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.

BCYL Varsity Handle the Patriots

The BCYL Varsity team hit the field

The Buckingham County Youth League Varsity Football team hosted the Charlotte County Patriots on Sunday afternoon instead of Saturday. Due to the excess amount of water left on the field after hurricane Matthew over the weekend.

During the last meeting between the Patriots, the BCYL Varsity Knights took a 21-2 beating at Randolph Henry High School the second game of the season. Now it was time for revenge!

The BCYL Knights came right down the field and scored a touchdown in the first quarter of the game. When switched to the defense side of the ball, the Patriots couldn't get close to the end zone to score. At the half, the Knights maintained their 7-0 lead. In the second half, the Knights scored TD's in the 3rd and also the 4th quarter of the game. While converting on all of their 1 point PAT for the day and continuing with the tough defense like in the first half of the game, the Knights defeated the Patriots 21-0.

The next game for the BCYL Varsity team will be at Gene Dixon Park next weekend. The Knights will host the Nottoway Gators for our Homecoming.


Knights vs Lightning...A Heck of a Battle

The Buckingham County Youth League Varsity Football team went into Lunenburg to go up against the first place Lightning. The undefeated Lunenburg Lightning has been rolling along the James River Southside Youth Sports Association League. With only six Varsity teams in the league, there is no James River or Southside District with the Varsity football teams.

With a short run, the BCYL Knights punch into the end zone with another TD.

The Buckingham County Youth League Knights with a good kick off pinned the Lightning back and with good defense kept them from making a first down. After a couple of plays, the Knights was up on the Lightning 6-0 early. Something Lunenburg haven't experienced this season...being down to another team.

The Lightning got back on track and added a TD of their own but converted on the PAT to take a 7-6 lead. Both teams scored another touchdown and both failed on the PAT as time ran out with Lunenburg remaining undefeated with a 13-12 victory.

The Buckingham County Youth League Knights will have a Bye next week and their next game will be at Gene Dixon Park as the Knights will host the Charlotte Patriots on Oct 8, 2016'



BCYL Varsity Knights takes 2nd Loss

BCYL Varsity Captains at Coin Toss.

The Buckingham County Youth League Varsity football team travel to Charlotte Courthouse for their official first Away game of the 2016 season. Last season the BCYL Varsity team split with the Patriots going 1-1 in the regular season. Defeating the Patriots 13-0 in the first game of the season and losing their last Home game 2-0 in a defensive battle. This season, how will the Knights do with a team that usually get up early to play?

The Charlotte Patriots Varsity football team jumped on the BCYL Knights early in the first quarter scoring on a long TD run to take the early 7-0 lead. Going into Halftime, the BCYL Knights was losing 21-0 against a Patriots team that was hard to stop.

The BCYL Varsity trying to make a comeback in the 2nd half of the game.

After the 2nd half of the game, the Knights made their 2nd half adjustment starting with a tighter defense by not allowing the Charlotte team to score anymore TDs. Later the Knights defensive stand put points on the board with a "Safety", and they started to put a pretty good drive together. But it was too late as the time ran out in the game as the Charlotte Patriots defeat the Knights 21-2.

Next week the Knights will travel to Nottoway to play the Gators and try to get their record to .500. Check listing for game information.
