September 18th, the North Forsyth Raiders faced their archrivals, the South Forsyth Eagles. With South coming to Raider Valley, Raiders had the home-field advantage. The Raider student section showed a Hawaiian theme for the event, while the South Eagles sported a country-like theme.

 

“This game is really exciting for us. It’s one of the biggest games we are going to have throughout this season. We have been preparing all week. We are excited for the competition,” said junior Bradley Thomas.

 

As the game proceeded in the first quarter, the Raider football team held the line for eight minutes. South took the lead with a pass to their wide receiver, resulting in a touchdown. The score became 7-0. Soon after that, South scored once again with a sweep through the corner.

 

As the second quarter started, the Raiders tried to stay strong. Junior running back Simon Holcomb ran for 56 yards; however, the Eagles ended up scoring again. When all was lost, and there was a 21 point score difference, Raider sophomore Arthur Boyzo kicked a field goal.  Final score was 31-3.

 

Since then, the Raiders played West Forsyth and lost 49-17.
