All four Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football teams were on the road for the final weekend (Nov. 9-10) of regular season play.
On Saturday the PeeWees prevailed in a close contest with Nanaimo NDSS. The PeeWee team closed out their season with six consecutive wins. There are no playoffs for this age group.
The Raiders Junior Bantams were defeated 46-30 by the NDSS JBs. On Sunday, Nov. 17 the Raiders Junior Bantams travel to Parksville for a 1 p.m. kick-off against Oceanside in the first round of the playoffs.
This past Sunday, the Bantam Raiders were in Victoria where the Spartans kicked a last-minute field goal to complete the comeback, downing Comox Valley 13-12. This was followed by the Midget Raiders taking it on the chin by the Victoria Midgets 44-6.
“Great job by the players and coaches in representing Raiders Football and the Comox Valley throughout Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland,” a CVRYF spokesperson said.
