Raiders' coach takes blame for not preparing his team
 
MtownFB2Photo by Jodi Ocker Middletown’s Josh Matinchek sacks Steelton-Highspire quarterback James Warren (3) during the Blue Raiders’ 26-7 loss to the Rollers.It was certainly no surprise to the Middletown coaching staff that Steelton-Highspire was an athletic team with speed. What was a surprise was how physical the Rollers were.

That combination led the Rollers to a 26-7 win over the Blue Raiders on Monday, Oct. 14 at Cottage Hill in Steelton in a game that was originally scheduled for Friday, Oct. 11 but was postponed by heavy rains.

“They are a physical team and it’s my job to prepare our team for that, but I didn’t,” said Middletown Coach Brett Myers, shouldering the blame following the disappointing setback. “We ran 15 plays in the first half and only three went for positive yards.”{jcomments on}
