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

    The Great Falls Red Devils scored with less than three minutes to go, then mounted a late defensive stand deep in their own territory to preserve a 21-16 victory Friday night over Gray Collegiate Academy.

  • Devils brace for unknown

    Most people don't know much about the football team at Gray Collegiate Academy. There isn't much to know yet.
    The school is in its first year, fielding its first football team and played its first-ever game last week. Great Falls faces the team this week, the first of two match-ups between the squads this season. Red Devils coach Kenneth Schofield says one thing about the team is obvious.
    "They are very big. They're huge," Schofield said.

  • Lions face improving Wildcats

    Whether you call it "the scrum" or "double wing power" it's hard to defend, but that is what Lewisville will be tasked with doing when it takes on Blacksburg tonight.

  • Another rivalry game for Cycs

    It's early in the season, it's a non-region match-up and none of that matters.
    The Chester Cyclones will face the Fairfield Central Griffins tonight. When the two meet in any sport, it is usually in front of a packed house with emotions running high and both sides wanting badly to knock off their long-time, bitter rivals.
    Chester coach Anthony Sterling acknowledged that, but said it is most important for his team to focus on crisp execution and eliminating some of the mistakes present in last week's season-opening victory over Lewisville.

  • Devils open season with close win

    Blacksburg won at the game of keep away, but not at the game of football.
    Great Falls didn't have many possessions or run many plays, but they did just enough to open the season with a 13-7 road win over the Wildcats.
    The Red Devils got on the board early by cashing in on a turnover. Blacksburg lost a fumble on its first play from scrimmage and Great Falls recovered it. Quarterback Chris Culp scored on a tackle-breaking 15-yard run to make it 7-0.

  • Cycs pull away from Lions

    Two early scores built a lead and two late ones secured a victory Friday for the Chester Cyclones.
    Chester opened the 2014 season with a 34-8 victory over county rival Lewisville, the 10th straight victory for the Cyclones in the series.
    Chester scored on its first possession, with good starting field position (at the 47) and a pair of Lewisville penalties helping the cause. Jalyn Reid concluded the five-play march with a 24-yard touchdown run. The extra point was blocked, leaving the score at 6-0.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Cycs down Lions, Devils win on the road

    The Chester Cyclones got the year off to a 1-0 start Friday night with a 34-8 victory over county rival Lewisville.

  • Devils hit the road, face Wildcats

    The Blacksburg Wildcats didn't win a game last season and come into tonight's season-opener on an 11-game losing streak. According to Great Falls coach Kenneth Schofield, whose Red Devils face the Wildcats tonight, that isn't necessarily a good thing.
    "You know they are going to break that losing streak sometime, you just hope they do it next week or sometime after," Schofield said.

  • Cycs and Lions ignoring streak

    The Chester Cyclones have a long winning streak going against the Lewisville Lions, but that might come as news to the two teams.
    "I hadn't really thought about it," said Chester coach Anthony Sterling.

  • Devils and Lions win, Cycs lose in jamboree

    All the home teams weren't actually victorious, but the "home teams" took a 32-26 victory over the visitors in Friday's Chester County Football Jamboree.
    The annual event featured four halves of football, with the county's three teams and Lancaster considered the "home" squads. A rolling score was kept throughout all four match-ups.

    Devils down Alleghany

    In the opening session, Great Falls was able to hang on for a 13-7 win over Alleghany.
