  • The Greatest Game I Ever Saw...Kenneth Schofield

    The 2003 Great Falls football team was so good and so talent-laden, they could beat most teams sitting down.

  • Cyclones look to play spoiler role tonight

    The Chester Cyclones can not make the playoffs this season. That opportunity went by the boards when the team lost a close game against Clinton last week. That doesn't mean that tonight's regular season finale at Union County has no meaning or won't have postseason ramifications.
    Union County is fresh off an upset of Lancaster that revived the teams's flagging playoff chances. To seal the deal, however, and punch their post-season ticket, the Yellow Jackets must win tonight against Chester. The Cyclones do not plan to cooperate.

  • Lions, Devils battle each other, injuries

    Football is about blocking and tackling, running and passing. You may be able to take the "running" out of that equation, though, in tonight's Great Falls-Lewisville game.
    The two longtime rivals square off tonight with third place in the region, playoff positioning and bragging rights on the line.

  • Sanders picked for all-star game

    Tommy Sanders will play his final game as a Chester Cyclone on Friday, but it won't be his last high school football game.
    Sanders, Chester's senior quarterback, was selected to take part in the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl (formerly known as the North-South All-Star Game) in Myrtle Beach on December 13. He is the first Chester High player so honored since Neil Williams in 2011.
    Sanders found out about his selection during fourth block on Monday. Offensive coordinator Chris Powell delivered the news, though he made Sanders anxious for a moment.

  • Playoff hopes end for Cycs

    The Chester Cyclones won't just wrap up the regular season next week, they'll wrap up the 2014 campaign.
Chester fell out of playoff contention Friday night with a 22-16 loss to Clinton.
The Cyclones appeared to draw first blood. The team started with excellent field position and picked up a first down to move to Clinton's 31. Earl Hinton then raced untouched to the end zone on a reverse for an apparent score, but a flag for holding behind the play brought it back and Chester lost a fumble on the next play.

  • Lamar's speed makes difference against Devils

    A lead turned into a big deficit fast for Great Falls Friday against Lamar. Red Devils coach Kenneth Schofield said everything was fast about Lamar.
    "They really have unbelievable speed. It's amazing how fast they can get to the corner. They were just really, really fast," Schofield said.
    Lamar took the lead quickly and then rolled to a 62-7 victory over Great Falls.
    The Red Devils struck first, putting together a nice drive.
    "We looked good. We drove right down the field on them," Schofield said.

  • Lions break skid, knock off C.A. Johnson

    The Lewisville Lions didn't just beat the Hornets Friday night, they beat a persistent monkey too.
    "It felt really good to get that monkey off our backs," said coach Will Mitchell.
    The Lions got a lot done Friday night. They picked up their first victory of the season, they snapped a 12-game skid dating back to last year and assured themselves a spot in the Class A playoffs with a 43-32 victory over C.A. Johnson.

  • Class A playoff picture coming into focus

    We've been tracking Class A playoff points for a few weeks now. Rather than give you current totals, which really won't mean much by Friday, we are projecting how high, or how low, each of the teams in the upperstate can finish.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Cycs and Devils lose, Lions get first win

    The Chester Cyclones won't just wrap up the regular season next week, they'll wrap up the 2014 campaign.
    Chester fell out of playoff contention Friday night with a 22-16 loss to Clinton.
    The Red Devils struck first, piecing together a 14-play, 70-yard drive that consumed almost nine minutes. Shykeam Dowdy was the workhorse, logging 10 carries on the march including a three-yarder for a touchdown. Quarterback Charlie Craven ran in the two-point try on an option keeper to make it an 8-0 game.

  • Devils second, Lions 10th in playoff point projections

    Great Falls is now in second place in terms of playoff points in the Division II, while Lewisville remains in playoff contention in Division I race.
