Harding’s Keemari Murry got the Raiders on the board first after breaking free for an 80 yard touchdown run on the team’s second possession of the game.

But, Howland, after falling behind early, scored 10 unanswered points to take a 10-7 lead in the first half.

Howland would answer with a field goal late in the first quarter, but it was the Tigers defense that gave them a lift.

Victor Williams intercepted a Harding pass and took it back 45 yards for the score, giving Howland its first lead on the game, 10-7.

But, it was the Raiders who would pull ahead for good in the second half and give them bragging rights over their rivals.
