Drifters varsity recreation wins Superbowl Championship

It was rite of passage for future Northern Neck gridiron stars. On Saturday, at Caroline High School Cavalier stadium, the Colonial Beach Drifters varsity recreation team defeated Westmoreland Eagles, 37-22 to win the 2011 Rappahannock River  Varsity Superbowl. Lamar Lucas led the Drifters with three touchdowns, while A.J. Phillips and Mikey Mothershead scored one apiece. As for the Eagles, Jeremy Saunders, Jared Sumeil, and Cullin Bell scored touchdowns.

During the semi-finals, Colonial Beach defeated 2011 Superbowl winner Essex, while the Eagles overwhelmed Richmond County.

The top seeded Eagles defeated the second seeded Drifters a week earlier in the final regular season game of the season, 20-19. “The guys were upset about losing the game, but at the same time they were not mad at each other,” Drifter varsity head football coach Earl Payton said. “Rather than say we would have won if so and so did that, they pointed fingers at themselves and said this is what I am going to do help this team win.”
For most players who chose to continue to play football, they will continue to see their opposing Northern Neck neighbor on the high school level long after their recreation gridiron career is over. For fans, whether they are relatives or a sports enthusiast curious about the outcome of the game, cheering for recreation

Third time’s a charm for CBMS Lady Drifters

For the community of Colonial Beach, they are truly a ray sunshine. On Wednesday at the Drifterdome, the Colonial Beach Middle School girls basketball team accomplished the memorable feat of winning their third Northern Neck District Championship in row by defeating the Northumberland Indians, 46-25.

“We started out with a earthquake, and later at the beginning of school we had a hurricane that brought flash floods,” Colonial Beach Elementary School Principal Julia Britt said. “This team kept our spirits up by consistently winning, and this championship was something for everyone to look forward too.”

The Drifters withstood a potent Indian attack led by Rajaa Sheloazz, who scored 23 points, while scoring over 50% at

CB Drifters battle Indians down to wire

Now that the Drifters’ (2-4, 3-5) playoff hopes are no longer a certainty, their fate hinges on the outcome of Saturday’s away game against Lancaster.

The 22-20-loss against Northumberland (5-3, 5-3) on “Senior Night” changed the entire sweet 16-playoff scenario. Instead of the Drifters playing for home-field advantage, they are literally playing for their post-season life as they take the field at 2 p.m., on Saturday, against the host Red Devils.

Last season, Lancaster defeated the Colonial Beach 29-28. With a stacked deck and uphill climb facing them, the Drifters are set for another barnburner type of gridiron brawl against a foe that
