The Raiders ranked fifth in conference play this year with a 2-2-3 record.
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.
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,
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 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.
