The River City Raiders return to the Family Arena this Saturday night and look to notch its third straight win.
River City thumped the Savannah Coastal Outlaws 67-18 at home two Saturdays ago where the Raiders raced out to a 43-0 first-half lead en route to back-to-back victories and sole possession of third place in the six-team APF.
Quarterback Mike Tindall had a stellar performance in his APF starting debut, hitting 11-of-12 passes for 220 yards and six touchdowns. Running back Keenan Miller had three end zone romps and receivers Johnnie King III and Chris Headd each had a pair of six-point snares in the 49-point rout.
Receivers DeJuan Bolden, Gary Johnson and DeAndre Jackson were also focal points of the Raiders offense with a touchdown snared individually while kicker James Neal was perfect in PATs (7-7).
Defensively, River City was propelled by the lock down work of Keenan Mace, Bernard Quinn, Darrivs Ford, Rodarius Whittier, Bryan Lowery, Deon Morris, Theo Alexander and others.
Saturday’s opponent, Myrtle Beach, competes in APF-sanctioned action for the first time this season. In late-April, the Sharks suffered a 75-34 exhibition setback to the Vermont Bucks, a representative of the Can-Am Indoor Football League (CAIFL).
The stakes are different for both this weekend and a Raiders’ home victory adds much-needed momentum for the locals heading into the backstretch of the APF regular season.
