On Thursday night when the Rice Consolidated Raiders met the Columbus Cardinals in the Colorado River Rivalry game, it was the Adam Schobel and Jordan Woods show.
The Cardinals got on the board first on an 11-yard pass from Adam Schobel to Corbin Cleveland. The Raiders answered with a 12-yard TD run by James Cotton. The PAT was no good and Columbus led 7-6 at the end of the first quarter.
And then Adam Schobel and Jordan Woods took over.
Schobel connected with Woods on TD passes of 60, 45 and 15 yards and Columbus went into halftime with a 28-6 lead.
Out of the halftime break, Schobel once again connected with Woods for a 28-yard touchdown pass to push the Cardinals lead to 35-6.
The Cardinals Ni’Jay Johnson added a 16-yard TD run and Columbus led 42-6 after 3 quarters.
Early in the 4th quarter Columbus was threatening again but a fumble resulted in a 96-yard fumble return for the Raiders D’Nyerian Fuller. With the 2-pt conversion the score was Columbus 42, Rice Consolidated 14.
The Cardinals JJ Hurd added a 1-yard TD run and the final score was Columbus 49, Rice Consolidated 14.
