Raymond notched its second straight shutout after a 59-0 thumping of visiting Ocosta Friday before a huge home crowd. The Seagulls performed surgery on the Wildcats’ defense with 420 yards rushing. Alex Sida led the assault with 134 ground yards and 3 scores and Darol Ratsavongsy rushed for 100 yards and 2 TDs.

Elliott Murdock added another 68 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns and quarterback Rayce Newman punched out 48 yards and a 15-yard TD scamper.

So delighted the hometown fans with a 65-yard punt return for a score.

Grant Camenzind racked up 6 tackles and Michael McFadden had 4 tackles for the Seagulls.

With the win RHS improved to 3-1 while Ocosta dropped to 1-3 on the season.

Raymond heads to North Beach (3-0) Friday while Ocosta hosts South Bend.

Adna 46, Indians 6

Adna scored the final 46 points to devastate South Bend 46-6 Friday night at Millam Field. Dennis Johnson rushed for 146 yards on 15 carries and an 8-yard touchdown run for the Indians.

The Tribe put together a nice drive to start the game – going 73 on 10 plays.

“We got off to a good start offensively, scoring on our first series on an 8-yard run by Dennis Johnson,” SBHS Head Football Coach Tom Sanchez told the Herald. “We hung in there for a while, but we had a fumble on our own 20 that set up a touchdown for them, and they ran the second half kickoff back for a score; both of those plays hurt.”

“Marcus Overstake and Mitch Edwards both played well on defense, and our young kids are getting some valuable experience,” Sanchez added. “We will get better because of it.”

Edwards was in on 15 total tackles and Overstake had 10 total tackles.

South Bend slipped to 0-3 on the season heading into Friday’s road game at Ocosta. It was the first win for the Pirates, now 1-3.
