    The stands filled to the brim on Saturday for the highly anticipated matchup between the Heritage Pioneers and the Staunton River Golden Eagles. Fans had to get to the stadium over two hours before kickoff to get a parking spot in the actual school parking lot and the grass surrounding the parking lot. The Pioneers were the only thing standing in the Golden Eagles way to get back to the Class 3 State Championship, where their season ended last season.
     

  • The NFL Lacks Identity

       

    For the first time in recent memory the NFL is in foreign territory, neck deep in water and struggling to keep its head above. The NFL has no identity.
     

    The league has become the unfortunate personification of Spongebob when he lost his name tag and then proceeded to lose his mind because it meant he had no identity.
        

    That is the current state of the NFL, although it’s handling it a tad better than Mr. Squarepants did, in the public eye at least.

    The first matchup of the season between the Liberty Minutemen and the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers saw no shortage of action. The Minutemen traveled to face the Cavaliers and thanks to a strong second half the Cavaliers came away with a 60-44 victory.
     

  • The NFL's Weird...

    With just five weeks to go in the NFL season we are soon going to go from watching 26-30 teams play each week to no more than eight. Because of this we will see a decrease of end zone celebrations, one of the best things that happen on a weekly basis on Sundays.
     

    I am a huge advocate for celebrations. I absolutely love them and I always have.
     

    When I first fell in love with football in the mid-2000’s it was celebrations galore after a touchdown.

  • Running On

    Just keep swimming is a popular phrase from the movie Finding Nemo, the Staunton River Golden Eagles have tweaked that slightly. Instead of swimming they’re running the football down opposing defense’s throats.
     

    That trend continued against Blue Ridge District rival Lord Botetourt. Staunton River rushed for nearly 500 yards in a 49-31 victory over the Cavaliers.
     

  • Ospreys finish second in...

    The Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy Ospreys finished second in the New River Tip-Off tournament held last Saturday.
        

    The tournament was hosted by Dayspring Christian Academy in Blacksburg.
        

  • Sports Dayl-ly: The NBA's...

    Admit it, you’re petty. We all are–some more than others– it’s  not a crime its just part of life.
        

    I’ll be the first to admit that I am irrationally petty at times. Even if you’re not like me in regards to being irrationally petty you’re probably like me in regards to enjoying watching other people be petty and disrespectful towards each other. This runs rampant in sports.

  • Staunton River's Offense...

    Ordinarily, scoring 47 points in a playoff game should be enough to walk away with a victory. The Northside Vikings learned that playing Staunton River is far from ordinary. The Golden Eagles put up a jaw dropping 72 points in a 72-47 victory over Northside.
     

    In the first quarter Staunton River did what they do best, run the football. With, statistically, the best runner in VHSL history in their backfield they had good reason to do so.
