Eagles and Drifters clash at Monroe Park

For the fourth time in 14 games between Colonial Beach and their cross-town archrival and fellow Northern Neck foe Washington & Lee, fans were treated to a memorable gridiron barnburner. In the end, the Eagles (3-2, 6-4) prevailed over the Drifters (3-2, 6-4), 41-28; however, the Drifters will continue to forge ahead while the Eagles will gear up with a talented cast of underclassmen for the 2011 season.


“It’s tough dropping two games in a row to finish the regular season for two reasons: 1. We had the halftime lead in both games. 2. Going into playoffs you need momentum,” Drifter varsity head football coach Jeremy Jack said. “Right now we are making week-one mistakes: Not securing the ball and careless penalties. If we expect to be a legitimate contender we need to take care of the rock.”
Colonial Beach is the fourth seed in Region A Division I and will play Friday, Nov. 19 at Franklin City at the Armory. Colonial Beach leads the series 3-1 over Franklin. The last meeting between the two teams was the 2008 Region A Championship game that Franklin won 14-12 before going on to win the state title.
“The playoffs are exciting because you have to win to play next week — you can take nothing for granted,” Jack said. “I expect our team to rebound and play well this Friday — if we don’t we’ll be making early preparations for next year. It’s a whole new season and we’re in and intend to make some noise.”


Due to a loss to Essex, defeating Rappahannock 34-9 on Friday, and a 14-20 loss to the Trojans last week, the Eagles were eliminated from post-season play.
Eagles quarterback Bryan Burrell and running-back Marquis James both had banner games against the Drifters. While James rushed for 128 yards on 24 carries, including four touchdowns, Burrell rushed for 171 yards on 17 carries and one touchdown.
Eagle wide receiver Travis Seager finished the night with two catches for 25 yards and one touchdown.
As for the Drifters, Timmy Jackson accounted for 75 yards on 12 carries, and one touchdown. Dion Gonzales rushed for 47 yards on six carries and two touchdowns.
Kiante Dickerson passed for 121 yards and one touchdown. Josh Sanford caught two passes for 75 yards and one touchdown, while teammate Randy Ruczynski accounted for two receptions for 30 yards.
With the perennial bragging rights to a cross-town rivalry on the line, both teams are very respectful of each other’s program, but winning is what they both relish.
“You have to respect Coach Lewis and the Eagles — they came to play spoiler and they did just that,” Jack said “We definitely felt this was a game we could have won, but we let it slip through our fingers. It just seemed like once again when we needed to make the stop we didn’t, and they made a big play.”
