Posted: Updated:

The Albany Panthers jumped out to a quick 20-3 lead on the road against the Richmond Raiders after Cecil Lester found a diving Antwone Savage in the end zone for the Panther's 3rd score of the game.  Before the half, Lester hooked up with a crossing John Harris for 6 more.  The Panthers lead 35-15 at halftime.

The second half yielded a different story, Richmond tied the game with less than 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter.  The Panthers however would add another touchdown and hold off the Raiders for the 48-42 win. Albany is now 9-1, they'll head to Columbus to play the Lions on 4th of June.
