    Football is a game of chances and execution. The Golden Eagles had their chances against Franklin County but failed to execute on those chances.

    Staunton River had success moving the football and at one point had the ball inside Franklin County’s 5-yard line, trailing 14-0. The Golden Eagles put the ball on the turf, Franklin County recovered and would score on the following possession.

  • Football: Liberty drops third straight against LCA

    The game was within Liberty’s grasp nearly the entire night. Instead, the Minutemen walked off their home field with a dreary feeling, knowing that was a game they could have won.

    Liberty played, arguably, its best first half of the year on defense. A week after Liberty Christian Academy put up 40 on Jefferson Forest the Minutemen held the Bulldogs scoreless and mercilessly caused havoc in the Bulldog backfield.

    Tuesday, September 25 started as a relatively normal day for Nic Lawrence. Lawrence, a teacher at Liberty Middle School, was going about his day teaching when he got a visit from the principal and a few guests.

    This was no normal visit but rather a visit to inform Lawrence that he will be the Head Coach of the Liberty Lady Minutemen basketball team.

  • Football: Lord Botetourt takes down Staunton River

    By: Denton Day
    Sports Editor

    Following an elongated bye week – thanks, in part, to the threat of a hurricane that never hit the Bedford County area – Staunton River returned to face an offensive blitz from the Lord Botetourt Cavaliers.

    Lord Botetourt entered the game 3-2 fresh off a close, 27-24, loss against the Northside Vikings, the Blue Ridge District’s lone unbeaten team. Staunton River entered the game still in search of its first win.
