Raiders engineer upset of top-ranked Cobblers

By  | 

The Cobbler-Raider rivalry has had some exceptional chapters over the years, but this year's boys' version took on quite a bit more significance as the Cobblers came into tonight's match-up as the number one ranked team in the state. The Raiders? Number two.
In the words of U-F-C referee Mike McCarthy: Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Let's get it on!
----------
1st quarter of action, Cobblers on the move early, Dylan Hay strokes the three and the Cobblers are up four.
---------
Later, more from Central, Kailleb Walton-Blanden to Camden Talley down low for the two.
---------
Stevens counters, Cooper Bowman to Dawson Paulsen for the three. And he's pumped.
---------
Raiders heating up, Hay gets stripped, Josh Schumacher takes it the distance but the heads up late feed to Bowman for the finish underneath.
--------
Stevens continuing to press, Paulsen misses, but check this out, Trey Eberlein with the gorgeous behind-the-back kick out to Connor King for the big three!
-------
Cobblers try to pick it back up, Walton-Blanden over to Hay who hits the pull-up jumper.
----------
But the Raiders would not be denied, King drives, hangs and hits the double-clutch shot.
Stevens takes down their top-ranked cross-town rivals. Final Score 57 to 53.
