It looked as though the Raiders might survive the turnover and force a three-and-out, but the Bears converted on third-and-15 on Zach Harris' 15-yard pass to Hayden Gardella. From there, the Bears drove the length of the field and capitalized on third-and-5 from the Riverwood 17, when Harris hit Jack Marlow for the touchdown.
It would only get worse for the Raiders from there.
On the ensuing kickoff, they were called for a 15-yard blocking in the back penalty, which put them on their own 15. On the drive’s first play, they fumbled and the Bears recovered at the line of scrimmage. Four plays later, Collins scored on a 1-yard run to make it 24-7 with 1:53 left in the third quarter.
The Raiders responded on the next drive on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Smith to Ronel Saintvil with 10:46 remaining, but the extra point attempt was blocked. That brought the score to its final margin.
The Raiders had a chance to pull closer, with their defense forcing three punts. But they turned the ball over on downs twice and ended the game on an incomplete pass to the end zone.
Gardella led the Bears with 75 yards on five catches.
The Raiders were led by Deangelo Thompson’s 79 yards on 14 carries. Smith had 74 yards on 10 carries and Saintvil had 58 yards on two catches.
