This past Saturday things change in a moments notice. The players arrived to be informed that the game was still on but Cardinal Ritter would be hosting. A few phone calls later and a big crowd stayed on hand through the rain soaked day to watch the Raiders go against Lutheran. A one point loss the night before with the varsity allowed for some extra motivation. The offense led by Jarek Mallatestnic went to work with the help of Kendall Dalverny. Jarek was able to complete several passes to Christian Roberts, Reid Swails, Donavan Morris and Nemo Jones while he also helped spark the running game as well.
The defense stood strong through out the morning as Ethan Johnson and Trey Stubbs both came up with picks in the first half. Marlon Anderson, Gabe Rodriquez and Alec Frazee led the defense in tackles. As the second half began and a few guys rotated in and the Saints put together a drive, but eventually were held to a defensive stand inside our own 10 yard line. The Raiders prevailed and finished the morning with a 26 – 14 VICTORY. Thank you to all of the fans who came out to support our student athletes. WE ARE THE RITTER RAIDERS and PROUD OF IT!
