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.
