CB Drifters offense kicks into high gear during playoffs

20121114spcb1

Drifters head coach Scott Foster has led his team to the first round of the Eastern Section, Division 1 playoffs two years in a row. Although last year’s (6-3, 7-4) first round game ended in a 63-24 loss to Lunenburg Central (8-1, 10-1), he is optimistic that this season’s results will favor the black & gold. “They are a very good team,” Foster said. “They are ranked number three for a reason. We have to bring our best if we are to compete with them.”
After Friday’s win over Lancaster, the Drifters will travel to play Central Lunenburg, on Friday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m.


Both Colonial Beach and Central Lunenburg are coming off of overwhelming wins. While the Drifters dominated Lancaster (40-14) for the second time this season, the Chargers crushed Middlesex 61-12. “I went into the game, nervous playing them (Lancaster) the second time this season, because we had beaten them 66-36,” Foster said. “Also, we were coming off a big win against Washington & Lee (12-0). I was a little worried about being too confident coming into a playoff game with very little experience.”
Not only did the Drifters respond, but also they dominated on both sides of the ball for four straight quarters. At one point in the third quarter, the host Drifters led 40-0. Drifter quarterback Nick Graves spearheaded his team to 454 yards in total yardage.
In the first quarter, Graves scored two touchdowns, while teammate Shamar Shanks scored one to give the Drifters a 24-0 lead. Later in the second quarter, Tim McDowney completed a 16-yard pass to Shanks to give the black & gold a 32-0 halftime lead.
Along with Dion Gonzalez scoring from 26-yards out, and a two-point conversion from fullback Josh Thomas, the Drifters were comfortably ahead 40-0 in the third quarter.
As for the Lancaster no-huddle, run and shoot offense, they managed to score two touchdowns, courtesy of Kedrick Lee to C. Turner, and a 79-yard fumble recovery run by Ricky Gibson.
Overall, the Drifters have molded into a solid football team that has consistently delivered a balanced attack during the latter part of the season. “The offensive line over the last few weeks has blocked really well,” Foster said. “Defensively we had better coverage from our defensive backs, and we’ve tackled really well—which has turned our season around.”
On the other side of the post season playoffs, Northern Neck rival Washington & Lee lost to East Rockingham, 35-7.
