In their final tune up before the start of the 2014 regular season, the El Paso Raiders took on their cross-town, fall league rivals the El Paso Seminoles on Sunday, February 9. Spurred by a dominating defense, the Raiders shut out the Seminoles 52-0. The Raiders were able to convert 4 of 6 Seminoles turnovers into points, en-route to the shutout. In addition to the six turnovers, the Raider defense only allowed the Seminoles 110 yards for the entire game.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Raiders racked up 385 yards, on 50 plays. The Seminoles offense was held to only 5 first downs for the entire game.

Special Teams struggled, as Raider kickers went 3/8 on point after attempts, along with one field goal miss from 34 yards out early in the game. The Raiders were penalized 17 times for 110 yards, while the Seminoles had 5 penalties for 25 yards.

The Raiders now turn their attention to their season opener at home, versus the Las Cruces Kings.
