RHEYDEN LEE OF the Junior Bantam Raiders busts a big run up the sideline during Sunday's game against Nanaimo.

Raiders youth football teams starting to hit stride

All four teams are home this weekend for games at Bill Moore Memorial Park

The young guns are starting to roll for the Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football Club.

In a doubleheader Sunday at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay, the PeeWee Raiders came up with their best effort of the season, resulting in a lopsided win over Nanaimo Fairview.

Not to be outdone, the Junior Bantam Raiders kept the momentum going by upsetting the much larger Nanaimo Fairview NDSS squad 31-26 to send the home crowd home happy.

Unfortunately the Midget Raiders didn’t fare as well in Nanaimo where they were pummelled 46-0 by the WRSS Titans.

Week 7 action features all four Raiders teams at Bill Moore park. The fun kicks off Friday at 6:30 p.m. when the Junior Bantams host the Campbell River Eagles.

On Saturday, the PeeWees host the Campbell River Eagles at 11 a.m. A doubleheader Sunday starts at 1 p.m. with the Bantams hosting the North Surrey Bears followed at 3 p.m. by the Midgets against the North Surrey Bears.
