Raiders roll on

Richard sparks Muck Bowl win over Blue Devils

South Florida Sun-Sentinel Palm Beach (Sunday) - - SPORTS - By Mike May Correspondent

PAHOKEE — Glades Cen­tral quar­ter­back Dav­ius Richard com­pleted 21 passes for 325 yards and three touch­downs to lead the vis­it­ing Raiders to a 22-12 vic­tory on Satur­day night against the Pahokee Blue Devils in the annual Muck Bowl.

Glades C e n t r a l ’s Jymetre Hester also had a big game as he caught five passes for 110 yards and a touch­down and added 40 yards rush­ing.

It was a game of two halves where Pahokee (5-5) won the se­cond half, b u t G l a d e s C e n t ra l ’s 22-point se­cond quar­ter was the dif­fer­ence.

“The ul­ti­mate goal is to win a state cham­pi­onship, but the big goal is to win the Muck Bowl,” said Glades Cen­tral coach Jesse Hester, who is a com­bined 6-2 in eight Muck Bowls as a player and a coach.

After a score­less first quar­ter, the Raiders (7-3) struck first. On their third drive of the game, the Raiders scored with 10:27 left in the first half when Richard con­nected with O d i e u Hi l a i re o n a n 18-yard touch­down pass, cap­ping a s i x- p l a y, 60-yard drive. The PAT at­tempt was blocked.

The game’s most ex­cit­ing play took place on the next play when Pahokee’s Leroy Love re­turned the kick­off 70 yards to the Raiders’ 25 yard line.

Three plays later, Pahokee quar­ter­back Jaeze Tracy found La­monte Gra­ham stand­ing at the 10-yard line. Gra­ham then zig-zagged his way to the end zone. Pahokee’s PAT at­tempt was blocked.

On the Raiders’ next two drives, they scored on a pair of 15 -yard TD passes – to Hester at the 6:05 mark and to Javonte Wil­liams with 1:52 left in the first half.

With 32.7 sec­onds left in the first half, Glades Cen­tral’s Kourt­ney Ware in­ter­cepted a Pahokee pass and was tack­led at the Pahokee 30. Six plays later, Glades Cen­tral’s Jose Gar­cia con­verted a 22-yard field goal on the fi­nal play of the first half. Glades Cen­tral led 22-6 at half­time.

Pahokee had a chance to cut into the lead late in the third quar­ter when LaVon­ski Wil­liams scored on a 6-yard run, but it was nul­li­fied by a chop block. Pahokee even­tu­ally turned the ball over on downs.

With 10:13 left in the game, Pahokee put a dent in their 16-point deficit when Wil­liams scored a 6-yard TD run, but a scuf­fle be­tween Wil­liams and Glades Cen­tral’s Ernest Jack­son led to both play­ers be­ing ejected.

Pahokee was un­able to cut into the Raiders’ lead any fur­ther.
