  • Raiders outshoot Tell City

    "They're just disciplined and fast," he added. "They move to the ball. And when they go to block, they're aggressive. They're a typical Bob Clayton coached team."

  • South Decatur offense hard for Perry Central to predict

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central's defense plans to be ready for anything when the Commodores host South Decatur Saturday at 4 p.m.

    That was also the case in the Cougars' first game last year. But then against Perry Central they threw the ball 45 times, completing 19 of them for 329 yards. Perry Central did intercept five, though.
