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.

An Ey for excellence

His legacy is written in the history books of Drifter lore. Pat Ey played with a special group of athletes that made the transition from independent schools to the Virginia High School League (VHSL). Ey’s lineman teammates featured stars including the likes of Steven Taylor, Deshawn Viers, Zach Peltola and Nate Galloway. They helped to open the running lanes for legendssuch as Drifter all-time rushing leader Brandon Foster, Brent Steffey, Tim Wilson and Terry Bushrod. His formidable presence as an offensive tackle and defensive lineman left an indelible dent in the game plans of rival teams from across the area.
Most recently the soft-spoken scholar has returned to his beloved community of Colonial Beach to pursue a degree online in education. Prior to returning to the area, he attended and played football for Christopher Newport University. The small town atmosphere associated with Colonial Beach seems to agree with Ey.

KGLL seniors capture crown

 

KGLL SENIOR SOFTBALL TEAM WINS DISTRICT 15 CHAMPIONSHIP 

Saturday was a great day for softball with the sun brightly shining and the temps in the mid-seventies.  It was the perfect setting for the District 15 Little League Senior Softball Championship game.
King George headed to Warsaw to face the Richmond County All-Stars.  This game had been delayed for about three weeks but both teams were raring to go.  King George entered the game undefeated in District play while RC had lost one game to KG.  Richmond County would have to win two consecutive games to grab the Champion’s Banner while King George could lock it up with a first game victory.
King George started fast, hitting three singles and scoring their first run on a passed ball.  It looked like it would be a big inning but the next batter hit into a double play and the following batter struck out.  The second inning looked promising with two runners on base and only one out.  It was not to be as KG was held to just one run with Natalie McGregor recording an RBI on a ground out.  King George was leading 2 to 0.  The third inning looked like it would result in more runs with three singles but, again, KG scored only one run when Courtney Beck singled for an RBI.  KG 3, RC 0.
In the first two innings, Richmond County was held hitless.  They managed two hits in the third inning but again failed to score any runs.

Hydro-Turf watercraft racers battle for the APBA Watercross bragging rights

Colonial Beach hosts newest 2010 Hydro-Turf APBA Watercross national tour site

With 25 turns around over 27 buoys in the Potomac River, professional and novice Jet Ski race enthusiasts gave watercrafts race fans the show of their lives. Last weekend, Colonial Beach took center stage as the 2010 Hydro-Turf APBA Watercross National Tour included the town as their newest featured tour attraction.
The featured race included the Pro Runabout competition, which was won by Dusting Farthing (men) and Amy Green (women) on both days of the event. Both racers are considered to among the best watercraft athletes in the country.
Other than the obvious bragging rights, as the winner of the competition, a $10,000 cash award and sizeable consolation awards were an incentive to finish first or at the top of the racer’s class.
