Behind an explosive offense, the Ravens varsity youth football team never trailed and kept the Modesto Christian Kingsmen at a distance on its way to claiming a 49-40 road victory on Saturday, Oct. 19.

On the second play from scrimmage, Chris Garcia scored the first touchdown of the game on a 65-yard burst for the Ravens. Garcia also broke loose for a 40-yard TD scamper.
