This is the 4th time the Buckingham County Youth League Varsity team has opened the season agasint Amelia. The first two years the BCYL Varsity Knights have started off their season 0-1 after playing the Raiders at Home. Last season the Knights came away with a 20-13 victory to end the Amelia's win streak. Due the the change in the schedule for the Varsity teams in the JRSYSA, that was the only regular season game with Ameila. The two team met in the 2013 James River District Game as Buckingham defeat Amelia 24-6 to advance to the 2013 JRSYSA Super Bowl. But all of that was in the past. The Amelia Raiders and Buckingham Knights have played many games in the last 17 years and you don't know who will come out victorious until the clock is reading 00:00. Buckingham has the Super Bowls, but leading into this game, the Knights have been 1-2 against Amelia in the last three openers. Can the Varsity Knights even the score?
The Buckingham County Youth League Knights scored early in the 1st Quarter, in fact on their first drive of the game. Scoring a TD and a 1 pts conversion to take the early 7-0 lead. The next score came in the 2nd half as the BCYL Varsity team took a 14-0 lead at the half. The Raiders tighten their defense and kept the Knights from scoring in the 3rd, but the Knights "D" wouldn't allow the Raiders to thoughout the game. In the 4th period the Knights scored two more TDs to take the 28-0 victory.
The Buckingham Varsity will get ready to play the Dukes of Cumberland at Gene Dixon Park this upcoming weekend.
