Cornell Raider Raequan Troutman takes off with the ball during the Sept. 23 game against Carlynton.
By Mike Longo Jr.
For the Carlynton Cougars, there would be only one so-called bright spot in their 42-0 drubbing at the hands of Cornell. The lone highlight would be the fact they picked off Raiders Quarterback C.J. Jackson three times in the contest, failing to score any points in the game.
Cornell however showed exactly what you would expect from a team of its caliber, total domination.
After jumping out to a 15-0 first-quarter lead, Cornell never looked back seemingly putting its offense on cruise control. They built a 28-0 lead at intermission and built a 42-0 cushion after three quarters of play. That would remain the score until the final buzzer sounded.
It was a highlight reel so to speak for the Raiders.
Khylil Johnson scored twice on runs of 15 and 9 yards. Drevon Newton snagged an 83-yard catch and run for a touchdown. While "Mr. Everything," Raequan Troutman, added three touchdowns. Troutman would score three different ways. A 55-yard punt return, 70-yard interception return and he capped off his scoring night with a 7-yard run.
