Raiders Top Rival Hornets, claim playoff berth

It was a tale of two halves Friday in Moore County’s regular season finale at rival Huntland.

In the first half three interceptions (two by Connor Partin, one from Keller Morey) and a turnover on downs stalled promising Raider drives and left Moore County up just 7-3 at the half.

In the second half the Raiders traded turnovers for touchdowns and topped their rival 34-10 to secure a spot in the postseason for the second consecutive season.

Sophomore Swiss Army knife Dawson White, who on any given night does a little of it all in all three phases for the Raiders, ran for three scores on the night to earn Riddle Agency Player of the Game honors. Connor Partin who was benched in the first quarter after tossing two interceptions rallied in the second to throw two touchdown passes that helped Moore County seize control of the game.

After falling behind 3-0 midway through the second quarter on a 32 yard by Huntland’s Grant Morris the Raiders responded with 21 unanswered and in all outscored the hornets 34-7 from that point to take much of the drama, aside from your usual chippiness between foes, out of this annual end of the year rivalry.

The victory, Moore County’s third straight in the series improved them to 4-6 overall and 3-3 in Region 5-1A which by virtue of their 27-12 win over Collinwood in week 9, gives Moore County the 4th and final playoff spot from the region.

Moore County will hit the road to battle the 10-0 McKenzie Tigers, the champions of Region 6-1A, in the first round of the 1-A Playoffs next Friday night at 7:00.
