Comox Valley Raiders Junior Bantams wrap up football season with win

The Comox Valley Junior Bantam Raiders wrapped up their season with a win.

The Comox Valley Raiders wrapped up their Junior Bantam football season in style Saturday, defeating the Campbell River Eagles to win the Strathcona Cup.

“As part of a new tradition we were playing for the Strachcona Cup, which will be awarded each season to the winner between our clubs,” the Raiders’ Damon Mair explained.

This game was exciting right to the end as both teams put 14 points on the board by halftime. In the second half the game went back and forth, with the Raiders putting together a game-winning drive in the last three minutes topped off by a touchdown run by Connor Lloyd (his first of the season).

“We had outstanding play on offence by Braden Perfitt who ran for 163 yards and one TD on 11 carries,” Mair said. “On defence Xavier Horth-Boudrias and Andrew Barna-Yung were all over the field from their linebacker positions, making plays sideline to sideline.

“For Campbell River they had great efforts by #66 (eight tackles, blocked kick and a rushing TD), #43 (six tackles and excellent play at QB) and #18 and #68 each had huge running plays putting the Eagles in position for both of their scores,” Mair said.

“The fantastic sportsmanship that both of these teams demonstrated all game was still on display after the game as everyone swapped stories and laughs with good food provided for each player.”

The Raiders will now begin their offseason training with an eye to their spring camps. For more information  visit their website at comoxvalleyraiders.com
