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.

The Drifters (4-3, 4-4) are scratching and clawing their way into a potential Regional playoff berth. After two losses in a row to Rappahannock and Essex, the Drifters were not ready to throw in the towel for the 2012 season.
Not only did they dominate Northumberland (1-7, 2-7) offensively (51-26), but also they did it the hard way, by rushing for 505 yards on 48 carries. Prior to the Northumberland win, the Drifters were winless in the Northern Neck District.
