  • Golden Eagles Soar Past Cave Spring

    The cold did not stop the Staunton River Golden Eagles from soaring high over the Cave Spring Knights. The Golden Eagles scored 48 points in the first half en route to a 56-21 victory.
     

    T.J. Tester made the first mark on the scoreboard with a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown. Kalip Jones was next to find the end zone on a 2-yard run making the score 12-0. Tester scored the next two touchdowns on a 10-yard run and a 29-yard run. Tester finished with four touchdowns on the night, three offensive and one defensive.
     

  • The Bruins Prove too Much to Handle for the Cavaliers

    It had been over 27 years since the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers and Blacksburg Bruins had met face to face on the gridiron. On Nov. 10 they snapped that streak meeting in the first round of the Group 4A VHSL playoffs–a game that was far less climatic than the Cavaliers were hoping for.
     

    Blacksburg scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and cruised to a 54-6 victory over the Cavaliers, ending Jefferson Forest's season.
     

  • Heritage Ends Liberty's Season

    The Liberty Minutemen found themselves on the wrong side of another fantastic performance from the Heritage Pioneers and running back Elijah Davis.
     

    Fog covered the field before the players came onto the field. Once the game started the fielded resembled the graveyard scene from "Remember the Titans" only instead of gravestones there was players.
     

    Heritage put their full offensive talent on display in a crushing 69-7 victory over Liberty, ending the Minutemen's season.
     

  • Jefferson Forest's Volleyball Season Comes to a Close

    The Jefferson Forest Cavaliers faced their biggest test yet when they took on the Blacksburg Bruins, literally. The Bruins had a number of players standing over six feet tall and two future NCAA Division I players.
     

    In the end the Bruins were too much to handle and took the Cavaliers down 3-1.
     

  • Jefferson Forest falls short in shootout with Heritage

    In the final game of the season it would have been easy for the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers (5-4) to roll over and lay down for the Heritage Pioneers (8-1). Considering the Cavaliers have eight two-way starters with season ending injuries and that Heritage's Elijah Davis plays football like its a video game, expectations may not have been very high for the Cavaliers.
     

  • Perfection Obtained

    Staunton River achieved one of its preseason goals–perfection. With a 60-13 beat down of the Patrick Henry Patriots the Golden Eagles are now a perfect 10-0 heading into the Region 3D playoffs.
     

    This is the first time in school history that the Golden Eagles have finished 10-0 in the regular season.
     

    "I thought this was the most complete game we've played this season," Head Coach Chuck Poston said. "We were clicking on offense, defense and special teams."
     

  • Liberty can't hang on

    Liberty's mission was simple, finish the season with a win and guarantee a spot in the playoffs. The Minutemen had to go through the Rustburg Red Devils to accomplish that task.
     

    While Liberty was unable to come out victorious, falling 25-20, the Minutemen's season will be continuing with a berth in the Region 3C playoffs.
     

    On the first play from scrimmage Rustburg managed to jar the ball loose from the Minutemen. The Red Devils picked up the ball and took it in for a touchdown to go up 6-0.
     

  • Bees Swarm the Cavaliers

    The injury bug continued to bite Jefferson Forest in a 42-21 loss against Seminole District rival the Brookville Bees on Oct. 20.

    Brookville won the coin toss and started the game with the ball. In less than two minutes they reached the Cavalier end zone on a 59-yard touchdown pass to take a quick 7-0 lead.

  • Hilltoppers down Minutemen

    The Liberty Minutemen traveled to Lynchburg's City Stadium to take on the E.C. Glass Hilltoppers. Liberty was the underdog entering the night and the Hilltoppers proved why they were the favorites in a 40-0 victory over the Minutemen on Oct. 20.

    Liberty held strong in the first quarter holding Glass scoreless while being unable to find the end zone themselves. The second quarter was a completely different story.

  • Liberty advances past E.C. Glass

    They started slow but when the Liberty Minutemen volleyball team all got on the same page they proved why they're one of the top seeds in the Seminole District tournament. Liberty started off the tournament with a 3-1 win over E.C. Glass on Oct. 23.
      

    The first set was a battle. Liberty jumped to a quick lead but the Hilltopper of E.C. Glass refused to let the lead get out of reach. Midway through the first set the Minutemen led 13-9 and the Hilltopper called a timeout to regroup.
