Last-second bucket gives Raiders win


Maurice Hernandez came off the bench last year to help the Central Lakes College Raiders dominate opponents on their home court.

Now a starter, Hernandez stepped up to defend the Raiders’ home court in grand fashion during Saturday’s 59-57 victory over Quakerdale Prep in the Raiders’ home opener.

With two seconds left, Hernandez received a pass from Michael Farrington in the low block. His shot kissed the backboard and slide through the basket for the winning score.
