King George Foxes deliver 24-0 Colonial Beach shutout

The Foxes and Drifters are football programs headed in two very different directions this season.  After the 24-0 shutout of the Drifters at King George County Stadium, the Foxes are living on cloud nine, as they spend their bye week with a 4-1 record.

However, life is a bit different for their “Black & Gold” gridiron brethren. After the loss, Colonial Beach is 1-4, but on a lighter note, they will face a winless Charles City team that is coming off a 56-0 defeat at the hands of the Franklin County Broncos. Earlier in the season, the Broncos defeated the Drifters 41-22. The schedule for both teams will be challenging for the remainder of the season.

In the first quarter, the visiting Drifters seemed to be on their way to an upset, as they recovered a Fox fumble on the first play of the game. Moments later, Nick Graves completed a 30-yard pass to Mike Mothershead. However, with the ball on the six-yard line, the Foxes defense held solid, stopping the Drifters on their next set of downs.

Although the Drifters forced the Foxes to punt out of their end-zone, they could not capitalize on the following set of plays inside the Foxes 35-yard line.

King George responded quickly on their ensuing possession. With 27 seconds left in the quarter, the Foxes’ offense finally awakened with a Jacoby White 71-yard touchdown. White later finished the game with 10 carries for 111 yards, and one touchdown.

The second quarter began with a defensive stalemate. After three exchanges of three and out drives, the Foxes marched 84 yards down the field for the second score of the game. Set up by a White 38-yard run, Markiece Johnson bolted into the end-zone from 10 yards out to give the Foxes a 14-0 lead.

Offensively, the Foxes dominated the half with 152 yards, while the Drifters totaled 50 yards.

After a roughing the passer penalty revived an otherwise-stalled Drifter drive, Lamar Lucas came within five yards of cutting the Fox lead in half. As fate would have it, the Foxes’ defense held firm, and prevented the Drifters for the third time from advancing beyond the four-yard line.

Midway into the fourth quarter, King George capitalized on a Drifter fumble, which set up an eight-yard Jaylan Brinson touchdown.

With 32 second left in the game, Fox place kicker, Jacob Perkins, cleared the uprights with a 27-yard field goal. Perkins’ kick sealed the final score, 24-0.
