King George Foxes are still alive in playoff hunt

After narrowly defeating the Knights 34-28, the Foxes are still in the playoff hunt. For their part, the Knights did not play like a winless 0-8 overall team. In fact, they bravely fought back and rallied in the second half to take a temporary lead, only to have the Foxes foil their wishful upset with solid defensive effort in the final minute of the game.
With only two games remaining in the season, the million-dollar question that most Fox fans are asking is there any possibility of a playoff showing for King George? The answer might surprise you, especially when you consider that the Foxes are in sixth place after ending a three-game victory drought. At 2-3, 4-4, the Foxes have a remote chance of participating in the Regional playoffs provided certain events take place. Under the umbrella of being in Division IV, the Foxes must win the remainder of their regular season games (James Monroe, Caroline).

Chancellor Chargers foil KG Foxes homecoming

 

Fox varsity wide receiver Kelsey Monroe (#14) overcomes several Charger tacklers for crucial yardage.

It was an epic Battlefield District varsity football game that will be remembered for years to come. After a dominating first half by Chancellor, the Foxes rallied back to come within two points of winning their homecoming football game. With 5.4 seconds left on the clock, Chancellor’s interior line rose to the occasion and blocked a field goal attempt by King George kicker Steven Cocke.

Foxes rally past Cougars in barn-burner

altThe Foxes’ (1-0, 3-1) latest 43-28 win over Battlefield District rival Courtland (0-1, 0-4) on Friday night at their home field, “The Pit,” is a solid indication that they are unquestionably for real. The victory propels the Foxes into a second place tie with James Monroe (1-0, 3-1), and a showdown with division leading Eastern View (2-0, 3-1).
The Foxes travel to play the Cyclones on Friday, Oct. 9 — game time is 7:30 p.m. The Cyclones are known for their offensive attack; most recently they defeated Chancellor (0-1, 2-2) 39-27.  King George will need everything, including the kitchen sink, when they battle the suffocating Cyclone defense.

Foxes defense, special teams clip Eagles

The line to get into “The Pit” to witness the last time the Washington & Lee Eagles would play the King George Foxes in the notorious stadium was longer than a football field and five wide.  This game is a game everyone marks down on the calendar once the schedule comes out, mainly because it’s the first game, but more importantly it is King George vs. Washington & Lee. 
The game, which seemed competitive for the first quarter, quickly changed into a game of miscues for Washington & Lee and a game of opportunities to take advantage of for King George.  Midway through the second quarter, return man Bryan Burrell couldn’t control the punt and fumbled it where a pack of Foxes were waiting.  After a scramble that seemed to
