The Rotan Yellowhammers proved too much for Leuders-Avoca during last Friday nights game, evoking the 45 rule in the fourth quarter with a game-ending score of 64 – 16.

The Yellowhammers were up by six near the end of the first quarter, but a long pass completion by the Raider’s offense and a good PAT brought the score to 6 – 8 with about a minute left on the clock. Rotan would squeeze another touchdown before the end of the quarter, giving the Yellowhammers a lead they would hold onto for the remainder of the game.

Huge defensive plays by Rotan’s Brian Williams, pushing the Raider’s ball carrier deep into their own backfield on two consecutive plays, resulting in major loss in yardage for the Raiders in the second quarter.
