Cedar Ridge suffered a heartbreaking 42-32 loss at the hands of the Stony Point Tigers on Friday, Sept. 27 at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex. The game marked Stony Point’s first ever win against Cedar Ridge.

Stony Point running back Kendall Thomas (12) spoiled the Raiders’ homecoming game with a monster performance, finishing with 271 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Stony Point finished with over 500 yards of offense and 372 rushing yards.

Both teams’ offenses had fast starts, as they both totaled seven touchdowns in the first half, the last of which came on an impressive 21-yard touchdown catch by Cedar Ridge running back Deuce Vaughn (12). Vaughn, a Kansas State commit, finished with 126 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

“Senior year came by fast, and homecoming is always a special event,” Cedar Ridge quarterback Jalen Brown (12) said. “It sucks that we couldn’t pull off the win for the fans, but still, we’ve got to grind to be 7-3 going into the playoffs.”

The Raiders retook the lead early in the fourth quarter after an 8-yard touchdown reception by DJ Rountree (11). The Tigers responded with a quick 76-yard touchdown drive and increased their lead after recovering a Cedar Ridge fumble at the Raiders’ 1-yard line, with Thomas scoring his fourth touchdown on the next play.

After a bye week next week, the Raiders look to bounce back against a tough Hendrickson team on Thursday, Oct. 10.

“We’re not taking the bye week for granted,” Brown said. “We need to get this win and get back on track.”
