May 18, 2005 - Lexington, KY - Lexington, KY - The Lexington Horsemen look to continue their winning ways Saturday as they face the Tennessee Valley Raptors in Huntsville, Ala. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET in the Von Braun Center and the game will be carried live on Supertalk 96.1 FM with Gary Ball.

The Horsemen (5-3) are half game back of division-leading Evansville in the UIF South Division. Lexington is coming off the third-largest victory in franchise history with a 75-13 win over the Tupelo Fireants last Saturday in Rupp Arena. Horsemen wide receiver/running back Harry Lewis caught three touchdown passes and ran for one, marking a single-game career high four scores, while Derek Homer accumulated 73 yards on the ground with three rushing touchdowns.

“We came ready to play against Tupelo and it really showed,” Horsemen head coach Bob Sphire said. “Our defense did a nice job of setting the tone for us.”

Lexington’s potent special-team unit is leading the UIF in kick returns. Led by William Mulder, who earned UIF Special Teams Player of the Week honors for Week 7, the Horsemen are leading the league in kickoff returns. Lexington has returned 43 kicks for 902 yards (21.0 avg.) with two touchdowns.

The Horsemen also are first in the league in turnover margin with a +8 turnover ratio. In its last game vs. Tupelo, Lexington recovered four Fireants interceptions for 93 yards.

Tennessee Valley (2-5) lost its last game with 48-24 defeat at the hands of the Evansville Bluecats. The Raptors are in third place in the UIF South Division and are averaging 36.0 points per game, while the Horsemen are averaging 48.6 ppg. This will be the first time the Horsemen have ever faced the Raptors.

Following Saturday’s contest, the Horsemen return home for a critical match-up with interdivision foe Omaha on May 28 with kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m. in Rupp Arena. Single-game tickets for the remaining five games of the 2005 season, including the Omaha contest, are still available for purchase.
