Football team to 9-0

The Central Lakes College Raiders finished their conference regular-season schedule unbeaten through nine games in preparation for the Oct. 30 state semi-final showdown. Stoney Burns (pictured) scored two touchdowns and Dominique Corder passed for three scores in a 33-13 win over Ridgewater at Willmar on Oct. 23. Burns scored the Raiders’ first two TDs, with an 85-yard kickoff return and 63-yard punt return. He also recorded an interception and had another nullified by penalty. Corder, who passed for 206 yards, completed 12 of 20 attempts. He threw two TD passes to Barret Powell and one to Tyler Erickson. It’s only the second time in school history that the football team has finished unbeaten in the regular season. The victory gave CLC, ranked 10th in the national Juco poll as of Oct. 26, the Southern Division championship and kept hope alive for defense of the state championship claimed a year ago in the upset of always-tough (and 16th-ranked) Rochester, whom CLC defeated 28-21, on Sept. 25 in Brainerd. CLC hosts Northland at 1 p.m. Sat., Oct. 30 for the right to add the 2010 MCAC prize to the expanding CLC athletic trophy case. In Week 2’s second game, CLC escaped at Thief River Falls with a 7-0 win over Northland, which lost to Mesabi Range, 19-13, to finish second in the Northern Division regular season. The anticipated CLC-Rochester rematch would be played on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Husky Stadium on the campus of St. Cloud State University at 1 p.m.
