Sorry we didn't get week 2 game update, but the Raiders came away with a 68-28 victory over Fulda. On to week 3 and a match up with the #6 ranked team in the state, Edgerton/Ellsworth Flying Dutchmen. It was a great game with the lead changing hands 5 times before the Raiders were able to make a stand on a 2 point conversion with 1:03 left in the game to preserve the lead. Recovery of the onside kick and a couple of kneel down and the Raiders are 3-0. For the game Dalton had 298 yards passing with 2 tds and 57 yards rushing (lost 27 yards on 1 sack and 3 kneel downs) and 1 rushing td.
This Friday we have RIVALRY week as we head to Cleveland to face the Clippers. All of the Elliott Boyz will be in attendance as Tabor make the trip south and Tanner is making the long drive north.

Darin and Tanner had a great (LONG) drive home from Boston but brought home LIVE Lobster and we had a sea food boil. Grandpa and Grandma King joined us for a hot humid meal on the deck. But it was so good!
