Osirus Washington: Raiders display pure dominance over Vermillion

fullsizerender-4The Raiders football team showed pure dominance last Saturday over conference foe Vermillion Community College. They came out on top winning 43-18, and keeping their winning streak with an undefeated season 9-0.

Heading into the conference semis, the Raiders are one game away from the state championship and two wins away from a national playoff appearance.

The 25-point blowout win last Saturday was geared by a big day on the field. The Raiders controlled the clock all afternoon with a tough and aggressive mind on offense.

As a team, the Raiders rushed the ball 49 times for 320 yards. The Vermillion defense looked fatigued going against our offensive line down after down. The Raiders were determined. Extremely determined.

Running back Teddy Sherva had a big day on the ground. He rushed 26 times for 156 yards. Although he didn’t run one in for a score, his backup Greg Lewis was able to run one in for the Raiders on 10 carries for 75 yards.

The Raiders defense also put on a show. Caleb Glennon recorded all four of the CLC interceptions and had a big return for 43 yards on one of them. The defense combined for eight sacks. They pressured the Vermillion quarterbacks so much that the Ironmen needed to use multiple quarterbacks. Both took hits and both threw interceptions. Freshman starting linebacker Adrian Jackson had five tackles on Saturday.

“I felt really confident going into Saturday’s game,” he said. “Our defense is rolling right now. Football is a game of momentum and we need to build on that.”

The win versus Vermillion was a big one, but nothing to get too excited about. They beat Vermillion by 23 points and scored nearly 60 points just two weeks prior to blowing them out again. The big test will be this Saturday, Oct. 29 versus Ridgewater Community College. Ridgewater was the Raiders’ toughest game this season. In week two, Central Lakes beat Ridgewater 21-12.

According to Jackson, “We’re a different team going into week ten than we were in week two. It will definitely be a game to remember.”

The rematch will take place Saturday at CLC at 1:30 p.m.
