The defending champs of the Budweiser Football League, the Raiders, opened the 2013 season with a win against the Steelers 32-0 at Eagle field Saturday.

Both teams saw bouts of first game jitters, fumbling the ball only a few minutes into the game. But the Raiders got their act together, and began to put points on the board.

“We made plays where we had to, to get the points on the board; first game jitters still,” said Raiders quarterback Danny Manibusan about the win.

The Raiders wasted no time scoring on their first offensive drive thanks to running back Dave Delgado who came loose and ran down the field to put his them in favorable field positioning. A 13-yard pass from Manibusan to wide receiver Joshua Marini put the Raiders on the board early in the first quarter.

A few minutes later, the Steelers were unable to get the first down and were forced into a punt sitation. Set to receive, Raiders’ Stephen Santos darted down the field for a 63-yard punt return touchdown.

With only second left in the first quarter, Matt Javier grabbed a new set of downs after his 18-yard run brought the Raiders to the 10-yard line. At third and inches to the goal line, Javier hit pay dirt; Alex Azcarraga ran in for the two-point conversion making the score 20-0.

Late in the second quarter, Manibusan launched a perfect pass to Jacob Torre for a 60-yard reception touchdown.

Raiders running back Dave Delgado punched in the last touchdown of the game to cap off the win.

“Coming out as the defending champs, we still gotta work. We have high expectations. Bottom line is, its hard to be on top, but once everyone gets their things together, we can get the title again,” said Manibusan.
