The Payson Raiders remained the only undefeated Rim country youth football team with a 28-0 victory over the Wickenburg Wranglers.

The game, which was contested Saturday on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, was highlighted by the Raiders early scoring.

"In the first five minutes of play, 22 points were scored," Raiders coach Dale Gonzales said.

The blitzkrieg got off to a quick start on the opening kickoff when Raider B.J. Hill recovered a fumble for the Raiders first TD. Cody York's extra point kick upped the Payson lead to 7-0.

Minutes later, after holding Wickenburg on downs, Jared Trammel returned a punt 55 yards for the Raiders second score. York tallied a two-point conversion run.

Adding further to the Wranglers' early misery was David Weaver's blocked punt that he scooped up and returned for a TD.

According to Gonzales, Anthony Armstead led the Payson team in rushing with 103 yards.

With an interception, Ryan Cox led a rock-solid defense that held Wickenburg to a minuscule 35 yards.

Next up for the Raiders is a Oct. 25 showdown against the Camp Verde Bulldogs in Camp Verde.
