Disappointing end to a winning season

The Lyman Raiders hosted the Marion-Hurley Cobras on Saturday, November 8 in semi-final action complete with icy fields, blustery winds, and cold temperatures. 

The Raiders won the toss and opted to have Reed Reuman kick-off the first play of the game.  The Cobras held the ball for slightly over three minutes but were forced to turn it over to the Raiders on their own 40 yard line.  Dawson Jandreau made quick work of a 60 yard touchdown with 8:41 on the clock and scored for the extra two to make the score 8-0.

Marion-Hurley fumbled the ball with 7:23 remaining in the first quarter only to have the Raiders come up short on downs and forced to punt.  A high snap over kicker Logan Reuman’s head set the Cobras up on the Raider 22 yard line.  With 4:05 left in the quarter, Marion-Hurley rushed into the end zone on a five yard carry.  The extra two points tied the game and ended the quarter.

Shortly into the second quarter, R. Reuman ran into the end zone on a one yard touchdown but the Raiders failed to convert the extra points.  A fumble by the Raiders on the 55 yard line set the Cobras up for a touchdown pass and extra two points. 

L. Reuman threw a pass into the blustery afternoon winds only to have it intercepted and run back to the five yard line which set up another Marion-Hurley score.  The half time score was 24 -14.

A fumble by the Raiders early in the third quarter set the Cobras up for another six.   Lyman marched the ball 68 yards down field only to be drawn up short of the touchdown on the one yard line.

Marion-Hurley went on to score in the fourth quarter on a two yard run and converted on the two point extra point even after a 5 yard penalty which made the score 38-14 with 10:02 left to play.

Another high snap over quarterback Reuman’s head resulted in an extra two point safety for the Cobras.  Marion-Hurley ran the football in for another touchdown and two point conversion with 4:31 remaining on the play clock. 

With a little over a minute remaining, both teams put in their JV squad.  Marion-Hurley scored on a Raider fumble and converted the extra points. 

“The kids played hard.  They ran into a pretty good team and came up on the short end of the stick, but I’m proud of them.  There is a lot of potential there for next year,” stated Head Coach Mike Kieffer.

Jandreau carried the ball 28 times for 192 yards.  The Cobras held him to only 10 yards in the second half.  The Raiders fought a tough battle but came up short with a final score of 56-14.  The Raiders finish the season with a 10-1 record.
