Gators Forfeit to the Knights
The Buckingham County Youth League Varsity Football team had a game scheduled with the Nottoway Gators for the Homecoming weekend, but due to the Gators not getting enough players to travel had to forfeit the game to Buckingham and called it in late on Friday. So the Knights will get ready for the Amelia Raiders tomorrow in the 2016 season finale'.
The BCYL Varsity will start their playoffs earlier than the other teams. Due to only six Varsity teams, there is only on league instead of the James River and Southside Districts. Here is the format for the playoffs for the Varsity teams.
