When Rockbridge County visited Jefferson Forest in the second week of the season, the Wildcats looked like anything but a playoff team.
Rockbridge departed Bedford County with a 40-6 loss hung on it, in a breakout performance by the Cav offense. A stonewalling Forest defense had a lot to do with the outcome of that one.
Certainly, that game will weigh heavily on the minds of many fans of both teams.
If those fans are expecting a repeat, however, they should reconsider. Rockbridge is a different team, one bolstered by a fine six-game run that righted its ship.
