Sunnyvale wide receiver Noah McDill had eight catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns as the Raiders rolled to a 67-12 rout of Wills Point on Wednesday.

It has been an unusual year to say the least and that includes what has transpired on the gridiron.

Since its inaugural season in 2010, Sunnyvale had lost more than three games in a season only once and had suffered just one defeat in each of the last two years.

Yet at the midpoint of this season, the Raiders were staring a 1-4 record in the face.

Sunnyvale got back on the right track with a win a week ago and then took out some pent-up frustrations on Wills Point on Wednesday with a 67-12 thrashing at Raider Stadium.

The Raiders improve to 3-4 overall, but more importantly, are 2-1 in district play, putting them in good shape to return to the playoffs for the seventh consecutive season.

Sunnyvale nearly eclipsed its season-high for points during a first-half blitz that saw them open a 42-0 lead.

There were plenty of big plays, and following an interception by Brenden Gomez,  Max McAda threw a 73-yard touchdown pass to Noah McDill to grab a 7-0 lead.

Obi Arinze and Jake Taylor followed with short touchdown runs to stake the Raiders to a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Early in the second, McAda went back to McDill for a 20-yard scoring strike, Isaiah Sims broke free for a 32-yard touchdown run and McAda found Joey Bruszer for a 65-yard score to make it 42-0 at halftime.

Sunnyvale used a familiar combination to start the third quarter, as McDill hauled in a 50-yard touchdown pass from McAda.

Jake Pecina booted a 21-yard field goal, the defense recorded a safety and back-up Rigdon Yates completed a 40-yard scoring strike to Brenden Gomez to push the advantage to 61-0 at the end of three quarters.

The Raiders put it in cruise control from that point, but did find the end zone one more time when Kyse Said scored on a 8-yard touchdown run.
