Steffen Thaden-W1arda-Mi11er-Oppold-Abbas-Borchers The Raiders ranked fifth in conference play this year with a 2-2-3 record. They racked could just up 106 points against 79 by their opponents. Their three tie games as well have been wins by virtue of yards gained and touchdowns called back. The Raiders had six T Ds called back in their eight game season. A classy Jesup team outplayed the Raiders in the season's opener, although not as badly as the 33-13 score indicates. The two touchdowns came by passes from Sietsema to Thaden and Scallon. A penalty nullified a touchdown by Steffen. Ackley with Ackley Steffen and were called and Iowa Falls battled out a non-conference game in a steady rain coming out on the short end of a 7-O score. In this game a T D by a long run by Scallon, either of which could have meant a tie game, back. When Steffen's T D was called back in the last minutes, La Porte City escaped defeat and we had to settle for a scoreless tie. This was the first home game and the first game on the Raiders' new field. The Raiders went down to Traer and all that they could return home with was a 6-6 game. Raiders' The unbeaten early in downs to go The and ran all Two regulars, High and Scallon, sat this one out which weakened the offense. Raiders became one of the top twenty teams in the state by tying the Spartans from Grundy Center in a 6-6 Homecoming tilt. Ackley scored the third quarter and had the ball on the six-yard line with three when the gun ended the game. Raiders, after seeming to be neld in check all season really let loose over T. C. High, racking up the highest margin in the North Iowa Cedar League play this year with a N1-6 victory. Steffen was not to be stopped and scored 36 points, gaining 210 yards. ' Ten seniors played their last football game with their traditional rivals Eldora, on October 26. The Raiders hit fast and hard and had a 20-0 half-time lead. They took the opening kickoff for a TD in five plays and kept pouring it on. Final score, 20-7. The Raiders ended the season with a heart-breaker. They lost to the Rams, 20-21. Because of the win Reinbeck took the 1951 N.I.C.L. title with a 5-1-1 record. This made the loss even worse for the Raiders to bear.
