The undefeated, undisputed state champions from Portland tried to make it 7-0 for coach John Novarra tonight at Stockbridge.
And this one was all Raiders, all the time. Austin Brandt stepped up, and he played the lottery. A pick six, ladies and gentlemen, 14-0 Portland.
But Austin was not done. Later, Clay Morris slang it to Brandt, and he took it to the house again. Three touchdown passes for Morris in the game.
Portland dropped 34 points in the first quarter, on their way to a 47-16 win. And that sealed an outright CAAC White title for the Raiders - their first since 2009.
