Rider Blows Away Lubbock Coronado 58-7

Rider started a little slow Thursday night against Lubbock Coronado, but the Mustangs stayed slow the whole night, letting the Raiders run away with a 58-7 win at Memorial Stadium.

The Raiders put the ball on the ground several times in the first quarter, losing two fumbles in the game, but Coronado made far more mistakes, especially in the special teams game.

After a beautiful punt by Rider's Cal Johnson was fielded inside the Coronado 5-yard line, then backed up to the 2 by a penalty, Rider held Coronado to 3-and-out, then the snap went over the punter's head and out of the end zone for a safety.

Rider then marched down and scored a touchdown on a 13-yard pass from J.T. Barrett to Brandon Williams, and Barrett ran in a two-point conversion to make it 10-0 Raiders late in the first quarter.

Just 2:03 of game time later, Rider was on the board again, on a 33-yard run by Dominic Thrasher that made it 17-0.

Rider scored twice more before the half.

First, with Rider on the 10-yard line, Barrett passed to John Hatch out of the single wing to make it 24-0 with 2:36 to play.

Then another Coronado miscue gave Rider another chance. Another snap went over the head of the Mustang punter, which he fell on at the one instead of letting it go into the end zone for another safety.

Rider took over at the 2-yard line, and two plays later Anthony Wagner scored out of the single wing to make it 31-0 Rider, which is the lead they took into the half.

Rider (3-1) will open District 4-4A play next Friday night at Memorial Stadium against Little Elm, while Coronado (0-4) will open District 2-5A against Abilene Cooper, who also fell to Rider in Zero Week.
