Colonial Beach Drifters overpower Surry Cougars

After an inauspicious beginning at the start of the season, the Drifters are back on track.
On Friday, at Monroe Park, the Drifters (2-3) varsity football team defeated the Surry Cougars (1-5), 28-8. The Drifter football machine was revving in all cylinders, as Travis Cundiff lifted his team to two touchdowns and 151 yards rushing on 13 carries. Cundiff’s teammate Dylan Farinet rumbled for 112 yards on 11 carries, including one touchdown. Farinet also passed for 33 yards, completing four of seven pass attempts. Cundiff is having a banner year with 683 yards on 59 carries, including eight touchdowns.

The supporting cast of Drifters also contributed to the victory with Timmy Jackson rushing for 41 yards on eight carries and Damien Eiras running for 31 yards on seven carries. On the reception end, Randy Ruczynski caught two key passes for 16 yards and one touchdown. As for the men in the trenches, the Drifters offensive line, they basically blasted the opposition off the ball consistently throughout the game.
Michael Jackson and Paul Roberson led the Drifter defense, limiting the Cougar big play efforts throughout most of the game.
E.J. Thomas led the Cougar offense with 14 carries for 78 yards. While the Drifters recorded 409 yards of total offense, Surry finished with 162 yards.
First quarter
The Cougars capitalized on a Drifter fumble early in the first quarter, with Dominic Cypress rumbling down the field for a 36-yard touchdown.
Less than a minute a half later, the Cougars recovered another Drifter fumble, only to be stifled by an overzealous Drifter defense. On the ensuing Drifter possession, Travis Cundiff busted up the gut of the Cougar interior line for a 64-yard touchdown.
Second quarter
Jackson started the second with a fumble recovery in the Cougar backfield. Six plays later, Farinet connected to Rucyznski on a 6-yard touchdown. After the two-point conversion, the Drifters lead, 16-8.
Later in the second quarter, the Drifters systematically marched 80 yards down the field for third touchdown of the game. After Roberson dragged four tacklers down to the 6 yard line, Cundiff found pay dirt on the following play from scrimmage.
Third quarter
With three minutes remaining in the third quarter, Farinet broke six tackles, before scoring from 36 yards out for the game’s final score (28-8).
Elated with his team’s consistent performance on both sides of the ball, Colonial Beach varsity head football coach Jeremy Jack said, “It was a good win — Surry is a quality opponent and certainly we’re excited about being back on track and putting two wins in the book.”
The fourth quarter resulted in no scoring for both teams.
Next Friday, the Drifters will travel to play Rappahannock for their Northern Neck season opener. Game time is 7 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, the Drifters junior varsity will play their first game of the season, as they host Rappahannock. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
