Raiders break into win column

WESTMONT, Ill. -- The situation was strikingly similar. The outcome was decidedly different. It ensured the Quincy Notre Dame football players would enjoy the long road home. Holding a 21-0 lead at halftime Friday night against Westmont, the Raiders showed they've learned how to finish. An interception by Ben Kasparie on the first possession of the third quarter led to an Ike Wiley touchdown run that propelled QND to a 49-0 victory and its first victory of the season.
