    Warwick pounds Bethel 47-28 to enter the playoff picture

  • Bethel aiming for playoff bid in coach's absence

    Inhis second game as Bethel's acting head coach, Fabian Davis knows his team faces long odds. Phoebus has won 39 straight games, most in dominant fashion. And if the Bruins don't win tonight, they likely won't make the playoffs. But Davis, a former...

  • Phoebus' Micah Blakely chooses Navy, though most of the area signees choose FCS programs. Old Dominion picks up four PD players

  • Walker, Bruins break free, rip Menchville 42-14

    As Rijo Walker settled under a Menchville punt Thursday night, he knew a big return would help break open what was a tie game. He fielded the ball at his 28-yard line, cut back to the right about 10 yards later, juked a defender and then outran...
