The Raymond Comets high school football team is on a roll.
A week after a dominating 50-0 win over the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams, Raymond dismantled the Cardston Cougars by a 58-0 count.
After a tough start to the season, where Raymond dropped its first game against the No. 1 ranked Harry Ainlay Titans, and also lost star running back Brock Barnett in the process, Raymond has its season back on track.
In the latest Football Alberta rankings, Raymond came in at No. 3, just behind Ainlay and No. 2 Salisbury.
Now, the Comets prepare for a date against Tier 2 Medicine Hat, as Raymond is set to travel to face the Hawks tonight.
