ROCKINGHAM — A homecoming win was never in doubt for the Richmond Raider football team on Tuesday, which shut out Southern Lee High School 58-0.


Prior to the game, the members of the Richmond homecoming court were recognized by PA announcer Jim Butler.

Joining Richmond’s four captains and doing the coin toss was homecoming grand marshal Cory Satterfield.

A season-high five turnovers, two of which resulted in a touchdown, were key plays made by the Raider defense that held the Cavaliers to -17 yards of total offense.

All five takeaways (three fumble recoveries, two interceptions) were turned into touchdowns, including fumble recoveries for scores by senior J.D. Lampley and junior Frazion Steele.

Lampley picked up a loose ball forced out by freshman Joe Parsons and ran 15 yards to the house in the first quarter to make it 14-0. Steele scored the game’s final touchdown, scrambling 32 yards to the end zone after another Southern Lee fumble.

Adding to Lampley’s first-quarter turnover, seniors Jaleak Gates and Emerson Wall each had one interception. Wall’s pick came first at the 20-yard line, which resulted in a passing score to senior Javares Stanback from senior quarterback Kellan Hood.

Gates caught a tipped ball at the Southern Lee 44-yard line and returned it to the 17-yard line, leading to senior Nasir Crumpton’s lone rushing score of the game.

Junior running back Taye Spencer opened the scoring with a two-yard rushing touchdown on the Raiders’ second drive.

In the second quarter, Hood rushed for a 15-yard touchdown and a bad snap on a punt by the Cavs resulted in a safety.

Capping a 44-point first half, junior quarterback Emoni McBride laced a 24-yard strike to senior Cason Douglas in the back corner of the end zone with 14.1 seconds left. Douglas made the catch around a defender while falling backward.

Junior defensive lineman Jabori Hester forced and recovered a fumble in the early part of the fourth quarter, which resulted in McBride rushing into the end zone from one yard.

Richmond (7-1, 4-0  SAC) will host Lee County High School (5-2, 2-1 SAC) on Saturday at home. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.
