  • BLACK FRIDAY: County teams goes 0-3

    It was a rough night all the way around in Chester County as Chester, Lewisville and Great Falls all went down to defeat.

    Chester dropped a 34-24 decision to rival Fairfield Central. Chester stormed out to a quick 10-0 lead on the strength of a two-yard John Erby touchdown run on Chester’s opening drive and a 25-yard field goal by Erby The Griffins responded with six-minute, 67-yard drive that stayed primarily on the ground, aside from the final play, an eight-yard Jacob McManus touchdown pass that made it 10-7.

  • City negotiating possible giveaway of sewer system

    The Chester-Catawba Regional Airport can either have repair work done on its aging storm drainage system or portions of it can be closed. That was the message Airport Director Keith Roach had for Chester County Council on Monday.

    Roach said as far as he can tell, no work has been done on the drainage system since it was installed in 1941. At 76-years-old, though, the system is starting to show its age, he said. With the taxiways seeing the most damage, but portions of the runway also now suffering from washout.

  • White wins weekly football picking contest

    No tie-breaker was needed this week as Orlando White of Chester emerged as the clear winner in the News & Reporter’s weekly football picking contest.

    White finished alone in first place with a record of 18-2, with his only misses being Auburn’s loss to LSU and Boise State’s win over San Diego State. For his efforts he wins the weekly $50 prize.

    Oddly, only one contestant was within a game of first. Corey Wade of Chester finished in the runner-up spot with a record of 17-3. A large number of contestants finished at 16-4 or 15-5.

  • Red Devils fall to Panthers

    The Great Falls Red Devils ended their scoreless streak on Friday, but unfortunately not their losing streak.

    Great Falls fell to McBee 42-6. The loss dropped the Red Devils to 0-7 overall and 0-2 in region place. Even with the loss, Great Falls’ playoff hopes have not been completely extinguished. To advance to the post-season, the Red Devils must win their final two games (against Lamar this coming Friday and Lewisville in the season finale). Timmonsville could also help the Devils by upsetting Lewisville this week.

    Lamar comes to Great Falls on Friday.

  • Chester moves to 8-1, sets up region title showdown

    It says a lot about how far the program has come that Chester Coach Victor Floyd believes his team had its worst half of offensive football of the year Friday night…and they won by three touchdowns.

    Chester built up a big early lead and came out of Camden with a 35-14 victory to remain unbeaten in region play.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Cycs win eighth straight

    The Chester Cyclones won their eighth-straight game Friday night with a 35-14 victory over Camden.

    Chester actually trailed early, as Camden went 77 yards on their opening drive for a touchdown. The Cyclones answered quickly, though, answering with an eight-play, 74 yard scoring drive of their own. Stan Mills capped it off with a nine-yard touchdown run to tie the score at 7-7.

  • Playoffs start now for Devils, Panthers

    Great Falls and McBee both come into their match-up tonight winless, but that doesn’t mean that both don’t still have a lot to play for.

  • Cycs look to stay perfect in region

    Chester’s game next week against Fairfield Central will be a big one…but how big depends on what the Cyclones do this week.

    Chester will look to stretch its winning streak to eight games tonight with a road trip to Camden. The Bulldogs come in with a record of 1-6, but that mark is a little bit deceiving with the team having played a brutal schedule so far against a host of ranked teams.

    “They’re better than that shows. They have some good personnel,” said Chester Coach Victor Floyd.
