     Poquoson’s path to Class 2 state semifinals gets rockier

[1] Poquoson’s road to the Class 2 state semifinals just got longer.

This is a literal and figurative observation. The previously unbeaten Islanders could probably have lost one regular-season game and still gotten the No. 1 seed in Region 2A over Goochland, which figures to finish the regular season undefeated.

That’s because the Islanders play mostly schools in Class 3 and 4, while Goochland plays smaller Class 1 and 2 schools that bring fewer ratings points. But the 20-0 loss to Smithfield on Friday makes a No. 1 seed a long-shot for the Islanders, who must now beat Lafayette on Oct. 27 to achieve it.

Unless Poquoson upsets Lafayette, Goochland will finish No. 1 in 2A. Should Poquoson and Goochland then meet in the regional final, as many expect, the game will be at Goochland, a nearly two-hour drive for the Islanders.

     Smithfield defense keys 20-0 win over previously unbeaten Poquoson

One measurement of the progress Smithfield High’s defense had made since giving up 61 points in the season-opening loss to Dinwiddie is the 43 points they’ve allowed in six games since.

The Packers’ terrific defensive play continued in a 20-0 win over previously unbeaten Poquoson in their Bay Rivers District game Friday at Poquoson Middle School. Led by Jameek Jordan and the defensive line, the Packers limited the Islanders to 137 yards (94 rushing on 31 carries).

“As much as everyone talks about our offense, our defense brings home the bacon,” Smithfield coach Reginald Chavis said. “I mean, it’s Smithfield.

     Poquoson church celebrates 200 years, keeps eyes forward

At 200 years old, Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Poquoson has a mix of old and new.

Each Sunday, there are three services — a contemporary service with newer songs, guitars and drums; a traditional service with liturgical music, an organ and choir in the main worship space; and a blended service that has a little bit of both.

“Churches have to practice both in memory and hope,” said Jim Earley, the church’s pastor for the last two years. “If you only look on the past, you become a museum. If you only look forward, you forget where you came from.”

Throughout the year, the church has celebrated its 200 years in Poquoson, and the main event happens this Sunday, with a large service at 11 a.m. and guest sermon from Youtha Hardman-Cromwell, a faculty member at the Wesley Seminary in Washington, D.C.

The land deed for Tabernacle Episcopal Methodist Church, the first iteration of Tabernacle, was recorded in court Oct. 20, 1817. The land cost $7.50.

Since then, Tabernacle has been through four buildings, a devastating fire and numerous renovations and additions. The church also saw floods and storms, the Civil War and the split of the Methodist Church over slavery in 1844 and the eventual reunification in 1939.

Rusty Sackett, the church’s director of ministry development, said Tabernacle has a mix of longtime attendees and newer members who came to Poquoson through the military or other major employers. Sackett came about 10 years ago through the Air Force.

As outreach, Sackett said members go on service trips, recently to Appalachia, where participants ranged from 14 to 84 years old. The church has food pantries, participates in the city food bank and hosts an annual block party.

“It’s the Methodist identity to be a part of the community,” Earley said.

Sunday’s celebration service will combine the church’s three services into one, featuring all the music ensembles at the church. Several former pastors and members of their families will attend as well.
