Ravens End 2016 Season at Oskaloosa
In their final game of 2016, the SBCS Ravens fell to the Bears of Oskaloosa by a score of 46-14. The Bears overpowered the Ravens in both size and number, making it hard for the Ravens to get much offense going on the cool fall evening of football.
Despite several small injuries, all the Raven players were able to remain in the game, fighting alongside their teammates as they have done all season. This team, now being referred to as one of the toughest in SBCS history, went the distance in every game, playing every down on both sides of the ball, and competing well with very limited rest.
The Ravens finished the season at 3-4. The SBCS team brought a great deal of passion to their play, making them a fun team to watch throughout the season. Congratulations to the Raven football team on a great season!
Severe Storms Halt Chance for Raven Comeback in Second Half
The SBCS football team travelled to Winchester to take on the JCN Chargers on Thursday night with major thunderstorms looming in the distance. The game began as planned, but JCN quickly took control of the scoring, jumping out to a 22-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. The Ravens collaborated for several big plays on defense to keep the JCN score from building even more. SBCS put together a couple of solid drives in the second quarter, but came up just short of the end zone twice. The Chargers scored two more times in the second quarter, taking a 36-0 lead into halftime. With the impending storms, halftime was shortened, but even before play could begin again, lightening was spotted and the game entered a rain delay. After a few minutes, the game was called due to the forecasted storms over the next few hours.
The loss drops the Ravens to 3-3 on the season. SBCS will be back in action for the season finale next week at Oskaloosa. Game time is at 5:30pm. Good luck to the Ravens!
