The gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Senior Night festivities will happen at 6 p.m. and the Raiders will kick off against the Vikings at 7 p.m.

Game two against Community

Cornersville handled Community in Unionville 36-6 last Friday. Sloppy play be the Viking combined with dogged third down and fourth down conversions by the Bulldogs found Community in a field position hole for most of the night. The Raiders will want to keep an eye on Viking QB Dallas Grooms and his favorite target McCade Miller on Thursday.
