Middletown Coach Brett Myers gave this assessment of the Blue Raiders' 34-14 loss to Milton Hershey on Friday, Oct. 3 at War Memorial Field: “We stood toe-to-toe with the best team in the division in the first half. But we made some mistakes in the second half. And that’s because we are young.”
Locked up in a 14-14 tie at halftime, the two teams took the field to start the second half with the outcome still very much in doubt. But the visiting Spartans took advantage of a couple of Raider mistakes early in the third quarter by scoring a pair of quick touchdowns that pushed Middletown into a 28-14 hole.
And the Raiders spent the rest of the contest trying to dig their way out.
