BCYL Go 3-0 in Prince Edward

The Buckingham County Youth League Knights travelled to Farmville this past weekend to play the Prince Edward-Farmville Youth Association Eagles. With only the Flag, Minors and Junior Varsity having games to play, the BCYL Varsity was off this weekend due to Prince Edward not being able to field a Varsity team for this 2014 season. So with the weather looking like it could have a down pour at any moment, with a little drizzle from time to time it was a pretty good day for youth football.

With the football teams getting geared up to enter the post season in the James River District, the Buckingham County Youth League had a solid weekend as all three teams finished the Eagles last weekend. Now the Knights have to concentrate on four tough teams from Emporia that will travel to Gene Dixon Park this upcoming weekend. This will mark the last game of the regular season, and will set the tone for our teams going into the playoffs.

This will also be the Buckingham County Youth League Homecoming. The festivities will start prior to the games at 12:00 noon this Saturday at Gene Dixon Park. Later at 2:00pm with be the start of the games between Buckingham and Emporia. So everyone come down to the park to show your support.

Look for game summary of BCYL at Prince Edward on the team's homepage.



BCYL 2-2 Against the Patriots

However, the call came in to end the Jamboree and cut the event short due to the constant rain fall at Nottoway High School. Now it's time to get with the 2014 regular season.
