  • Lions blow out Hornets

    Lewisville Coach Will Mitchell said about all that can be said of a 42-14 win that featured a running second-half clock.

    “All-in-all, it was a good effort,” he said.

    Lewisville got things rolling early against C.A. Johnson, jumping out to a 14-0 lead by the end of the first quarter and a 36-14 advantage at the half. As has been the case over the past few weeks, as the team has gotten healthy, the passing attack was both efficient and explosive. Rhett Cox completed 11-of-19 throws for 257 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Devils come up short in loss to Knights

    Great Falls wasn’t able to finish off North Central Friday in part because of trouble finishing off its drives.

    The Red Devils had three early marches into North Central territory, but couldn’t turn those into points. The visiting Knights pulled away as the game wore on in a 47-0 contest.

  • Cycs roll to 5-1 with big win over Carolina Pride

    Chester Coach Victor Floyd wanted to get a win Friday night over the Carolina Pride and come out of the game healthy. Both missions were accomplished.

    The Cyclones raced out to a 20-0 first quarter advantage and built such a commanding lead that the clock ran from late in the second quarter on of a 50-0 blowout victory.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Lions and Cycs win big, Red Devils fall

    It was a night of blowouts for Chester County’s three high school football teams.

    The Chester Cyclones, the fifth-ranked team in AAA, built a huge early lead and cruised to a 50-0 victory over Carolina Pride. The contest featured a running second-half clock. The Cyclones, now 5-1 on the year, begin region play next week with a game at Indian Land.

  • Devils return from off week, host North Central

    After a two-week layoff, the Great Falls Red Devils return to action tonight against North Central.

    The Knights come into the game off a 28-0 shutout at the hands of Andrew Jackson. The team was without starting quarterback Bubba Williamson, who missed the game with a concussion. It’s not known if he will return tonight, but his back-up, sophomore Austin Bowers, did a more than serviceable job in his steed, hitting 7-of-20 passes for 144 yards. The team was dominated up front, though, according to first-year Coach Tyrone Drakeford.

  • Cycs face final pre-region opponent

    Everybody loves exciting, down-to-the-wire games…with the possible exception of those coaching in them.

    “I’m just glad we hung on,” Chester’s Victor Floyd said of last week’ 40-39 victory over Lower Richland.

    The Cyclones hope to make things a little less exciting this week against the Carolina Pride. However, Floyd said his team is not taking the Pride lightly at all.

    “They look better than they did last year. They throw it a bunch and they’ve been scoring a lot of points,” he said.

  • Lions hit the road to face Hornets

    With all-important region play just a week away, it would be natural for the Lewisville Lions to be looking forward just a bit. According to Coach Will Mitchell, though, their eyes and full attention need to be focused on tonight.

    "C.A. Johnson seems to be improved over last year. They have some very explosive athletes," Mitchell said.

  • Big plays power Lions past Shamrocks

    Big plays are equaling big wins for Lewisville.

    The Lions moved their record to 4-1 Friday with a 40-16 victory over Eau Claire. The Lions jumped on top early, with Johnny Courtney reeling in an 18-yard touchdown pass from Rhett Cox in the first quarter to put his team on top 6-0. In the second, the Lewisville aerial attack stayed on point, with Cox finding Jadon Scott for the sophomore’s first-ever varsity touchdown. Cox then did the honors himself, scoring on a 49-yard touchdown run.

  • Cyclones hang on for one-point win

    Neither team stopped the other for most of the night, but the Chester Cyclones came up with a huge stop when it mattered most to hang on for a 40-39 victory over Lower Richland Friday.
