Colonel Crawford hosted their first ever playoff game Friday night, but the Eagles would not soar off their home field with a victory.

Visiting Wayne Trace would take an early 20-0 lead off of 3 touchdown passes by stud quarterback Colby Speice. Crawford would answer with a scoring drive late in the second quarter, but Speice would throw for another score just before the half to give the Raiders a commanding 28-6 lead at the break.

Midway through the third quarter the Eagles would chop the lead down to two scores on a 13-yard hookup from senior quarterback Nate Klingenberger to junior tight end Kameron Landin and would answer another Trace touchdown with a 53-yard touchdown catch by wideout Dylan Gulley. But 34-21 is as close as Crawford would get, as Speice would lead the Raiders on back to back scoring drives to put the game out of reach and take his team to the regional semi's with a 52-28 victory.

Speice finished with 346 yards and 5 touchdowns through the air, adding another score on the ground. Klingenberger had 311 passing yards and 4 scores in his final game in an Eagles uniform, tossing 2 TD's to Gulley.

Wayne Trace improves to 10-1 and will take on 10-1 Tinora next Friday, a Rams team that beat the Raiders 27-16 earlier in the season. Colonel Crawford finishes the season as co-NCC champs at 9-2.
