Raby coach D'Angelo Dereef said his team is beginning to play the way he envisioned it would for the past three years. Quarterback Chris Covington accounted for seven touchdowns and the Raiders scored on their first three possessions to pull away for the Land of Lincoln victory.
With his team leading 12-3, Covington recovered a fumble on defense, and on the next play connected with Travis Powell for a 55-yard touchdown pass to extend the advantage to 18-3.
Covington's huge day included four touchdown passes, two rushing touchdowns, and an interception return for a score.

Covington finished 7-for-18 for 196 yards and had seven carries for 101 yards.
"I am just glad to do my part and be a part of a special team," Covington said.
