Raiders fall in Arizona

The Central Lakes College Raiders football team lost to Glendale Community College, 23-13, in the Valley of the Sun Bowl on Sat., Dec. 4 in Arizona. The 2010 CLC season record ends at 10-2 for the Minnesota College Athletic Conference runner-up. It was the 12th bowl victory for the Gauchos (8-3), on whose field the game was played. Behind a big game from an unlikely source and several penalties and turnovers that went its way, No. 19 Glendale rallied to defeat No. 15 CLC, which led, 13-10 early in the second half. GCC receiver Andrew Castaneda caught seven Kevin Yost passes for 142 yards and was named Glendale’s Player of the Game. QB Dominique Corder was CLC’s Player of the Game. Yost completed 21 of 37 attempts for 268 yards and threw two TD passes. After Castaneda’s first touchdown, CLC’s Stoney Burns took the ensuing kick 84 yards into the end zone, but the extra point failed. Corder (14 carries for 60 yards, 12 for 25 passing for 210 yards) rallied the Raiders with a nine-play, 50-yard drive, aided by a roughing-the-passer penalty and capped by his 9-yard touchdown pass to a sprawling Ryan Tri in the end zone. That put CLC ahead 13-10 with 11:30 left in the third. With Frank Mays (three sacks) bolstering the defense and chasing Yost much of the afternoon, the momentum appeared to shift, especially when CLC’s Matt Spoden intercepted a Yost pass on the ensuing drive for a CLC first down at the GCC 24. But CLC failed to capitalize on the golden opportunity when Corder was dropped for a 17-yard loss. Corder’s 40-yard scramble helped CLC get to the Glendale 11 on its next possession, but Erickson couldn’t handle Corder’s pass at the goal line on fourth down, giving GCC the ball back. CLC had one last chance. Corder, rolling to his right, found Ryan Fay (two catches, 100 yards) open deep and Fay carried it to the GCC 2 before fumbling it away with just more than two minutes to play.
