Third time’s a charm for CBMS Lady Drifters

For the community of Colonial Beach, they are truly a ray sunshine. On Wednesday at the Drifterdome, the Colonial Beach Middle School girls basketball team accomplished the memorable feat of winning their third Northern Neck District Championship in row by defeating the Northumberland Indians, 46-25.

“We started out with a earthquake, and later at the beginning of school we had a hurricane that brought flash floods,” Colonial Beach Elementary School Principal Julia Britt said. “This team kept our spirits up by consistently winning, and this championship was something for everyone to look forward too.”

The Drifters withstood a potent Indian attack led by Rajaa Sheloazz, who scored 23 points, while scoring over 50% at

CB Drifters battle Indians down to wire

Now that the Drifters’ (2-4, 3-5) playoff hopes are no longer a certainty, their fate hinges on the outcome of Saturday’s away game against Lancaster.

The 22-20-loss against Northumberland (5-3, 5-3) on “Senior Night” changed the entire sweet 16-playoff scenario. Instead of the Drifters playing for home-field advantage, they are literally playing for their post-season life as they take the field at 2 p.m., on Saturday, against the host Red Devils.

Last season, Lancaster defeated the Colonial Beach 29-28. With a stacked deck and uphill climb facing them, the Drifters are set for another barnburner type of gridiron brawl against a foe that

CB Drifters stay alive in post-season playoff hunt

At Monroe Park in Colonial Beach, it was time for a celebration on Friday. Whether it was the crowning of Kiante Dickerson and Carley Graves as the homecoming king and queen, or the 14-7 victory over division rival, Essex (3-4, 2-2), life could not have been better for a Drifters fan. The festive occasion also attracted Drifter alumni, and curious scouts from opposing teams.

Possibly the most important reason for the celebrations is that the win will give the Drifters the opportunity to stay in the

Drifters corral King & Queen Royal Tigers

On Monday night, in front of a captive audience, the Drifters (2-2) defeated King & Queen (1-3), 32-12. After a tough loss to Sussex Central last week, the Drifters redeemed themselves on both sides of the ball. Whether it was another banner rushing night by running back Dion Gonzalez or a game-changing interception by Tim McDowney, the Black & Gold left no doubt that they are a true competitor in the Northern Neck Division.

Sussex Central Tigers slip past CB Drifters

Last Friday at Monroe Park, it was a first quarter shootout as the Drifters (1-2) fought a brave battle against Region-A rivals Sussex Central (2-0). Although the “Black & Gold” led for three quarters, the Tigers reached deep within their physicality to pull out a hard-fought battle and defeat the Drifters 28-21.

Darren Curley led the Tigers with 64 yards on 16 carries, including a 12-yard touchdown
