Oak Hill got off to a slow start on Friday night as the Raiders had a tough time playing in the nasty weather. 

Oak Hill found itself in a 20-0 hole at halftime, which became a 27-0 deficit going into the fourth quarter.

In the fourth, linebacker Dylan Scott returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown and John Carver Middleton ran for a 5-yard touchdown to make the final score 33-13.

“I’m very proud of our team and their maximum effort,” Oak Hill head coach Chris Craven said.

Craven said that his team battled and stuck together through all odds this season. “It was a season that was marked by tragedy and adversity,” Craven said. “The loss of a teammate, a game being ruled no-contest due to weather delays, and injuries that kept students out of competition along the way.”

While Craven hates to lose his seniors to graduation, he says that the Raiders have a lot returning in 2018. 

“I am very proud of these players and their achievements this season. Our seniors rose to the challenge and led the way,” Craven said. “We are only graduating five seniors this year and I look forward to what the future holds for Oak Hill football.”
