Drifters end season at Central Lunenburg

In spite of losing to the Central Lunenburg Chargers (11-1), in the second round of the Eastern Section, Division 1 football playoffs, the 2012 fall sports season has been good to Colonial Beach. “I was tough that we lost, but I think as a coach the game was more competitive than the 28-0 score,” Drifters head coach Scott Foster said.


With seconds remaining in the first half, the Drifters had their second opportunity to score inside the Charger five-yard line. However, to the Drifters dismay, the Chargers stopped them four inches short of the goal line before for the clock ran out. “If we had punched it in from there, we would have walked in at halftime, with a 7-7 tie,” Foster said.
The Chargers have haunted the Drifters since the first round of the 2012 playoffs, when they loss 63-24. In addition, the Chargers defeated the Drifters, 48-14.
“I was pleased with the effort in how my guys played on Friday night,” Foster said. “Of course, you love to win, but sometimes the other team is better than you. They seem to do the right things to win, and that is what happened Friday night.”
Lunenburg’s running game was in full force as Charger running back, Smith Dajour accounted for two touchdown runs of 6 and 7 yards. In the third and fourth quarter, Derrick Carpenter and Webb Jarron combined for two touchdowns to complete the Charger victory.
After the game, Foster reminded his players that their journey into the playoffs will be remembered for years to come “ I reminded them that I understood they wanted to win, and while the effort resulted in a loss, they need to look back on the season as a whole. Our kids played best football since the 2007-2008 seasons.”
During the season, the Drifters were picked by some media outlets to finish last, but they proved them wrong by finishing as a sixth seed in the playoffs, and second in the Northern Neck, with a record of 7-5. A number of historic milestones occurred, including the first time defeat of Lancaster and Washington & Lee.
Historically, the sports teams affiliated with Colonial Beach (enrollment less than 170) have had their backs to wall, facing larger schools. However, the Drifters have interesting tendency of defying the laws of reality, by consistently finishing with winning records in every conference they have competed in.
The Chargers will advance to play at Sussex (second seeded) next Saturday.
