Mike Clements and Brek Hall, varsity defensive coaches, have their hands full preparing against Albemarle’s strong offensive team.

So it goes

    Fluvanna was helpless against Louisa’s backfield, led by Job Whalen (#24) and Trey Cherry (#32). The Lions finished with 383 rushing yards.

    After losing to Fluvanna two years in a row, the Lions dealt out a healthy dosage of payback on Friday night, dismantling the Flucos for a 48-16 victory. “There’s some redemption there to get that monkey off of our back,” Louisa head coach Mark Fischer said. “They had our number the past two years, and our kids responded.” “This feels great,” Louisa lineman Malik Johnson said. “We needed to get

  • Havoc at Homecoming: Lions trounce unbeaten Warriors

    Posted on October 16, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Despite the wet conditions, Trey Cherry and the rest of the Lions had a field day on Friday night. Cherry finished the night with 85 of the team’s 373 rushing yards. In total, seven different Lions scored in the team’s dominant win over Western Albemarle.

    The Western Albemarle Warriors entered Homecoming Night at The Jungle with a spotless 5-0 record on Friday, Oct. 10. Hours later, that mark looked as ragged as the team’s mud-and-grass stained jerseys. Behind a seemingly unstoppable offense and suffocating defense, the Lions trounced the Warriors 56-26 on Friday night in a lopsided contest that saw seven different Louisa players register a touchdown. “We just kept on working,” head coach Mark

  • Powhatan’s power too much for Louisa

    Quarterback Trey Cherry’s 20-yard touchdown run on the team’s first drive of the game was Louisa’s only points on the night.

    A game that began with such promise ended in bitter disappointment for the Louisa Lions football team on Friday night.
