Raiders blank Springfield, 69-0

The first U-32 football playoff victory since 2006 wasn’t exactly a close one. The second-seeded Raiders dominated from the opening snap, piling up more than 400 yards of rushing and cruising to a 69-0 shutout of No. 7 Springfield.


  1. What they failed to report is that Springfield was lacking a lot of key players. Cedric Gray, Chris Ficklin, Ben Tubbs, Josh Stebbins and Zack Tubbs were all not on the starting roster. Most out with injury. Senior Josh Hoy got hurt in the 2nd and didn't return. The team was basically Freshman and Sophomores against a bigger and more mature team.
    I'm sure that all the armchair quarterbacks who love to post as anonymous will have a field day with the beating the kids endured. I for one am proud of the kids for at least making it to the playoffs. Don't listen to the losers who like to hide behind their keyboards.

    1. Your name isn't listed....

    2. Congratulations to the Cosmos for giving it their all. Yes, it was a losing effort but the point is they never quit, regardless of how shorthanded they were.

      Please note that my name is listed. I am proud to say I once covered them on the radio. I'm disappointed there is no local broadcasts of their games now but hopefully in the future, that will change.

  2. Thank You Cosmos Dad for pointing this out to those "armchair quarterbacks"! This Cosmos Mom watched a mainly underclassmen team hold their heads high after this game. They knew going in that it was going to be a tough one. It was great practice for next season! Extremely proud of each and every single one of them! From my seat I didn't see much of any giving up on the field when the 3rd and 4th quarters rolled around and many of U32's first string team was still on the field. I want to wish those seniors Good Luck and say that I'm going to miss seeing you all on the field next year but I'm super excited to see what the future holds for this young team!!
