  • Lord, it was close

    Special to the Bedford Bulletin

     

    On a cold and rain-drenched Friday night Staunton River met Blue Ridge District foe Lord Botetourt in Daleville. Those hardy enough to withstand the condition witnessed what Botetourt Head Coach Jamie Harless told the Eagles was, “…one helluva game.”

  • Still perfect

     

    Midway through the first quarter, the Jefferson Forest offense had gained a total of 33 yards.

    Yet, the Cavs held a 21-point lead over E.C. Glass.

    That was but one oddity during an appropriately-themed Halloween night game, won by JF, 55-14.

    The three touchdowns were fueled by three events not directly related to the JF offensive unit.

    -After a three-and-out to open the game, Glass muffed a punt attempt.  JF took over on the 11 yard line and scored two plays later on a Jason Ayers QB sneak.

  • Minutemen roll; top Amherst

     

    They're certainly not going to impress you with the size of their roster.

    Therefore, they have to do it with the size of their hearts.

    Liberty's football crew picked up another victory, over Seminole foe Amherst, tending to business on the Lancers' turf, 37-20.

    The team with the incredible shrinking roster turned up the heat in the second half to run away from the speedy Amherstians.

  • Game of the century

     

    We're calling it "The Game of the Century."

    And, by "century," we don't mean the 14 years that have ticked off since we added a "2" to the front of our years.

    We mean the one hundred years, running from 1914 to this year.

    When Jefferson Forest visits the Liberty gridiron this year, it will be the biggest in-county matchup since, well, since forever.

    At least on the football field.

    And, since football is king in these parts, our logic is pretty sound here.
