The Huntley High School’s varsity football team, the Red Raiders, played their last home game of the season last night against Crystal Lake South. The Raiders won, 36-13.

With 5 minutes and 26 seconds left in the first quarter, Eric Mooney scored the first touchdown of the game.

“It was a great play; he’s very fast,” said freshman football player, Charlie Ahmer.

By the end of the first quarter, CLS had scored a touchdown, putting the score at 8-7.

Tim Ryan started off the second quarter with a 30 yard rush on a fake punt, but three flags were thrown, forcing the Raiders to punt again.

Anthony Binetti scored the second touchdown for the Raiders with 7:20 in the second quarter, putting the score at 15-7.

Later in the second quarter, Casey Haayer had a 20-yard-run for the Raiders, putting them on the CLS 40-yard-line.

At 4:18 in the second quarter, Mooney scores a 23-yard touchdown, the score 22-7.

Third quarter is marked with two touchdowns by the Raiders in a matter of 10 minutes. Haayer with the first touchdown, and Alec Coss with a 25-yard touchdown to wrap up the third quarter.

An uneventful fourth quarter ends with a touchdown for CLS, making the final score, 36-13.

According to Brad Aney, defensive line coach, the team’s record was 6 and 0 before this game, their “new” record 7-0.

The team’s conference record is 4-0, which includes the Hampshire, Cary-Grove, Jacobs, and Crystal Lake South games.

“Our goal going into the South game is to win conference. If we beat South, the chances of us winning conference are very good,” said coach Aney, the Thursday before the game.

The Red Raiders play again on Saturday, Oct. 17, at McHenry. The theme for the game is a Neon Out.
