Prince William Monarchs use big plays to defeat Northern Neck Rivermen

altThe long-awaited home debut of Northern Neck Rivermen (0-2) at Monroe Park in Colonial Beach is now history. The defending Regional American Football League Prince William Monarchs (2-0) defeated the Rivermen 19-2. The Woodbridge-based, semi-pro team used three big plays and a stingy defense to overpower their Mid-Atlantic conference rivals.
While the Monarchs yielded one turnover, courtesy of a Wyndell Lewis interception, the Rivermen fell prey to seven turnovers (five fumbles, two interceptions).

King George Patriots attend Olympia Gymnastics Camp
What better way for an aspiring gymnast to reach her goals than to learn from an Olympic legend? From June 27 to July 1, 17 members of the King George Patriots gymnastics team traveled to Unique Sports Academy in Waldorf, Md., to attend the Olympia Gymnastics Camp, founded by one of the greatest gymnasts in Olympic history, Svetlana Boguinskaia.
Nine years ago, Boguinskaia created Olympia Gymnastics Camp — an organization devoted to teaching 6-18 year old gymnasts the proper techniques in the sport that has brought her fame and fortune.

Fredericksburg Falcons semi-pro fever

At first glance, the Fredericksburg Falcons appear to be invincible, and for good reason. Last season, the Falcons finished second behind the Virginia Crusaders, with a 8-5 overall record. The Crusaders is a major obstacle for the Falcons, as they have defeated the Falcons three seasons in a row in regular season play.
Thus far this season, the semi-pro team based at 401 River Road, in Fredericksburg is undefeated in preseason play.
The Falcons recently defeated the D.C. Chiefs 18-12 on the Chiefs' home field at Cardoza High School, in Washington, D.C. The Falcons scored on a fumble recovery 12-yard run by linebacker Geruard Shelton, an 8-yard run by tailback Darren Baker, and a 30-yard touchdown pass from Darren Baker to Mike Marshall.

Semi-pro football is alive and well at the Beach

As the old adage goes, “If you build they will come.” Stafford native and Colonial Beach resident Dennis Cornell’s latest football venture, the Northern Neck Rivermen, has attracted men from arena football to college football. Each athlete seeks a path or return to the days of old where fans complimented by teammates cheered their names at the end of a play.
Why would a perfectly healthy athlete sacrifice his body for the sake of football glory in a hostile environment, filled with violent collisions, while chasing the dream of one day playing for a professional football team? After coaching three semi-professional football teams in the last 10 years, Stafford graduate and Rivermen head football coach Dennis Corwell may be closer to the truth in his latest football franchise.
“Eighty percent of these men are playing because they love the game,” Cornwell said. “They want an opportunity to put the uniform back on again, and fulfill the team concept.”
