  • Jefferson Forest runs over Magna...

    Jefferson Forest knocked off last years state 3A Champion, in what seemed like an effortless game by the Cavaliers.
        Magna Vista and Jefferson Forest faced off last Friday for the first time in 23 years.  The Warriors may want to wait another two decades before the two teams meet again.
        The Cavaliers proved to be less-than-gracious hosts, defeating Magna Vista 53-20.

  • Golden Eagles offense runs past...

        Going into the season, Coach Chuck Poston wanted Staunton River to build early season momentum.
        After three games, he has the Golden Eagles rolling downhill over opponents like an avalanche.
        The latest victory came at the expense of county rival Liberty, with River steamrolling the Minutemen 69-26.

  • Slow Start dooms M-Men

    For Rockbridge County, 13 was enough. For Liberty, 1-1 isn't good enough.
        The Wildcats broke their 13-game losing streak Friday night with a home victory against the Minutemen, 34-12.
        Liberty heads to Staunton River Friday to try and improve on its 1-1 mark this season.
        Liberty Coach Chris Watts will need to see better play “across the board,” from the M-Men.

  • Sports commentary: Final column

     

     

    This being my last column, I thought I’d share some of my more enjoyable moments from my nine years on the job.

        This column is my penultimate.
        That’s a fancy word of saying it’s my second-to-last column.  Second-to-last  section.  Second-to-last week on the job.
        So, why get all fancy-schmantzy with all of this penultimate business?
        Well, I’ve always tried to be informative and entertaining in this corner of the sports pages.

  • JF: Too 'Duff' to...

    By Mike Forster

        In the classic baseball movie The Natural the protagonist twice hits highly dramatic home runs.
        Leave it to Zach Duff to outshine Roy Hobbs.  Duff has smashed three hugely significant taters.  While Hobbs’s homers took place over the course of the season, Duff’s took place over the course of two weeks.  Best of all, while Hobbs is a fictitious character, Duff is the real deal.

  • Rainy days and Mondays

        Bedford County emerged from the first day of regional playoffs looking like a starting pitcher who’s seen better days.
        On Monday, Bedford teams amassed a record of two wins, six losses and two no-decisions.
        This is the “one-and-done” time of year.  Thus, Jefferson Forest’s boys’ and girls’ soccer, Liberty’s softball and girls’ soccer and Staunton River’s softball and boys’ soccer all saw their seasons come to an abrupt ending.
