Raiders fall in football opener, 40-6


The Hastings football team lost its season opener on Thursday night to Mounds View, 40-6.

The game, coach Dana Strain said, was closer than the score would indicate.

Hastings trailed 13-0 with about three minutes to play in the first half, and the Raiders had marched down the field on an impressive drive that covered some 80 yards.

With the ball on the Mounds View 10 yard line, though, Hastings fumbled the ball and turned it over.
