The Lady Raiders played two away games at Choctaw and Milton this week without keeper Julianna DeSalle (family vacation) and Emily Madril (resting injuries). The Raiders won the first game against Choctaw easily, by a 6 – 0 score.
However, after shutting out Milton for 68 minutes with a two-goal lead, the Raiders allowed an easy goal off a corner kick to cut the Raider lead to 2 – 1. Then, with under two minutes remaining, the Raiders committed a foul in the box. The Panthers tied the game on the ensuing penalty kick and the Raiders came away with a disappointing 2 – 2 tie.

Martino scored her second goal in the 24th minute. Freshman Anekah Madril made a long pass down the middle of the field. Martino outraced two Indian defenders to the ball and went in alone from 20 yards out. She easily beat the Indian keeper to put the Raiders up by a 2 – 0 score.
In the 38th minute, Anekah Madril moved the ball deep into the Indian defense. As the defenders came to her, she turned and quickly dropped a pass back to her sister, Lizzie. Waiting at the 25-yard line, Lizzie sent a high, looping shot into the upper right corner of the net. The Raiders led 3 – 0.
In the 45th minute, Lexi Stikeleather scored after taking a long pass from Kayla Folse, giving the Raiders a 4 – 0 lead.
