Trenton puts up 52 points against error-prone Raiders.
This opener was almost as sad as last years. In 2013, the Raiders had a 42 point loss to the eventual champion Alabama Hammers. Although they were hoping for better to start to the 2014 campaign, they received similar results as they faced Trenton Freedom (52-17).
Richmond got a spark from special teams in the fourth quarter. Kevin Allen returned a blocked extra point for two, and Gerron “Scooby” Bryant had two kickoff returns totaling 79 yards. Both returned led to Raider touchdowns, but they came too late to make a difference.
The Raiders‘ home opener will be April 12 in a Championship Game rematch against the Alabama Hammers. Single game and group event tickets are now on sale at the Raiders’ website, www.RichmondRaidersProFootball.com, and the Raiders’ hotline at 804.780.0430. Tickets start at just $7, and lower level tickets are on a Buy 2, Get 1 Free special for Opening Night.
