East Carter kept their winning streak going on the road last week, with a 70-34 win over the Betsy Layne Bobcats. The Raiders beat the Bobcats with a running game, rushing for a total of 540 yards and allowing Betsy Layne to rush for only 49 yards. Betsy Layne out passed the Raiders, with East Carter allowing the Bobcats to pass for 359 yards to their 17 yards, but those passing yards weren’t enough to make a difference in a game dominated by the Raiders.
The 17 yards that the Raiders did complete a pass for, from Kanyon Kozee, resulted in a successful touchdown. Brodey Stamper caught that touchdown pass for the Raiders.
Jacob Underwood was the Raiders’ standout, scoring five touchdowns for the team and rushing for a total of 293 yards on 16 attempts.
Charlie Terry scored one touchdown, and rushed 175 yards over 12 attempts. Kanyon Kozee scored two more touchdowns for the Raiders, rushing a total of two yards on five attempts.
Isaac Boggs scored yet another touchdown for the Raiders, on a kickoff return.
The Raiders were good on six of their extra point attempts from Logan Cales, and Stamper ran in two 2-point conversions for the team.
