The Ravens junior varsity youth football team beat Modesto's Calvary Temple House Warriors up and down the field en route to a 46-6 road victory on Saturday, Sept. 7.

The win improved the local team’s record to 4-0.

"The offensive and defensive lines led the way in controlling the line of scrimmage," said Ravens coach Joe Powers.

Special teams also played a significant role, Powers added

Jack Grisel returned a kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown, while teammate Joseph McGarry added a 68-yard kickoff return for a TD and a 42-yard scoring run for the Ravens.

Garrett Schut, Miguel Alvarez and Caden Williams also added rushing touchdowns in the rout.

The win prepares the Ravens for their biggest test of the season — a road game against the Tri-City Bulldogs on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Le Grand High School.

"It will be a battle for first place (in the Trans-Valley Youth Football League)," Powers said. "Both teams come in undefeated."


The novice defense repeatedly brought fans to their feet, with Jared Rosas returning one interception 55 yards for a touchdown, and teammate Javier Huizar returning a fumble 45 yards for another score in the Ravens 40-6 win over the House Warriors.

"We wanted to take it to them early, and make it a grind the rest of the way," said Ravens coach James Perez. "It was another good day on both sides of the ball."

Rosas' day also included touchdown runs of 50 and 55 yards, while Huizar added a 45-yard scoring jaunt.

Leonardo Jiminez crossed the goal line following a 20-yard carry for the Ravens (4-0).

On defense, Anthony Barrera recorded an interception for the visiting team.

"Up and down the roster, these kids are stepping up and with very little drop off," Perez said.


House Warriors 37, Ravens 0
