After tallying 180 yards a week prior, senior tailback Nick Shiver continued to impress with 135 yards on six carries and two touchdowns. Fellow senior David Aller also had a solid night in the backfield, as he ran five times for 85 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, defensive back Ryan McFadden and linebacker Lucas Shiver each had nine tackles. Tyler Ford added five tackles and recovered a fumble in the Raptors’ end zone.

Academic Magnet (2-2) sophomore tailback Nate Schlosser had 108 rushing yards on 24 carries. Schlosser also caught four passes for 36 yards and two touchdowns. Nate Anderson, at 5 feet 10 inches and 225 pounds, bruised his way for 85 yards on 13 carries, including a trip to pay dirt.

It was Bishop England’s second win of the season, and first region game, after starting 0-2. The Bishops host North Charleston (0-4) on Friday.
