Northern Neck Rivermen shutout New Jersey Broncos

Three times is a charm for the Northern Neck Rivermen. On Saturday evening, after splitting victories during the regular season, the Rivermen shutout the New Jersey Broncos, 17-0 at Monroe Park, in Colonial Beach.
The victory was anything but pretty, but when it comes down to it, a win is a win — and the Rivermen will advance into the championship round against defending MDFL champion, Arbutus Big Red, on Saturday, Oct. 16, at Arbutus Middle School, in Arbutus, Md. The winner of the MDFL North Championship will play the winner of the MDFL South champions.
Hard hitting, personal fouls, turnovers and a war of words clearly defined the game from start to finish. However the Rivermen overcame seven turnovers to foil the hopes of the Broncos with their brand of special teams, and an interception that led to a touchdown. On defense, the Rivermen were solid, as they yielded only 111 yards of total offense that included three sacks and two interceptions. The buildup to a long rivalry between the two teams has already been set in stone.
On the opening kick-off, Aaron Lewis, busted through the seams of the Broncos defense for a 95-yard touchdown. After the dusk settled for the remaining part of the first and second quarter, the game became a defensive stalemate, with the Rivermen leading 7-0. Ball control and time of possession were critical factors in the Rivermen’s ability to stifle the Broncos offensive game plan.
On the second possession of the fourth quarter, the Rivermen drove 71 yards deep into Bronco territory, where Trey Hamlet extended the Rivermen lead to 10-0 with a 26-yard field goal. On the ensuing Bronco possession, the Rivermen sealed the victory when Gary Nelson picked off a Bronco pass for 43-yard touchdown.

CB Drifters corral George Mason Mustangs

altThe Drifters varsity football team’s nearly flawless performance last Friday night against George Mason may potentially be a glimpse into the future. Senior running back Timmy Jackson led the Drifters with a career high 10 carries for 153 yards that featured two touchdown runs and one touchdown pass.
With both sides of the ball working in concert, the Drifters pounded the Mustangs into submission 20-0 lead by halftime. The Drifters’ defense shut down the Mustangs’ offense, giving up one first down within the remaining minutes of the third quarter. The final score of 33-6 could be an indication of the younger players stepping up to make a difference in their program.

Goochland Bulldogs edge KG Foxes

Although the Goochland High School (2-1) varsity football 15-6 win over host King George (2-1) was not pretty by any stretch of the imagination, what counts is the victory in the win column.
The real heroes for the Bulldogs in Friday night’s gridiron war at the “Pit” was the offensive and defensive line. The impact of their workman-like performance impacted the Foxes’ ability to stop the run in the fourth quarter. David Mckenna led all Bulldogs rushers with 94 yards and a touchdown. The Bulldog defense accounted for two interceptions, courtesy of Mason Engel, and four sacks by various members of the defensive line.

Rivermen topple Arbutus Big Red

From the moment the teams stepped onto the field, the game was destined to be a war of wills. The Rivermen took a notch out of the defending Mason Dixon League (MDFL) champions and current No. 1 Arbutus Big Red’s (5-1) once undefeated belt to improve their second place standing at 4-2, with 9-7 victory.
With less than 2 minutes remaining in the game, the Rivermen’s defense proved its worth by foiling a potential scoring drive. The defensive style stalemate clash of the top two teams in the MDFL resulted in 202 total yards for the Big Red and 153 total yards for the host Rivermen.
Embracing their destiny as potential district champions, Rivermen head coach Dennis Cornwell said, “I was kind of speechless after the game — in the back of my mind I had a good feeling about last night, but at the same time, I knew we had a big hill to climb.”
Throughout the game, both teams seemingly never gave an inch; however, the Rivermen summoned their usual intestinal fortitude to prevail over their division rival in the remaining minutes of the game.
“Our guys are finally starting to buy into our game plan; if you play together, and you’re disciplined, and you play with heart, you will win every week,” Cornwell said.
