Junior Bantam Raiders topple Titans in football tilt

Comox Valley team hosts Nanaimo this Saturday, 1 p.m., at Bill Moore Memorial Park

The Comox Valley Raiders Junior Bantam football team defeated the Oceanside Titans 14-0 to improve to 2-0 on the regular season.

It was a wet Saturday, Oct. 10 afternoon at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay, and Raiders’ coach Damon Mair was impressed by how his team fought through the weather and put together an outstanding defensive performance.

“There were great individual efforts put forth on defence by Mark Biollo, Xavier Horth-Bourdrias and Hannah Bourbyn, each of whom made numerous tackles behind the line of scrimmage,” Mair said.

“On offence there was very strong running by Braden Perfitt (two TDs), blocking by Justin Meredith-Jones and QB play by Austin Osterbeck.”

The Raiders’ next game is this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Bill Moore Field against the Fairview (Nanaimo) Cowboys who are the defending champions. “This should be an entertaining tilt with both teams fighting for first place,” Mair said.

 

“Also with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month we encourage everyone to wear pink to show their support. Free admission and all are welcome.”
