Raiders roll past Knoxville

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The Richmond Raiders improved to 2-1 on the young 2012 season with a 70-42 victory over the Knoxville Nighthaws at the Richmond Coliseum on Saturday night.

Richmond opened up the game on a 13-0 run, all off turnovers to open things up.  Knoxville scored the next 14 to go up by one, but a blocked field goal attempt led to a touchdown for the Raiders, putting them up 20-14.  They would never look back en route to the win.

The two teams will meet next Saturday in Knoxville as Richmond hits the road.  The Nighthawks fell to 0-2 with the Saturday's loss.
