SBCS put up a valiant effort in the final game of the 2017 season. The Ravens held the Oskaloosa Bears to only 12 total points, playing their strongest defense all year. Additional practice on defensive strategies and tackling in practice this week really paid off for SBCS. However, despite their success on defense, the Ravens were unable to score any points themselves, getting shut out for the first time this season. SBCS players were very happy with their efforts despite the 12-0 loss. The Ravens were outnumbered and outsized in every game of the season, and still managed to be competitive in most games, learning the game of football while having plenty of fun. Congratulations to the Ravens for their diligent efforts throughout the year. Great job, Ravens!
