2012 Raptor Football Schedule

January 2, 2012
By Gary Maki of East Ridge Football



The 2012 East Ridge Raptors football schedule will be a virtual mirror image of the 2011 schedule with the exchange of home and away games as the Raptors look to improve upon their 2011 record. 

One big but subtle difference will be the effects of the class and section realignment undertaken by the Minnesota State High School league effective this fall.  With the addition of a new Class AAAAAA consisting of the 32 largest schools in the state, the Raptors find themselves remaining in Class AAAAA, as one of the largest enrollments in the AAAAA.  Of note, six of their seven regular season Suburban East Conference opponents will now be in a AAAAAA come playoff time.  For more information, please see the article on this site.
 

ERHS opens the 2012 season with an unusual Thursday evening highlight game on August 30 as perennial power Cretin Derham Hall rolls in The Nest for a 7:00 PM kick off.  This will be only the second time the Raptors have hosted a season opener.

This 2012 schedule is highlighted with The Nest hosting two huge rival games against District 833 counterparts.  The Woodbury Royals return to The Nest on Friday, September 21, for the first time since arguably the scene of the greatest game in Raptor history as over 6,000 people witnessed the first ever Raptor football game in 2009.  The Raptors seek to return the traveling “Golden Griffin” trophy to its rightful place in the East Ridge trophy case.  This game will be a battle!

Then on Friday, October 12, the Wolfpack of Cottage Grove come to town for the potential 2012 Homecoming game!  The Raptors will defend their perfect 3-0 record against their southern neighbors in the always hostile Nest.

A proposed date for the Class of 2013 Senior Recognition Night will be Friday, October 5 when the Raptors host the Ponies of Stillwater. 

Here is the full 2012 schedule;
