Raiders blast Tinora to take sole possession of GMC lead

By JIM LANGHAM

HAVILAND – Coming into Friday night’s football game with Tinora, Wayne Trace head coach Bill Speller had more than one thing in mind with a win over Tinora: sole possession of first place in the GMC and racking up points toward a post-season appearance.

Both were well on their way to being accomplished by halftime as the Raiders came out of the gate and racked up a 28-7 lead by the halfway point. In the end, Wayne Trace accomplished an impressive 48-35 victory against the highly-regarded Rams.

The Raiders struck early, tallying two touchdowns before the halfway mark of the first quarter. As has been the case all year, much of the firepower came from quarterback Colby Speice who completed 22 of 35 passes for 297 yards and four touchdowns. Speice also led the team in rushing, chalking up 63 yards in 15 carries for an additional two TD’s.
