REL Red Raiders Face Chaminade Madonna

Ask any Texan and the answer seems simple enough: Who plays better football in the South?
In a state where football is king, it seems only fitting to test Texas's best against another state.
That was exactly the case Saturday night when Robert E. Lee went head to head with Hollywood, Florida's Chaminade Madonna. It was game that came down to the wire.
When it seemed like the rain would put a damper on the interstate battle, the lighting flashes stopped and after a 2 hour a delay, game on. But, this game was as much of a battle between Texas and Florida as it was between the running backs, Red Raiders Jason Williams up against Chaminade Madonna's Willie Floyd.
But it was Williams who jumped to the early advantage. Taking the ball from Preston Hill for a first quarter touchdown.
In the second quarter, Chaminade Madonna's Mark Guandolo with the fake, taking it in for the touchdown. Tie game.
The Red Raiders would take the lead again, Preston Hill connecting with Jason Williams, 14 to 7, Red Raiders leading at the half.
In the second half things got really interesting. The two teams would match scores. Quarterback Mark Guandolo to David Gongora for the touchdown.
Still in the third the defending state champs would not be out done. Jason Williams battled his way for a 58 a yard touchdown run. 21 to 14.
But in the fourth Chaminade Madonna would answer. Willie Floyd scored on a 34 yard run, 21 to 21.
With the clock ticking in the fourth, Chaminade Madonna would take the lead on another Willie Floyd touchdown. 28 to 21.
With 7:31 left in the fourth, Lee ball, Preston Hill to Jason Williams, his third touchdown of the night. Tie game.
With just under four minutes left in the game, Lee would get the ball back on Chaminade Madonna's 26 yard punt. Preston Hill and Jason Williams moving the ball down the field.
Then with 17 seconds left, Hill's sneak scored the touchdown, put Lee on top, 38 to 24 your final score.
"They've got some great players, as good as I've seen in a long time," said Lee head coach Mike Owens. "Especially on the offense. They are physical no doubt about it. I think it's really going to help us. It really is. I think it's going to help us down the road."
Of his three TD performance, Jason Williams said, "I run hard in practice and come out here and do the same thing."
"Great offensive battle with both teams going back and forth," said Chaminade Madonna head coach Mark Guandolo, Sr. "The team with the ball at the end seemed to win. Great experience, very disappointing. You'd like to come out with a win. But, hopefully we'll learn from this and grow from it."
This was the first of Lee's, two interstate games. The Red Raiders go against the Ohio State champs, Colerain on September 9th.

    Don't shoot the messenger, argue with Jason Stark. The ESPN reporter released a reason for each MLB team on Tuesday explaining why they won't win the World Series. You might argue with Stark, but his point is pretty valid when it comes to the Rangers.
