  • Devils bounce back with blowout win

    After suffering their first loss of the season last Friday, Great Falls bounced back in a big way with a 63-41 blowout of AA Buford on Tuesday.

  • Cyclones head into break with a win

    The Chester boys basketball team finished the pre-region portion of its schedule the same way it began it…with a win.

    The Cyclones went on the road Wednesday night and came away with a 69-55 victory over Clinton. Chester had no problem with a slow start (which has occurred on a few occasions recently) as they put 21 on the board in the first quarter to build a seven-point lead and built that up to 10 by halftime.

    “I believe if we play like (that), we will be a tough team to play against,” said Coach Sebastian Hopkins.

  • Lions mount huge comeback in win over Blacksburg

    It’s hard to believe that the flow of a game could change as quickly as Lewisville’s did with Blacksburg on Tuesday…Believing was the key.

    “At halftime, I told the guy we just had to leave no stone unturned and could still win the game. Then I told them I only had one more word for them…believe,” said Coach Mike McCray.

  • Lions split with Chesterfield and York Prep

    They kept it close for a half, but the Lewisville girls basketball team dropped a 62-35 game at Chesterfield.

    The Lady Lions hung tough early on, trailing only 14-10 through one and 30-19 at the half before falling into a 20-point hole in the third. Amber Bass led the team with 13 points, Allie Keels added eight and Abby Dixon five.

    On Friday, the team fell to York Prep 56-30 despite 11 points from Hannah McCallister and a nine, point, six-rebound effort from Bass.

  • Red Devils suffer first loss of the season

    The season-opening winning streak of the Great Falls basketball team came to an end Friday…but just barely.

  • Chester hangs on against Bruins, falls to White Knoll

    Apparently, free throws aren’t always free.

    Chester missed its opportunity to ice the game at the line, but still managed to hang on for a 66-63 win Friday night over Lancaster, avenging a loss from the previous week.

  • City finances said to be "a mess"

    New City of Chester Finance Director Jerry Baker made his first appearance before city council on Monday and reiterated what has been known for a while…Chester’s finances are not in good shape.

  • Lady Lions lose close, boys win against Chesterfield

    It was a close, back-and-forth game for 32 minutes, but the Lewisville Lady Lions just missed on a big victory Tuesday.

    The team fell to AA Chesterfield by a final score of 50-49. Lewisville led 14-12 after one, fell behind 28-24 at the break, surged ahead again entering the fourth and finally dropped a one-point heartbreaker.

    As the team does most nights, the Lady Lions turned in a terrific night on the boards, pulling down 46, with Allie Keels leading the way with 12. Ball security continued to be an issue, though, as the team suffered through 36 turnovers.

  • Powell headed home

    He called Chester home for the past several years, but now he’s going back to his real home.

    Christopher Powell, the head baseball coach and an assistant football coach at Chester High School, has been named the new head football coach at Draughn High School in Valdese, North Carolina. The school, which is relatively new, is in Powell’s home county of Burke. Powell begins teaching there next month.

  • Cycs suffer first loss, but bounce back with win over White Knoll

    The Lancaster Bruins finished fast to cap a hoops sweep of the Class AAA Chester Cyclones on Tuesday night in the LHS gym.

    The Bruins, with a key fourth-period surge, took the lead and held on for the 77-71 win over the Cyclones.

    The LHS boys’ six-point win gave the Bruins a sweep after the Lady Bruins cruised to a 76-29 win over the Lady Cycs.

    The boys game was tighter as the Bruins and Cyclones battled to the wire.

    Lancaster, 5-2, held a 39-35 at the break and the game was tight.
