately, the Hornets scored in overtime behind the blocking of their offensive line, springing their running back for a big gain. The Hornets then punched in a short yardage touchdown to take the lead.
The Raiders will take on another region opponent next Friday in Raider Valley when they play the Cherokee Warriors.
