Huntington used a balanced offense early and often to take down Loyola Prep, 46-25, on Homecoming night at independence stadium on Friday evening.

The Raiders raced out to a 30-7 lead less than 16 minutes into the game behind three touchdown passes by Kamron Evans while Memajah Riley added three touchdown runs to help finish off the Flyers.

The first half had most of the fireworks.

Riley scored from 10 yards out early in the contest to make it 8-0 but Loyola answered on a five-yard touchdown pass from Jacob LaFitte to Coby Hamilton to make it 8-7 with 4:43 remaining in the first quarter.

Huntington would get those points right back with a 12-yard pass from Evans to Tre Carter to make 16-7 heading into the second quarter. An explosive play, a 60-yard pass from Evans to Azavia Wise, extended the raiders’ advantage to 22-7 before the pair hooked up again for a 20-yard score to make it 30-7.

Trey Wall’s three-yard touchdown run drew the Flyers a little closer by the Raiders again had a response via a Riley three-yard touchdown to make it 38-13 but Loyola found the promised land again right before halftime to make it 38-19.

Halftime adjustments by both defenses slowed the game down significantly but the Raiders stayed in complete command.

“We executed well, ran the ball well, and showed great effort,“ said Huntington Head Coach Stephen Dennis.

The final score by the Raiders came on Riley’s four-yard run late in the third period and Loyola’s only points of the half were posted Reagan Coyle on a nine-yard run halfway through the final quarter.

Huntington (3-1) will travel to Evangel (1-3) on October 1 while Loyola (1-3) will visit West Quachita (2-2).
