In Murfreesboro, the Raiders battled back after a sloppy first half.

“We had a very poor first half on both sides of the ball … poor execution and poor fundamentals,” said head coach Mike Walker. “After halftime, they decided to play the way they are capable of playing and they eliminated those mistakes. A victory was the result of that.”

Moore County, which fell behind 8-0 early in the game and trailed 14-8 in the fourth quarter, needed a touchdown and a two-point conversion in the final 3 minutes to pull out a win.

Coy Cashion scored the Raiders’ first touchdown and added the two-point conversion.

With the Raiders trailing 14-8, Julius Dixon scored to tie the game at 14-all. Cashion added another two-point conversion to give Moore County its first lead.

“They’re a good football team with a lot of good skills players,” said Walker. “We will have to play four strong quarters instead of just two if we’re going to beat them.”
