Each Raiders football team victorious

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the Comox Valley Raiders bantam football team (5-1) took on the Cowichan Bulldogs (3-2-1) in a battle to lock-up a playoff spot.

With a large crowd on hand at Bill Moore Park in Courtenay, the Raiders came away with a 30-3 win with a complete team effort. The offence was led by Ethan Johnsen and Jayden Morrison-Feader each with two catches and tremendous blocking. On defence, Brodie Lawrie had a crucial tackle on third down on the one-yard line, and Bryce Benton had a shoestring tackle on a long run to ensure the Bulldogs were not getting into the end zone on this day. Colton Brown and Jaedon Mathieu had huge plays on special teams which helped solidify the win.

It was a stellar performance by the entire Raiders club, with the peewees 32-18, junior bantams 50-6, bantams 30-3 and midgets 34-22 all securing victories on the weekend.
