www.journalpress.com THE JOURNAL Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 5 DRIFTERS RUN ALL OVER RED DEVILS Rack up 567 yards on the ground LEONARD BANKS Drifters with 593 total yards, 9 the Red Devils were limited to 53 yards of offense by a stingy Drifters' defense. Red Devils 4 On the second play of the game, Graves rushed 56 yards from scrimmage for the game's first touchdown. On the fol- lowing Colonial Beach drive, Ryan Thomas finished an l 1-play, 4:09- drive with a 23-yard touchdown. While Red Devil DeVante Steward's six-yard touchdown run helped cut the deficit to seven toward the final minutes of the first quarter, the mo- mentum favored the host Drifters. With four players handling the ball under the Drifters' patented single- wing offense, the Red Devils seemed flatfooted and bewildered through- out the second quarter. By the middle of the quarter, the Drifters' backfield easily found its way into the Red Dev- ils' end ,zone; Headley (two-yard run) and Graves (47-yard run) extended the lead to 29-8. Sparked by an interception from Thomas, the Drifters added a three- yard touchdown run courtesy of Headley. At halftime, the Drifters led Sports Editor In spite of cold temperatures and having to play Lancaster twice in three weeks, the Drifters (9-2) de- feated the Red Devils (5-6) in the first round of the 1A East Regional play- offs Nov. 14. Although the Northern Neck's top running back, Lamar Lucas, didn't play one down of offense, his supporting cast didn't miss a beat. "When you play a team twice, the advantage goes to them" Drifters' head coach Scott Foster said. "I had to remind my kids all week long that you Still have to play hard:' Nick Graves led the way with 14 carries for 162 yards and two touchdowns. Cameron Headley rushed for 119 yards on 16 carries, while also playing stellar defense. Dez'John Parker added 112 yards on seven carries, including two touchdowns. Ryan Thomas, Andria Turner and Anaiai Lewis combined for 148 yards on 13 carries. The Drifters accounted for 567 rushing yards on 54 carries, while the Red Devils rushed for 11 yards on 28 carries. While the Drifters finished The Coionial Beach defense wraps up a ball cartier during its impressive win versus Lancaster. 35-8. In spite of a fumble return for a 72- yard touchdown by Rasul Henderson, the attempts by Lancaster to manufacture a rally during the final Leonard Banks two quarters were futile. After Parker added a four-yard touchdown run with less than min- ute remaining in the third quarter, the few Lancaster fans who made the trip to Colonial Beach were no- where to be seen. Parker also scored the Drifters' final touchdown on a 43-yard run down the side of the field. Fast start helps Eagles roll past Panthers RICHARD LEGGITT Washington & Lees offense, which sputtered for the last two weeks after leading the Eagles to eight wins to open the season, reignited Nov. 14 in the first round of the VHSL playoffs. Eagles W&L roiled to a 9 49-0 halftimelead and went on to defeat the Charles City Panthers in Montross. Panthers The Eagles (9-2) will be at home Nov. 21 against powerful Parry McCleur of Buena Vista. The Fighting Blues are 11-0 after defeating Northumberland 48-12 in their first-round playoff game. The game this week will be an in- teresting twist on a 1979 state champi- onship game between W&L and Mc- Cleur. The Fighting Blues went into that game 11-3, and W&L was 13-0. McCleur won, 20-6. It was the last time the two schools played in foot- ball. :"It would be nice for us to turn the tables;' said W&L Athletic Direc- tor Malcolm Lewis. "But they will be tough. They are undefeated; they have agood running game, a good defense ' and a good tradition of winning. Each iweek in the playoffs, the teams get tougher, and you have to get better if you ate going to win:' i 'The W&L offense scored nine :touchdowns and finally may have found another top-flight running :back to help replace DJ. Weldon, who was lost for the year earlier in Ahe season when he suffered a broken !eg. Jaquan Bell, a 215-pound junior iback, powered for 78 yards on 10 i arries and scored a touchdown in his :'first extensive play of the season. !i:(W&Es speedy senior running back Thompson picked up 93 yards i eight carries and scored two touch- back, had seven tackles and two as- sists, while senior linebacker Keith Johnson had six tackles, including one for a loss and one for a quar- terback sack. Senior linebacker Linwood Newman had five tackles, an assist and a quarterback hurry. The W&L special teams also had one of its best nights in the Charles City game. Kicker Jake Daiger con- sistently backed up the Panthers with booming kickoffs, and he booted nine extra points. Defensive lineman Markeyse Thompson also .kicked a.. point after, and junior wide receiver Jarret Sumiel scored the first W&L touchdown of the game on a punt re- turn. "We played flawlessly in the first quarter," Lewis said. "We were relentless on defense, and we had penalty-free, good execution on offense. We put the game away early, and a lot of subs got to play. It was a very good win:' doyens, while flashy junior wide re- ceiver Kidanny DeJesus carried the ball four times for 88 yards and scored two touchdowns. W&Es Marion Pollard, moved to running back with Ball at fullback, ran for 31 yards and caught a 30-yard touchdown pass for a score, and 121- pound speedster Ramani Goode ran for 31 yards and scored a touchdown. Senior quarterback Treshaun Brown scored on a one-yard scamper in the first quarter and threw for a touchdown to Pollard' in the second quarter. The W&L defense was led by senior defensive lineman TreQuan Jackson, who appeared unstoppable and spent much of the night in the Panthers' backfield. Jackson had two tackles for a loss, caused two fumbles, had three i quarterback hurries and knocked down two Charles City pass attempts.
