The White River Raptors sixth-grade football team finished its regular season with a perfect 8-0 record, crushing most opponents by a wide margin.

The team plays in the Greater Puget Sound Youth Football League and, throughout the season, demolished teams from Tacoma, Federal Way, Enumclaw, Sumner and Parkland.

The squad – consisting of players from all over the Plateau – piled up 341 points in its eight games while allowing just 50. The only close contest was a 20-14 victory in mid-September over the Federal Way Hawks. On five occasions, the Raptors won by 40 points or more.

With the perfect regular season under their belts, the Raptors headed into the GPSYFL playoffs, defeating the UTYA Tigers 46-6 Saturday. They will take on Federal Way this weekend in round two.
