Buckingham Knights vs Emporia Renegades
The Buckingham County Youth League Football Program played their 2nd Home game this past weekend as they hosted the Emporia-Greenville Recreation Association Renegades from the Southside District. The early part of the day looked as if the game was going to get cancelled, but the rains and thunderstorms held off to make it a pretty good day for youth football.
The BCYL Knights went 1-4 in the games on Saturday against the EGRA Renegades with the Knight's Flag team being the only team with a victory. Seems strange going 1-4 of our BCYL program, but last season in the first meeting against the Renegades, the Knights Flag won their 5th game of the season while all of the tackled teams losing for the day. And in the last game of the season, the Renegades came to Gene Dixon Park making out with four wins and giving our Flag team their first Loss of the season.
Losing a non-conference game to Emporia in the regular season is pretty normal for Buckingham. However, all of the BCYL teams are still in postion to make the playoffs after the first half of the season. According t recent history, it's normal for the Knights to prevail in the post season.
Game Summary will be posted to the teams Homepage soon.
