Fullback Dan Loughney accounted for 157 of Hudson's 358 yards on the ground and Loughney, Michael Hommes and Joseph Kelly all ran for touchdowns as the Raiders improved to 2-0 with a 24-14 victory at Rice Lake Friday night, Aug. 31.


Loughney, who missed the Raiders' season-opening win over Kenosha Bradford a week earlier with a foot injury, opened the scoring with a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Hommes scored on a 17-yard run later in the first to give Hudson a 14-7 lead.

Sam Somerville booted a 31-yard field goal in the third quarter to extend Hudson's lead to 17-7. Rice Lake pulled to within a field goal later in the third quarter before Kelly sealed the win with a 14-yard fourth quarter TD run.
