Raiders stifle Longview, Cruise into Region Final (Denton RC)

By Steve Gamel Contributing Writer

MESQUITE — One of Ryan’s rallying cries this season has been “We don’t want easy.” Granted, the Raiders have certainly made things look easy since September, but against Longview in Saturday’s Class 5A Division I Region II semifinal, they expected a much different game.

Longview gave it to them with a gritty and physical matchup befitting of a playoff game, and Ryan didn’t flinch.

Memphis signee Seth Henigan threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns and Texas signee Ja’Tavion Sanders caught seven passes for 115 yards while adding a rushing and receiving touchdown as Ryan blew open a six-point game at halftime to gut out a 27-9 win at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.
