2010 MIDGETS ADVANCE TO BOWL GAME AFTER BEATING RENO TEAM ON SATURDAY & SUNDAY!?!

The weather was terrible.  It was pouring, cold and windy, but that didn't stop the Raiders from recovering a fumble on the Fallon Greenwave's first play.  The Raiders turned the opportunity into an 80 yard touchdown on their first play and the rout was on.  With a few long scoring runs and 2 called back, the Raiders went into halftime with a 26-6 lead.

During halftime the heavy rain & wind was joined by thunder and lightning.  After several flashes, the powers that be decided to call the game for the safety reasons.  It was decided the game would continue the next morning. 

Something about those early games for the Raiders.  The Greenwave came ready to play and scored.  Once that happened, the Raiders realized the game hadn't been won the night before and quickly went to work.  Awake and back on track, the Raiders easily went on to win the Pacific NorthWest Regional Championship game by a score of 38-12.  They will advance to the Best of the West Bowl game that will rotate between here and Los Angeles.
