Not much was going right for Reed High football team at the start of the season after getting blown out in its first two contests, but things are starting to turn around for the Raiders. The team is now riding a three-game winning streak after blowing out Wooster on the road, 54-0.
The Raiders dominated from start to finish after getting out to a 27-0 start at the break. Much of that domination came from senior quarterback Baylor Horning, who threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns while also running for one.
His favorite target had a big night of his own.
Elijah Tau Tolliver caught two passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns, while adding two scores on the ground to match his quarterback with four total on the night. Brayden Mullen caught the only other touchdown pass for the Raiders and Christian Richer was responsible for the lone touchdown run outside of Tolliver and Horning.
Richer led the way on defense with 16 total tackles while Tyler Curry added 12 and Ben Tucker 10.
Reed improved to 3-2 with the win and will play at McQueen (5-0) Friday night at 7 p.m.
The Cougs won their second straight game and improved to .500 on the season after a 35-14 win at Carson Friday night. Spanish Springs held a tight 14-7 lead at the half before pulling away with 14 points in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
Parker Luthy led the way on the ground for the Cougs with two rushing touchdowns on 11 carries and 67 yards. Colby Preston and Jonny Lee both added a touchdown run for Spanish Springs.
Sophomore quarterback Tristan Szabo threw for 280 yards and a touchdown to Colby Melton. Jordan Dudick led the receiving unit with six catches for 117 yards.
Parker Luthy had a team high nine total tackles for Spanish Springs.

The Railroaders lost for the second time in as many weeks after falling to Spring Creek at home Friday night, 28-6.
