Braves trounce Raiders; Bears are next

Modoc’s varsity football team disarmed the Burney Raiders 61-12 Friday night and will face the Mt. Shasta Bears here this week.
“We played well and nearly everyone got quality playing time,” said coach Shaun Wood. “I expect the Mt. Shasta game to be a little closer. They have a huge line and a couple of good backs. They like to throw, so we’ll be ready for that. I think we’ll be able to handle them well.”
Right now in the Shasta Cascade League, Fall River leads at 8-0 and Modoc is second at 7-1. The last league game of the season might put the Braves and Bulldogs in a title fight in Fall River. But, Modoc has to get by the Bears first. The Bears are 2-6 in the SCL and lost to Etna last week 24-8.
“The Bears will be respectable, and I expect a decent game,” Wood said.
Modoc’s junior varsity team had no trouble with Burney beating them 32-12.
The Braves led 32-0 at halftime and got nearly every player in the second half. Burney managed to score six in the third and six in the fourth period.
“We played well defensively and offensively,” said coach Dominic Budmark. “There was no let down and I was pleased overall with the game. “I think we’ll be able to handle Mt. Shasta if we continue to work like we have.”
