Raider Boys Earn Big Conference Win Over Eaton Rapids

The Raider boys hosted the Greyhounds of Eaton Rapids on Friday night in the second game of Winterfest.

The Raiders jumped out to an early 16-10 lead, but the Greyhounds would not go down easy. They Raiders battled for the full four quarters and earned the 46-40 win.

Score by quarter:


Portland 16-6-6-18-46

ER 10-9-12-9-40

Sophomore David Svanda lead the Raiders with 12 points, 11 of which were in the final quarter. He was followed by junior Blake Patrick and sophomore Owen Russell with 11 each.

After the game, coach Dave Pettit said, “We played hard right from the start. We got off to a hot start there, and I think we just settled in, and we didn’t do the little things and we let them get back into it there in the first half. But we finished it out strong. In the fourth quarter we stepped up and got a couple offensive rebounds, a couple put backs. David Svanda was really big in the second half, I thought, even though he was in a bit of foul trouble. There was that stretch in the third quarter where I just felt like they were getting every lose ball and every offensive rebound, and we kind of challenged our guys. We have to do all the little things, and they kind of picked it up right there.”

The Raiders move to 3-14 on the year, and will host undefeated Olivet (15-0) on Tuesday night.
