GOOD HOPE — Led by quarterback Sebastion Fendley, who accounted for all five of the Raiders’ touchdowns, Good Hope cruised to a 35-7 home victory over Cordova on Friday night.

The senior signal-caller completed 16 of 24 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns, and ran the ball nine times for 136 yards and another score.

Fendley kept the ball on a read-option play and ran through the left side of Cordova’s defense 10 yards for a touchdown on the game’s opening drive.

Good Hope’s next drive ended on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Fendley to Kainan Smith.

A bad snap to the punter caused Cordova to turn the ball over near midfield on the ensuing drive, and the Raiders needed only four plays to find the end zone when Fendley hooked up with Smith on a screen pass for a 45-yard touchdown.

Good Hope extended its lead to 28-0 with 3:08 left in the first half when Crumbley raced down the right sideline past the defense to haul in a 31-yard touchdown pass in the end zone.

Fendley’s final touchdown, late in the third quarter, was a 24-yard screen pass to Justin Turner.

Cordova struggled to move the ball consistently, gaining 184 yards in the game, while Good Hope rolled up 497 yards of total offense.

Charles Woods led the Blue Devils with 73 yards on seven carries. Skylar Thomas caught three passes for 17 yards, including a four-yard touchdown from quarterback Jonathan Shumate with 21 seconds left in the second quarter.

Smith was Good Hope’s leading receiver, catching five passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Crumbley had four receptions for 87 yards and a score, and Turner had two catches for 28 yards and a touchdown.

Running back Jared McClure had a busy night for the Raiders. He carried the ball nine times for 30 yards and caught three passes for 46 yards.

Cordova (2-6, 1-5) hosts Hanceville next week.
