Raiders roll over visiting Elecs

Raiders score early and often
YORKTON - It was a football game that was over before it had barely started, at least for the visitors.

The host Yorkton Regional High School Gridders scored on two early possessions to put the visiting Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs on an uphill climb.

It proved to be a climb where the Elecs just couldn’t manage to find their footing.

The Raiders led 32-6 at the half the Elecs only touchdown coming after a failed third down and short by the Raiders deep in their own end.

Even then the Elecs had stalled, but were aided by a roughing the passer call which gave then three fresh down first and goal that led to the score.

In the second half the Raiders continued to roll ending the day with a 67-6 win.

The Elecs drop to 0-2 on the season following a season opening shut out to Weyburn. The Raiders are now 1-1 after they too lost their season opener, also to Weyburn.
