Raiders lose in final seconds 16-21

In the East Paulding Raiders first game of the season, Upson-Lee Knights took the lead on their first drive. The Raiders ended the half with a 3 point lead. Elohim Hull intercepted allowing the Raiders to capitalize for their first TD with a 45-yard pass to Cole Brown in the 1st quarter and a field goal in the second.
East made their final TD in the 3rd quarter after the Knights fumbled on the 11-yard line and recovered by the Raiders. Tyrell Robinson drove in a TD but the Raider’s missed the extra point.
The 4th quarter started with a hard hit to the Raider QB causing a fumble allowing the Knights to score their 2nd TD. With a 2 point lead, the Raiders botched a punt from the 45-yard line with 32 seconds left. The Knights were able to recover on the East 40 yard line. On the next play, a pass interference penalty puts the Knights on the 25-yard line. Then came an offside call against the Raider’s putting the play 1st and 5 on the 20 with 11 seconds. An end zone pass to the Knights #44 gives them the lead with only 4 seconds left on the clock leaving no time for the Raider’s to score again.
East will play North next week at North.
