    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.

    Liberty was in desperate need of a big play. Aladdin Elroumy was chased out of the pocket by Heritage defenders. Antonio Dumire locked eyes with his quarterback and sprinted towards the end zone.

    Elroumy put the ball on a rope and connected with Dumire for a 24-yard touchdown to cut Heritage’s lead to 23-20 with 2:08 to play. Liberty was back in the game.
