A few minutes later Santiago nearly scored again but the ball was covered by Raider goalie Stuart Long.
The half ended with a 1-0 Wildcat lead, but that was short lived when in the first five minutes of the second half the Raiders scored twice to go up 2-1.
The Raiders added two more offensive strikes and a penalty kick just before time expired to win 5-1.
