CB Drifters shut-out Rappahannock Raiders, 10-0

The Drifters are back! After disposing of Charles City (62-8), and Rappahannock (10-0), the Drifters have now turned their season around, and could conceivably win the 1A, 43 conference. Their recent victory over Rappahannock (5-1) has put them in the driver’s seat.


Along with gathering valuable VHSL playoff power points, they defeated the third best team in single-A football in 2012. Just when many fans may have thrown in the towel after losing three games in a row, the Black & Gold are back, with a renewed vision to finish the season on top.

The win improved the Drifters record to 3-3 overall, and 1-0 1-A conference. On Friday, the Drifters have an opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the conference with a win over the visiting Essex Trojans (5-1 overall, 1-0 conference). Elated with his team’s resilience, Drifter varsity football head coach Scott Foster said, “We knew we had a big challenge in front of us facing a 5-0 team that was number three in the state for single-A football.”

After hours of preparation, the Drifters were ready for the Raiders. “We practiced hard all week long, and studied their offense. We went down there, and executed our game plan very well,” Foster said.

While the Drifters iron-man defense limited the Raiders rushing attack to 23 yards, Nick Graves connected with Shamar Shanks for a 54-yard touchdown. Drifter offensive work-horse, Lamar Lucas pounded out 78 yards on the ground rushing. The Drifters defense also contributed to forcing two fumbles.

“We basically played the game protecting the lead, and preached not to turn over the ball in wet conditions,” Foster said.

With a small depth core, and inclement weather conditions, the Drifters defied the odds and beat one of the best teams in the area. “Football is football, it’s meant to be played in these types of conditions,” Foster said.
Along with mending a few wounds, the Drifters are making preparations to play Essex on Friday. “We have no doubt that we have our hands full with Essex on Friday,” Foster said. “They are the class of single-A football, and they are the team to beat. We have to practice hard, and put a good team on the field if we want a chance to win that game.”
