Raiders to play for provincial title

Richmond Raiders will  play host to North Delta in the provincial nine-man Bantam football championship 2 p.m. Sunday at Minoru Park.

The Raiders reached the title game with a come-from-behind 12-7 win over Vancouver last weekend. Jacob Tubajon scored the winning points on a 10-yard touchdown with under five minutes to play.

It’s the first time Richmond has played for a provincial title since 2001 when the Midget Raiders won.

Richmond’s Atom Division team will also host a semifinal playoff versus North Delta at noon, while its Junior Bantam team kicks off the GSL league playoffs on the North Shore
