Benton Academy lost a tough one on the road Friday as Winona Christian came back for a 32-26 win.
Raiders quarterback JB Middleton had another strong outing 151 rushing yards with two touchdowns and 81 passing yards, including a touchdown pass to wide receiver Ben Boggan.
Running back Caden Stevens rushed for 165 yards and a touchdown.
The Raiders held a 20-14 lead at halftime, but Winona was able to make some big plays in the second half.
“We made some costly mistakes,” said Raiders head coach Kenny Burton.
Caden Alexander led the Raiders defense with eight tackles.
Rye Yeates had six tackles for the Raiders.
This week the Raiders are back on the road headed to Sylva Bay in Bay Springs.
Sylva Bay is hungry for a win after an 0-4 start to the season. Last week the Saints lost 32-8 to Winston Academy.
“Their record really doesn’t mean anything,” Burton said. “They’re a bigger school, and they’re going to be tough.”
