Published 1:13 pm Thursday, October 1, 2015

Last Friday night left three teams in the winning column as Buckingham took a 70-27 win over Central Lunenburg, Fuqua snuck past Hampton Roads 14-6 and Prince Edward edged Bluestone 26-24. Cumberland unfortunately saw a 35-14 loss to Amelia.

Regardless of last week’s games, teams will be looking only to how they can defeat their newest opponents.

Buckingham will head to Bluestone for a 7 p.m. game against the Bluestone Barons. Both teams remain in the lower standings of the James River District and will be looking to climb up the ladder with a win. Bluestone’s defense will have to work hard to attempt to match the Knights’ level.


Cumberland has suffered two straight losses and is determined to turn around its luck this week. They will certainly not be leaving without a fight.

The Dukes unleashed their secret weapon last week as regular standout defensive player Dakoda Boyles stepped up to the plate on offense and scored touchdown.

Cumberland will surely use the versatile player in their plans to defeat Victoria Christian.


The Falcons have proven to be unbeatable this season as they improved to 4-0 after their Hampton Roads win and hold the first-place ranking in the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) Division IV standings. However, this week won’t be as easy of a stroll for Fuqua. The Falcons will be hosting Isle of Wight, who they only beat by one point last season. The Chargers will be looking to take revenge on Fuqua.

Prince Edward vs. GOOCHLAND

Although Prince Edward will be taking on a tough Goochland team, they might fare out nicer than expected. Goochland lost momentum in its last game against Randolph-Henry and the Statesmen held a lead during halftime. The Bulldogs are not as strong as last season and PE will try to capitalize on that.
