weekly roundup

The Raider girls soccer team stayed unbeaten this past weekend by beating Aberdeen and Pierre.  The link below gives a great overview of those wins plus other Raider goodies.




Two first half unassisted goals guided Rapid City Stevens to a 4-0 win over Pierre in boys soccer action.  Derek Beaumont dribbled along the end line and scored in the 17th minute, followed by an unassisted goal from teammate Noah Storm in the 37th minute.  Rick Schleusener and Austin Schone added goals in the second half on assists from Brennan Lytle and Beaumont.  The Raiders outshot the Governors 26-5 with a 13-1 edge on shots on goal.   Facing a pesky wind and playing on artificial turf for the first time in three seasons, the Raiders were unable to find the net in a 2-0 setback to Aberdeen Central the following day.  Both teams took 18 shots with the Raiders adjusting to the odd bounces and speed of the ball from the turf conditions, getting off a number of shots late in the contest.  The Raiders are 3-1-1 heading into the first of two season matches with cross-town rival Rapid City Central.
