    By: Melanie Schumilas

    The first half of the County Clash between Liberty and Jefferson Forest could be summed up in one word: strange.

    The perplexing first half saw three kickoffs returned for touchdowns, three personal foul penalties and the Cavs blitzing to a 26-0 lead deep into the second quarter.

    The Bedford County foes met Sept. 22 at Liberty’s field. While Liberty’s crowd was amped, there was little to cheer about as the Minutemen (2-2) struggled and fell behind 40-13 in the first half.

  • Sports Day-ly: D.C.'s Curse

    By: Denton Day

    A few years ago I was not the kind of guy to believe in any sort of sports curse. The idea was silly to me.

    I still did not believe. Funny how your opinion can so easily change once something has a direct impact on you.
