CHARLOTTE — Two fourth-quarter touchdowns weren’t enough to get the job done on Friday for the Richmond Raider football team.

Losing to Myers Park High School 47-14, the Raiders suffered their fourth consecutive loss to begin the season.

That marked the worst start in the school’s 52-year history, surpassing last season’s 0-3 start.

Trailing 28-0 at halftime, two more scores by the Mustangs (1-3) made it a 40-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter.

A direct snap to senior running back Jaliel Green resulted in a 10-yard rushing score with 6:22 left in regulation. 


His score got Richmond on the board after a 95-yard drive and junior Billy West added the point-after attempt.

Following Myers Park’s final touchdown, sophomore quarterback Evan Hodges connected with junior running back Jordan Bostick for an 11-yard touchdown with two seconds on the clock.
