  • Stakes are high as Lions battle Silver Foxes

    It's the number one team in 1A against number three. It's a region contest, with the winner likely having the inside track on a region championship, a number one playoff seed and home field advantage in the playoffs. Aside from that, there's very little riding on tonight's matchup between Lewisville and Lamar.

  • S.C. Prep Media Polls for 10-3

  • Red Devils fall at Timmonsville

    Going into last Friday’s game at Timmonsville, Great Falls Coach Scotty Steen said the Whirlwinds were very much improved over last season and that even the team’s 3-3 record belied just how good they are. He was right.

    Timmonsville jumped out to a big lead early on the Red Devils and cruised to a 56-0 victory.

  • Cycs rally for win against Warriors

    The number 13 proved to be very luck for the Chester Cyclones on Friday night.

    Chester, facing fourth-and-goal and got to have it, scored the game-winning touchdown Friday against Indian Land with 13 seconds left on the clock in a 35-34, come-from-behind squeaker.

    Neither team could do anything on their first drive.

    Indian Land intercepted John Erby and the Warriors could not take advantage.

    On the next play after the Warriors punt, Stan Mills broke through the

    Warriors defense and raced down the far sideline 85 yards to

  • Lions get "very satisfying" victory over Panthers

    It felt like something much bigger than a victory over a winless team.

    “That was very satisfying,” said Rhett Cox, Lewisville quarterback.

    “Our guys have a feeling of redemption,” said Lions Coach Will Mitchell.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Lions roll, Cycs win close, Devils fall

    “That was very satisfying,” said Lewisville quarterback Rhett Cox.

    The Lions rolled McBee 66-12 on Friday night. It was the first victory for Lewisville’s seniors against the Panthers, who had not only won the last three regular-season match-ups between the teams, but playoff games in 2014 and 2016 as well.

  • For Cycs, the season starts now

    The 5-1 record is terrific and the top-five ranking in AAA is a compliment, but Chester Coach Victor Floyd knows neither matter for much starting tonight.

    “Now, this is a four-game season,” Floyd said.

  • Lions look to break losing streak to Panthers

    A lot of coaches say it, but Will Mitchell really means it…this week’s opponent is better than its record makes it appear.

  • Devils look for first win

    Their official record right now is 0-4, but the Great Falls Red Devils are really 0-0.

    When the S.C. High School League did away with playoff point systems last year, it meant that non-region games basically became warm-ups and primers with no bearing at all on the post-season. All that really counts for playoff positioning and seeding is region contests. So while Great Falls is winless to this point in the year, it has nothing to do with the team’s ability to earn a playoff spot, but tonight’s region opener at Timmonsville certainly does.
