Moose Jaw Express.com - - Sports -

The York­ton Raiders just keep on rolling as they look to de­fend their Moose Jaw High School Foot­ball League ti­tle from last sea­son.

The Raiders racked up 540 yards to­tal of­fence and built a 42-0 lead by half­time on their way to a 61-0 vic­tory over the Pea­cock Tor­na­does in York­ton on Satur­day.

The vic­tory was atyp­i­cal for the Raiders this sea­son, as in­stead of do­ing all the dam­age they could through the air, it was their ground at­tack that led the as­sault this time around. Quar­ter­back Jordin Rus­nack had six car­ries for 91 yards and four touch­downs while Dy­lan Le­pow­ick ran 11 times for 119 yards as part of a rush­ing game that racked up 322 yards on 26 car­ries.

That’s not to say the York­ton Air Force wasn’t in play – Rus­nack was 12-for-18 pass­ing for 218 yards with touch­down passes to Car­son Svein­bjorn­son and Tyler Harasyauk. Harasyauk fin­ished the game with five catches for 108 yards, Svein­bjorn­son five catches for 72 yards.

Gar­ion Miller and Fay­den Gramyk also had rush­ing touch­downs for York­ton.

The Tor­na­does were led by Kayde Shymko, with eight car­ries for 64 yards while quar­ter­back Dal­las Lis­ter had 17 car­ries for 21 yards and was also five-for-six pass­ing for 70 yards.

Pea­cock to­taled 85 yards rush­ing on 25 car­ries and 155 yards of to­tal of­fence. York­ton im­proved to 4-0 and in­creased their point dif­fer­en­tial on the sea­son to 214 for, 24 against. They’re back in ac­tion Oct. 4 when they travel to Swift Cur­rent. Pea­cock fell to 1-3 and next face Wey­burn in Wey­burn on Oct. 4.
