Raiders refreshed after bye week

The V.I. Raiders appreciated this past weekend’s break in the B.C. Football Conference schedule.

During a tough, physical football season, bye weeks almost always seem to come at a good time.

The V.I. Raiders appreciated this past weekend’s break in the B.C. Football Conference schedule.

“As much as physically, I think mentally having a break, just to get away, is good for everybody,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach.

He said his team will look at the mid-season point as a time to regroup.

“You grade yourself [on] your faults more than your positives and really work on correcting those,” he said.

GAME ON … The Raiders (3-2) host the Okanagan Sun (4-1) Saturday (Sept. 7) at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park. Look for a preview in Thursday’s issue of the News Bulletin.
