Raiders roll past Rockets

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

The plan worked. Perhaps anticipating the Shenandoah rush, the Broad Ripple center snapped it over Shittu’s head on consecutive possessions. The fumbles were both recovered by the Raiders. While the first resulted in nothing more than a Shenandoah fumble, the second concluded in a 3-yard touchdown run by Lane Young, who led all rushers with 158 yards and two touchdowns.

With 11:56 remaining in the game, the Raiders led 20-0. From there, it was defensive stop after defensive stop, touchdown after touchdown.

Trevor Conner picked off Shittu, then connected with Raiders QB Adam Lovan on an 80-yard pass play for a touchdown. A blown punt play set up Young for a 6-yard touchdown, raising the Raiders’ lead to 33-0. Myers accounted for Shenandoah’s final two TDs, one on a 9-yard run and the other on a recovered fumble after another bad Broad Ripple snap. The Raiders added a safety on the final play of the game for good measure.

In all, the Rockets usually potent offense gained just 122 yards and got its only score on Shittu’s kickoff return. On the other hand, the Raiders amassed 376 yards on the ground and 87 through the air.

“I think that the kids executed. And our lineman did an outstanding job,” Widner said. “Our backs, they’re pretty good backs, and I feel like when they run the ball and take care of the ball they’re a pretty good group as well. And it’s just a matter of execution and doing things right.”

Shenandoah will host Knightstown next week. The Raiders defeated the Panthers 62-0 on Sept. 27.
