Reed’s quest for the postseason took a slight detour Friday night when they marched into Reno High and were shut out, 39-0.
The loss dropped Reed (5-2, 1-1) into a tie for third in the High Desert League standings with McQueen. Reno sits atop the division with a 7-0 record overall and are now 2-0 in conference.
Reed couldn’t get much going on offense in their road loss, and quickly found themselves down 20-0 at half. The second half played out much the same as the Huskies dominated the time of possession throughout the night.
Raiders quarterback Cameron Emerson completed just 11 of 23 passes, the longest being a 22 yard hookup with Dominic Wrede, which was the biggest play of the game for an offense that could only muster 133 total yards.
Reed will now turn its attention to McQueen (3-3, 1-1) in another big HDL matchup Friday on the road. The Lancers snapped a three game losing streak last Friday with a 26-12 win at home over Hug.
