Ravens Football Teams Shine In Wins Over Mount Vernon
On Sunday, September 20, the Rockaway Ravens football teams hosted the Mount Vernon Razorbacks.
The Mighty Mite division opened the day as the Ravens got a hard fought victory, 8-6. The Jr. Peewee division followed as the game ended 0-0.
The Ravens Jr. Midgets suffered their first lost of this season 21 to 12. The Ravens were down early in the game but fought back and showed the effort that has been within these young men for years.
The All-American division Ravens put on a spectacular display defeating their opponents 30 to 12. Their dazzling performance captivated spectators as the Ravens scored on long touchdown runs and also a touchdown return on special teams. It was football that was worth a ticket price.
The learning experience for these young men will strengthen them as tey face a tough opponent in the Springfield Rifles this upcoming weekend.
The Ravens are looking for 10 Peewee players (11 years old is the maximum age. Players must not weigh more than 131 pounds. For 12 year old players, the maximum weight must be 114 pounds). This is the final week to sign up.
There will be no extra charge in signing up. For more information, please contact President Dexter Archbold at 1-646-247-0066 or email dexter@rockaway ravenssports.com.
