Braves cut down Weed; take on Raiders

Modoc’s varsity football team had no trouble beating the Weed Cougars Friday night in the Homecoming game 48-0. They host the Burney Raiders Friday night, in what should also be a lopsided affair.
Burney comes into the game following last Friday’s 48-0 loss to Mt. Shasta.
Modoc opened the Weed game leading 6-0 in the first period and by half led 29-0. They added 13 points in the third and six in the fourth.
The Braves have Burney here and then Mt. Shasta the next week, setting up what coach Shaun Wood believes will be the title game against Fall River there on Nov. 7.
JVs win 30-0
The Braves junior varsity also blanked Weed 30-0, leading 16-0 at the half and added eight in the third period and six in the fourth.
Budmark doesn’t feel Burney will be much tougher than Weed, but wants his players to be focused.
