The V.I. Raiders will need to keep winning to maintain their first-place standing.
Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League squad faces its next challenge this Saturday (Sept. 21) when it takes on the Westshore Rebels in Victoria.
Last week’s 41-27 victory over the Langley Rams was a big one, but the Raiders said afterward they needed to keep pushing forward.
“Every game is a different game and every team is a different team. Anything can happen; it’s football,” said Andrew Deleon, Raiders running back. “We know we’re not the best but we also know we’re not the worst and we’re ready for whatever comes our way.”
GAME ON … The Raiders (5-2) and Rebels (1-6) kick off Saturday at 7 p.m. at Bear Mountain Stadium in Langford. Tickets will be available at the gate.
