Jordan Sosby contributed eight points and David Wenger had six for the Raiders, who led 32-27 at halftime.

Greenon was unable to recover in the final quarter.

Anthony Colletti scored 20 points to lead Greenon.

In junior varsity action, Ben Logan ran past Greenon 47-35. Grant Ricketts led Ben Logan with 13 points and Kyle Ackley had 12 points.
