The 4-0 Buckingham County Youth League Varsity team travelled the 2 hour trip to Emporia to play the 4-0 Renegades. Just like the Knights Varsity teams being in 1st place in the James River District, the Renegades are in 1st place in the Southside District. The day started off perfect, but a light rain started just before the half and ended before the third quarter. Still a good day for some football.
In the beginning of the game, it looked as if both teams were flexing to see who was the strongest. The Knights made some plays on offense and look to move the ball pretty well. But the Defense of the Renegades wouldn't give them a break. The Knights and Renegades varsity settled for a 0-0 score at the half. In the third period, the Renegades' offense punched through the Knights defense to take a 6-0 lead. The Knights defense came back with a fumble recovery and touchdown to tie the game in the 4th quarter. With the score 6-6 at the end of the game brought up the varsity' first "Sudden Death" of the season.
In the second Overtime period, the Renegades offense punched through the Knights defense to take the 12-6 victory. The 4-1 BCYL Varsity Knights will concentrate on a good Amelia team tomorrow at Gene Dixon Park. Game start around 1:00 pm.
