March 28th from 12-3pm
The Baside Raiders prove that youth football is alive and well in N.Y.C . Celebrating their 30th anniversary the Raider Pee Wee team composed of 11 &12 year olds defeated their long time rivals, the Brooklyn Skyhawks 38 - 0 to win the N.Y.C.Y.F.L Super Bowl on Nov 30, 2014.
This win capped off a stellar season for the Raider Pee Wee team, going undefeated in all games. The Pee Wee's Offense pounded out touchdowns with an unstoppable running and passing game totaling 400 points for the season. But even more impressive was their Defense, who frustrated every opponent with a shutout and finished the season with 0 points scored against them. Quite an accomplishment by any standard!
For this we congratulate the Pee Wee players and coaches on a great Championship season.
In 2014 the Bayside Raiders teams showed great determination and perseverance. On Sunday February 22nd we will be holding our annual Award's Breakfast at St. Francis Prep High School to commemorate all the hard work and effort our players and coaching staff.
The Bayside Raider Intermediate Team (15-17 Year Old Division) completed a perfect 10-0 season by defeating the Van Cortland Titans in the NYCYFL Championship Game 22-6.
The game was played at South Shore High School in front of a throng of Raider Nation Fans who definitely made their presence known.
Bayside opened by scoring in the first half with a ten yard TD pass from QB Donald Britton to Nick Arizmendi. This was the first of two touchdowns between the two. The second score coming in the third quarter on a bullet pass over the middle from 15 yards out.
Entering the fourth quarter leading 14-0, the Raider Intermediate Defense continued to excel led by Linebacker Tyriek Holland and Defensive End Dante Thomas.
With just under six minutes to play in the game, it was only fitting that league MVP Jonathan Mercado (100+ yards rushing) finish off the scoring with a five yard touchdown run to make it 22-0. Running behind a stellar performance by the Offensive Line, the Raiders were on their way to the 2014 NYCYFL Championship and a great ending to the Bayside Raiders 30th Anniversary Year.
