FOOTBALL - Turnovers get Raiders on a roll en route to a big win over Columbia River champs
The Reynolds Raiders threatened to break the scoreboard at Mt. Hood Community College before slowing a bit in the second half for a 58-20 win over The Dalles-Wahtonka.
Known for it's prolific offense, the Raiders got their spark from the other side of the ball on Friday when linebacker Bo Jones made three tackles, recovered a fumble, intercepted two passes and returned one 44 yards for a touchdown all before the first-quarter horn sounded.
The Raiders finished the quarter with Elijah Sims hauling in a 69-yard scoring pass from Josh Schleining and Demontrial Spinks returning a kickoff 77 yards for another score.
Reynolds went into halftime carrying a 48-13 lead.
