Raiders Ready for Aledo Rematch; Area Round Schedules

WICHITA FALLS, TX - The Rider Raiders are on a roll as they enter the Area Round of the playoffs. After an 8-7-1 start that included a 2-2 start to District 5-5A, they've reeled off 13-straight wins to win the district title and advance to the second round of the playoffs with a 21-7-1 mark.

Now, they will face an Aledo Bearcats team that boasts a similar 21-8 record overall after finishing 11-3 as runners-up to Burleson Centennial in District 8-5A.

This Aledo team also eliminated the Raiders last year in this same round, rallying after Rider took Game 1, 3-0 on a Thursday night to sweep a Saturday doubleheader by 3-0 and 8-2 scores.
