The young Middletown Blue Raiders traveled to Mechanicsburg on Sunday, Nov. 3 for the CFA National Conference semifinals, defeating the Wildcats on their home field to earn a spot in the National Conference Super Bowl.  


The Raiders won the first meeting early in the season, but beating Mechanicsburg again wasn’t going to be easy The game was a true test of wills for two teams who battled each other toe to toe.  


The teams traded touchdowns in the first half, and the game was tied 13-13 at halftime.  


The second half was very entertaining. Mechanicsburg received the ball to start the half and took the lead on Middletown, but the Raiders came right back and scored a touchdown of their own to take a 20-19 lead into the final quarter.
