  • 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.

  • 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.

    Yes I recognized that the Cubs had not won a World Series in a century and that Cleveland had not won a championship in over 50 years.

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

    The Liberty Minutemen started off well against powerhouse Amherst County on Oct. 13. Holding the Lancers to only seven points in the first quarter things were looking good for the Minutemen.

    That would quickly change. The Lancers scored their first touchdown by way of blocked punt and they fell on it in the Minutemen's end zone to end the quarter.

    Big plays hurt the Cavaliers once again in their matchup against rival E.C. Glass Oct. 13.

    "We got big played," Jefferson Forest Head Coach Bob Christmas said.

    The Cavaliers surrendered five big plays to the the Hilltoppers and that was too much to recover from. Jefferson Forest fell 57-36.

    Glass got out to a quick 14-8 lead and would continue to build on that throughout the first half. However, the Cavaliers still had their chances.

    All eyes were on the Staunton River Golden Eagles' prolific running back Grasyon Overstreet as he inched closer and closer to the VHSL career rushing title. Entering the game Overstreet was 200 yards short of the record.
