MESQUITE — This weekend’s bye offers the Raiders a chance to do a few things. First, they can get ready for the Oct. 7 home clash with Royse City, and the second is some injured players can heal and get ready for the Bulldogs.
Last, but not least, though, the Raiders can use this time to reflect on a 26-14 loss to Mesquite Poteet on Sept. 22, a contest which the blue and white pretty much let slip through their fingers.
“We’re going to get some guys back who have been injured, and that is going to help us tremendously,” head coach Joe Lepsis said after the loss. “Focus on what happened (versus Poteet) is the main thing. What happened tonight is that we played our guts out, and we gave the game away through turnovers and special teams miscues. We’re going to learn from it or not, and we’ll find out (Oct. 7), because everybody in that locker room knows we should have won this football game, and it stings.”
