  • Pemberton sees positives in move to AA

    It wasn’t the result he wanted, but Lewisville Athletic Director Rusty Pemberton said there will be some positives that arise from his school moving to the AA classification next year.

  • Chester blows out Keenan

    In every sense of the term, Chester made quick work of Keenan on Wednesday night.

  • Lions suffer first loss of season

    Buford High football coach Tripp Watts said the Jackets needed big plays to boost their win hopes over Class A’s second-ranked Lewisville High School on Wednesday night.

    BHS junior receiver-defensive back Dwayne Bufford heeded those words and came up big in a resounding 38-20 win over the stunned Lions at Jackets Stadium.

    The game was played Wednesday, two days earlier than scheduled, due to the forecast of heavy rain and storms from Hurricane Harvey this weekend.

  • Early lead doesn't hold up for Red Devils

    Blackville-Hilda is big in size and big numbers and that made a big difference Wednesday as they battled Great Falls.

    The Red Devils jumped out to an early lead and the contest was tied at halftime, but the Hawks pulled away in the final two quarters to take a 46-14 win.

  • WEDNESDAY NIGHT FINAL: Chester wins big, Lions and Devils fall

    Aside from losing a shutout on the final play of the game against Keenan, it was a great night for the Chester Cyclones.

    Chester scored early and often in building up a 35-0 lead. John Erby ran for a touchdown and threw two to Qua Hardin (from 40 and 11 yards out). Pha’Leak Brown scored a pair of touchdowns in the first half on the ground.

    The Cyclones subbed heavily with the clock running in the second half. Stan Mills had a pair of rushing touchdowns to make it 50-0 before Keenan managed to punch one in to conclude the action.

  • Second-ranked Lions down Wildcats

    Even if there was instant replay in high school football, the Lewisville Lions still would have come out of Blacksburg with a win on Friday.

    A late, fourth down throw to the end zone by Blacksburg that would have won them the game in the closing seconds was ruled incomplete as Lewisville hung on for an 18-16 victory.

  • Late rally comes up short for Red Devils

    To really get their offense revved up, the Whitmire Wolverines had to slow it down a little.

    After a scoreless first quarter against the visiting Great Falls Red Devils, Whitmire scored three times in the second quarter and hung on late to notch a 26-16 win.

    The first five drives of the game ended either in punts or turnovers. Early on, the Wolverines (who run a ground based double wing offense) went with a no-huddle hurry up. They changed tact early in the second, though, slowing the tempo considerably and that's when things really started clicking.

  • Appeal denied, Lewisville headed to AA

    It was heard by a different body, but it ended with the same result.

    Lewisville’s appeal to stay in Class A (and not move up to the AA level as the South Carolina High School League’s realignment plan calls for) was defeated by a unanimous 7-0 vote in front of the appellate panel on Tuesday. The league’s executive committee unanimously denied the appeal last week, leaving Lewisville’s appeal to the appellate panel (made up of members of the state legislature) as its only recourse.

  • Cycs rebound, roll past Franklin Christian

    After a tough, last-second loss in the season-opener against Westwood, Chester Coach Victor Floyd wanted to see his team operate more efficiently on offense, tackle better on defense and work on ball security. Having beaten Franklin Christian 70-0 on Friday, it’s safe to say the Cyclones met those objectives.

    “The kids played hard and executed well,” Floyd said. “We didn’t have as many mistakes as in the first game. We improved.”
