Christopher Contreras did plenty with his sparse rushes for the Delta Rebels junior varsity football team against the host Modesto Vikings this past Saturday.
He racked up 206 yards and scored both of his team’s touchdowns on just six carries, and the defense recorded its third shutout of the season in the 12-0 victory. The Rebels improved to 6-2 in the Delta Youth Football League and is 4-2 in South Conference play.
The Sucher brothers led the charge defensively. Michael Sucher intercepted two passes and piled up six tackles, while Dylan had five tackles to go with a fumble recovery. Thomas Cann contributed seven tackles.
The Rebels next take on the Tracy Jr. Bulldogs this Saturday at East Union High. The junior novice game kicks off the day at 10 a.m.
