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.

Whether it was another banner rushing night by running back Dion Gonzalez or a game-changing interception by Tim McDowney, the Black & Gold left no doubt that they are a true competitor in the Northern Neck Division.

Last Friday at Monroe Park, it was a first quarter shootout as the Drifters (1-2) fought a brave battle against Region-A rivals Sussex Central (2-0).
