ON A SUNNY Sunday at Bill Moore Memorial Park

Home not so sweet home for Raiders

Three of four youth football teams lose home games at Bill Moore Memorial Park

The friendly confines of Bill Moore Memorial Park were not as friendly as the Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football club were hoping for on the weekend as three of the four local teams suffered Week 9 (Oct. 25-27) losses.

On Friday night the Junior Bantams were run over by the Cowichan Bulldogs 39-0. On Sunday the PeeWees led off the action by defeating Ladysmith in another close match to extend their winning streak to four games.

Next up the Chilliwack Giants pounded the Bantams 51-6 followed by the Midgets falling 21-0 to the Coquitlam Falcons.

All four Raiders teams are back on the road for Week 10 (Nov. 1-3) action. On Saturday the PeeWees travel to Nanaimo for an 11 a.m. kickoff  against  Barsby, then at 1 p.m. the Junior Bantams take on Barsby.

Also Saturday the Midgets will be in Chilliwack to face the Giants at 2 p.m. On Sunday the Bantams are off to Nanaimo for a 12 p.m. contest with the Nanaimo/Cowichan Red Dogs.
