  • Devils fall to top-ranked Foxes

    Lamar showed why they are the number one team in the state.

    The Silver Foxes exploded for 34 points in the first quarter of a 60-6 win over Great Falls. Speedy Lamar back Jacquez Lucas had 66 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground and returned a Red Devils punt 53 yards for a score. Travion James ran for 91 yards and another score for Lamar. The lead was 40-0 at halftime and 54-0 through three quarters.

    Great Falls did continue to fight until the very end, scoring its lone touchdown of the night in the final frame.

  • Six turnovers doom Lewisville

    When you turn the ball over six times and allow three non-offensive touchdowns, the results normally aren’t going to be good…and they weren’t Friday night for Lewisville.

    The Lions were swallowed up by their own mistakes as they dropped a 36-38 decision on the road at Timmonsville. The loss knocked Lewisville out of a Region II-A runner-up position and cost them a number two playoff seed.

  • Turnovers, penalties cost Cycs against Griffins

    As a top 10 ranked team and defending region champion, Fairfield Central certainly doesn’t need any help…but they got plenty from the Chester Cyclones on Friday night.

    Chester racked up 20 penalties for almost 200 yards, suffered more interceptions in three quarters than they’d had in the previous nine games combined and allowed a touchdown pass with no time left on the clock to end the first half in a 34-24 loss to the Griffins. It was Fairfield Central’s ninth-straight victory over Chester.

  • 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.
