Landry Otten threw three touchdown passes and John Uchytil tossed two to help the Hudson Raider football team defeat River Falls, 40-0, Friday night and keep the Little Brown Jug in Hudson for the fifth straight year.

Otten and Uchytil combined to throw for 308 yards and the Raiders added 176 yards and a touchdown on the ground as Hudson improved to 6-0 in the Big Rivers Conference and set up a showdown with undefeated Menomonie Friday, Oct. 18, for the BRC title.

Otten threw touchdown passes of 28 yards to Jake Giordana and 73 and 16 yards to Alex Herink while Uchytil, in his first game since Sept. 13 due to injury, hooked up with Giordana for a 24-yard score and Herink for a 73-yard bomb.

Hunter Frey ran for 67 yards, including a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The Raiders scored on their first four possessions of the game on their way to building a 26-0 halftime lead.
