Drifters beat Foxes on Farinet's 3 pointer at the Buzzer

Dylan Farinet hit a three-pointer as time expired to lift Colonial Beach over King George 66-63. Farinet's heroics capped a 14-1 run to end the game, where the Drifters scored 34 points in the fourth quarter. Down 49-32 going into the fourth quarter, the Beach slowly began to chip away at the Foxes. With the Foxes ahead, 54-44 with 3 minutes to play, the Drifters started their full-court-pressure. Led by Farinet, Travis Cundiff, Randy Ruczynski and Paul Roberson, the home team was able to turn the Foxes over on numerous occasions.
The Drifters got their first lead of the game at 63-62, with just 30 seconds left in the game. D.J. Lewis, who led all scorers with 29 points, was fouled with 8 seconds left. He hit one of two free throws to tie the game.
Farinet then took the inbounds pass, beat a double team down the sideline, went by one more defender, and pulled up for the winning shot. As the shot went through the nets, the crowd went crazy, emptying onto the floor, and swarming the senior guard.
Farinet led the Drifters with 25 points. Cundiff had 18 points. Ruczynski, Roberson, and junior Mike Jackson scored six points apiece.
Colonial Beach improves to 4-6 on the season with the win. The Drifters will host Washington and Lee in a Northern Neck District game Tuesday.

Muhammad’s Boxing and Martial Arts Center soars

a fitness center for the whole family

Are you ready to take control of your health and well being, and relieve the stress of the daily routine of work?  Muhammad’s Boxing and Martial Arts Center (MBMAC) could be the answer the public has been looking for. Punching your way into shape, and starting a new and enriching lifestyle that will ultimately lead you to mental and physical self-improvement, may be the answer many fitness enthusiasts have been looking for.
Located on the main stretch of the business end of King George at 7979 Kings Highway, the center is easy to find. For the past seven months, men and women of all ages have embraced the idea of staying in shape, while learning the finer aspects of self-defense.
Owner and MBMAC instructor Yusuf Muhammad’s short-range business goal was to educate the public on the science of staying in shape while focusing on self-defense. “It was important to me that I make my facility inviting for everybody.” Muhammad said. “I didn’t want the old gym images of spit buckets and people using foul language. I want my clients to be comfortable here, and I want to keep it clean. I demand that everybody respect one another.”
Noteworthy as an accomplished martial arts expert, Muhammad’s qualifications speak volumes about his dedication. He spent 35 years as a law enforcement officer, which included being police chief in the city of Glen Arden, Md. For 10 years, he served as a defensive tactics officer, where he trained police officers on the basics and advanced officer training levels.

Montrossity II


Washington and Lee’s second annual Montrossity Wrestling Invitational provided an excellent day of wrestling in Montross despite wintry weather and a uniquely disappointing visit from a solid wrestling squad by way of New Jersey.  AAA power Brooke Point won the tournament, following in the footsteps of 2008 Montrossity champions and their Commonwealth District rival Mountain View.  
Defending AAA state champions Colonial Forge sent a “B” team, which placed a close second and home standing W&L took the third spot.
