AHSAA 3A Region 7 Game
Not sure which was bumpier? The road to Winfield or the game! Certainly the ride home was! Good Hope was penalty ridden throughout this contest and never overcame it.
The Raiders used up 5:06 of the first quarter before Sebastien Fendley found Austin Crumbley for a 21 yard touchdown. The PAT by Chris Covarrubias was good.
Things were looking good when the Raiders stopped the Pirates on fourth and one to get the ball back. The Raiders were forced to punt however and Winfield ended up with the ball on our 20 yard line as the first frame ended.
Xavier Chaney scored for Winfield on a 3 yard run. Jacob Elkins PAT was good.
After a Good Hope punt the Pirates turned it over again on downs but the Raiders ended up punting again.
This time Winfield got a huge run from speedster Xavier Chaney who scampered 92 yards for the score. Jacob Elkins PAT was good.
With the score Good Hope 7 Winfield 14, the Raiders fumbled to give the Pirates the ball on our 14. Winfiled had a 2 yard run and the PAT was good.
Good Hope fumbled on the next drive as well but forced a punt with 32.2 seconds left in the first half. A fumble would give the Pirate the opportunity for a 32 yard field goal by Jacob Elkins.
Halftime would find Good Hope down 7-24.
After an arousing performance by the Good Hope Raider Marching Band and Winfield's homecoming festivities, the game resumed.
Things didn't fare much better for the Raiders in the second half.
Winfield had the ball to start and Dawson Dean found Mason Osborn for the score. PAT was good.
Sebastien Fendley scrambled and found Jarod McClure for a 34 yard touchdown pass. The PAT by Chris Covarrubias was good.
The Raiders forced the Pirate to punt on their next drive but another Good Hope fumble would be recovered by Winfield.
That proved to be costly mistake as the Pirates scored on another Dean to Osborn pass. PAT was good.
Good Hope got the ball back with 2:39 left in the 3rd but ended up punting.
The Raiders forced a punt but ended up turning it over on downs on the next drive.
Good Hope forced another punt nad this time the Raiders scored as Fendley found Crumbley again. Fendley threw to McClure for a 2 point conversion. That would be the Raiders last score.
Winfield found the end zone one more time on a 10 yard run by Xavier McCollum. PAT was good.
Final score Good Hope 22 Winfield 45.
The Raiders drop to 4th place in the region but are in the playoffs. Good Hope will travel to #3 Saks week after next.
This game had more penalties than any contest this writer has ever witnessed. Don't have a total of yard penalized for Good Hope but estimate that to be over 100 yards.
We love our Raiders and will follow them no matter what! Good Hope is still #1 in our book!
