WIESBADEN, Germany -- The Kaiserslautern Raiders moved into a tie for second place in DODEA-Europe Division I football Friday night with a 21-7 defeat of the host Wiesbaden Warriors.
The win improves Kaiserslautern to 2-1 in divisional play, drawing the Raiders even with archrival Ramstein for the runner-up spot behind undefeated Stuttgart. Ramstein will visit Kaiserslautern on Oct. 11, after next weekend’s league-wide bye, to break the deadlock.
Kevin Hunter carried 19 times for 215 yards for the Raiders. Darius Camp added 82 rushing yards on six carries, including a fourth-quarter run for an insurance touchdown.
Kaiserslautern quarterback Nelson Rivas tossed touchdowns to Tre Dotson and Nick Henry.
Nico Giandalia led the Warriors with 76 yards on 20 carries. Hayden Smith provided Wiesbaden’s lone score on a fumble return for a touchdown and also made an interception.
The Warriors will continue their fight to return to the postseason Oct. 12 against 2018 runner-up Lakenheath.
