FROTENAC, Kan. — The Frontenac Raiders opened their season with a 20-0 win over the Columbus Raiders on Saturday morning.

Senior quarterback Collin McCartney passed the ball to senior receiver Aaron Doria got the Raiders on the board to lead 6-0. Senior running back Justice Compton and Junior running back Mario Menghini also received touchdown passes in the Raiders’ win.

Frontenac moves to 1-0 on the season, while Columbus moves to 0-1. Frontenac will return to action on Friday, September 10 at Coweta, Oklahoma, while Columbus will host Field Kinley.
