Detroit Country Day scored the only points of the first quarter after it grabbed a 7-0 lead on a fumble recovery. Detroit Country Day then took a 14-0 lead in the second. But Flushing responded with a score of its own when Ry’lon Roberts was on the receiving end of a 30-yard touchdown pass for a 14-7 score at halftime.

The only score of the second half came in the third quarter when Flushing got a safety.

Flushing outpaced Detroit Country Day in offense with 310 yards, while Detroit Country Day was held to 225 yards. Quarterback Tyler Morris was 9-of-17 for 110 yards and a touchdown. Roberts caught two passes for 39 yards and a touchdown. Logan Murphy also caught a pair of passes for 34 yards and Kade Andrews added 12 yards on two catches.

Cole Dunstan led the ground game with 88 yards on eight attempts. Roberts had nine carries for 33 yards. Joe Jaruzel added 25 yards on one carry.

Flushing, 1-2, hosts Brandon on Friday for a 7p.m. kickoff.  Last year, Flushing edged out Brandon by just a touchdown, winning 60-54. Brandon will be a tough opponent for the Raiders, as it is off to a 3-0 start on the season.
