Running back Pat Brown scores three touchdowns
Reynolds scored twice in the fourth quarter to overcome a 16-14 second half deficit against South Salem on Friday night.
The Raiders moved in front when Chris O'Day took a short screen pass and broke loose for a 56-yard gain. That set up teammate Pat Brown for a 2-yard plunge into the end zone and a 21-16 lead.
Brown added another touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to seal the victory.
The Raiders showed their dominance early, moving in front on the final play of the first quarter when Brown hauled in a 6-yard pass from quarterback Bo Bergstrom.
After the Saxons missed a field goal attempt, the Raiders marched down the field, gaining a first down on every play until they reached the 1-yard line. On the next play, O'Day ran in for a touchdown, and the Raiders increased the lead to 14-0.
