    The first quarter of a Bedford County showdown between the Staunton River Golden Eagles and the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers on Dec. 20 placed all momentum on the Cavaliers side. But in the second half the Golden Eagles offense was too much as they took down the Cavaliers 72-58 to remain unbeaten.

    The Cavaliers moved the ball with excellent execution and hit their shots in the opening quarter.

  • Cavalier Boys with another...

    The Jefferson Forest Cavaliers jumped in the Jamerson YMCA pool to take on the Liberty Christian Academy Bulldogs and the E.C. Glass Hilltoppers.

    Glass’ girl’s team placed first with 92 points, Jefferson Forest followed that with 59 points and Liberty Christian Academy scored 18. The Cavaliers’ boy’s team cruised to a win scoring 111, Glass finished second with 43 points and Liberty Christian with 16 points.

    In the Ospreys return to the court following Thanksgiving break the team put forth a dominant performance against Parkway Christian Academy.

    Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy doubled the Eagles score in a 64-32 victory.

    The Ospreys were in control the entire game and showcased their defensive ability by holding the Eagles to single digit scoring in all four quarters.

  • Jefferson Forest's...

    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.

  • The Bruins Prove too Much to...

    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...

    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.

  • Cavaliers Crush Rustburg

    Jefferson Forest found itself back in the win column following a 56-20 win over the Rustburg Red Devils.

    The score was impressive for the Cavaliers considering the team is missing eight  two-way starters with three out of their four starting running backs out with injury. Perhaps more impressive is that the team piled up over 600 yards rushing despite all of those injuries.

    Three Cavaliers players finished with over 100 yards on the ground. Senior running back Hunter Millner led the team with 192 yards on 12 carries.

  • Golden Eagles roll over Fleming

    The Staunton River Golden Eagles took to the road to maintain their perfect season traveling to William Fleming to take on the Colonels.

    Calling the performance the Golden Eagles put on display 'dominant' might not do it justice. Staunton River's defense pitched a shutout and obliterated the Colonels 58-0 to move to 9-0 on the season.

    "Our goal is to be 1-0 at the end of every week," Head Coach Chuck Poston said.

  • Liberty can't hang on

    A strong start for the Liberty Minutemen against top-ranked Brookville quickly faded and the Minutemen were unable to hold on in a 49-21 loss to the Bees.

    Liberty opened the game with a surprise onside kick that they recovered to get their offense on the field first. Starting around midfield the Minutemen drove down the field taking almost five minutes off the clock.

    The drive was capped off with a nine-yard touchdown run from junior quarterback Alladdin Elroumy.
