Wet, cold and an intense effort to hang on to the ball – that would describe any game Friday night, including the Friday Night Football game of the week featuring the Bruton Panthers against host Jamestown Eagles at James City County Stadium. But Jamestown (3-3, 2-3 BRD) took control early and delivered their second win in a row. Bruton (4-2, 3-2 BRD) was on the other side of the coin, losing their second in a row.
The miserable conditions couldn’t have been avoided for the players, but fans could have listened live on 92.3FM The Tide and 107.9 BACHfm to the game with the voice of the Tribe Jay Colley on the call, Matt Ridjaneck on color and Emily Gerdelman keeping statistics. Out-of-town fans can keep up, too; both The Tide and BACHfm are streaming live online. Click here for that link.
In other Bay Rivers District contests:
Tabb 22, Grafton 0 – Again, before the kickoff this game looked to be a close one with maybe Grafton having the edge. The Tigers (3-3, 3-2 BRD) must not have seen those statistics, coming on strong and pounding the Clippers (4-2, 3-3 BRD) to 15-0 at the half.
Lafayette 21, New Kent 7 – Soggy and cold conditions had the Lafayette Rams (3-3, 2-3 BRD) going to the ground game against the New Kent Trojans (0-6, 0-5 BRD), still looking for their first win.
Poquoson 33, Warhill 20 – The Islanders (4-2, 4-1 BRD) might have been looking forward to an easier game, given the Warhill Lions’ record (1-5, 0-6). But Warhill just kept coming back, working Poquoson mistakes to their advantage. It wasn’t enough for the win, but impressive all the same.
Smithfield 44, York 14 – It’s a three-way tie in for first place in the BRD, witih the Packers (5-1, 4-1 BRD) dominating the previously undefeated York (5-1, 4-1 BRD) at Bailey Field.
