Jordan Scarlett rushed for three scores and the Raiders defense earned its fourth shutout in five games at Cooper City on Friday.
The Raiders (7-1, 3-0 Dist. 15-7A) locked up a playoff berth, derailing the Spartans’ (4-4, 2-2) postseason hopes in the process with a 48-0 victory. The district title will be decided next Friday when St. Thomas hosts Plantation.
The Raiders outscored their last four opponents 226-7 and showed no signs of slowing down against the Spartans. St. Thomas stormed out to a 21-0 lead behind a Deltron Sands scoring run and two touchdowns from Scarlett, the University of Miami commit who finished with an efficient 151 yards rushing on just 10 carries.
