Tonight, Northstar Football News took in the epic battle of Suburban East foes, the East Ridge Raptors vs. the Cretin-Derham Hall Raiders. Our contributor, Nate Wahl provides the game summary for this Suburban East battle.
This game started off as a huge defensive battle, but the Raiders were able to drive the ball down the field and get a 10-yard touchdown from RB Tony Underwood in the 1st quarter. Mid way thru the 2nd quarter, Cretin-Derham Hall QB Preston Thelemann found WR Tyson Schilling for a big 53-yard touchdown to put the Raiders up 14-0 midway thru the 2nd quarter. The Raptors decided to wake up big after that score by CDH with a game changing 66-yard run for a TD from a player I featured in my program profile on East Ridge, RB KJ Moore. East Ridge then struck again when QB Riley Larson drove down the field and pushed in a 1-yard QB sneak to place the game at 14-14 which would follow into halftime. East Ridge brought the momentum into halftime with a chip on their shoulder with back to back touchdowns on the Raiders.
The 3rd quarter continued to be a defensive battle with no scoring from either squad until the 4th quarter. The 4th quarter got started with a big throw
