Youth football teams put on a show

Busy weekend of action at Bill Moore park features Comox Valley Raiders

Thanksgiving weekend featured three extremely entertaining youth football games at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay.

Friday night under the lights, the Comox Valley Raiders Junior Bantams hosted the Campbell River Eagles in a hard-fought contest in which the Eagles prevailed 45-42.

On Saturday the Raiders PeeWees were able to come from behind and defeat the Campbell River Eagles by two touchdowns.

On Sunday the Bantam Raiders were competitive with the more experienced North Surrey Tigers, holding the score to 21-20 going into the fourth quarter where the Tigers scored two quick touchdowns to win 36-20.

The Raider Midget game was cancelled due to injuries and the flu bug.

“Terrific football games provided by six teams of players whose efforts were outstanding,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said.

In Week 8 (Oct. 19-20) action, all four Raiders teams are on the road. On Saturday the Midgets are in Maple Ridge to face the Knights at 3:30 p.m.

On Sunday the PeeWees are in Parksville for an 11 a.m. kickoff followed at 1 p.m. by the Junior Bantams playing Oceanside. Also Sunday, the Bantams travel to Langley to play the Mustangs at 1 p.m.
