  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Cyclones advance with win over Broome

    Chester Coach Victor Floyd said his team has focused on finishing strong and playing four full quarters every week. The Cyclones will get to play at least four more quarters this season.

  • Cycs go for 12-0 against improving Centurions

    Coaches say it often, but Broome’s case it is true…they are better than their record indicates.

    The Centurions will visit Chester tonight for a second-round playoff game. Broome comes into the contest at 5-6, but is clearly playing its best football of the season. They come in winners in four of their past five games and sprung an upset of second-seeded Woodruff last week 38-35. That in itself shows how far the team has come since a 2-5 start to the year that included a 48-12 loss to that same Woodruff team.

  • Cyclones open playoffs tonight against Liberty

    Friday night football will remain on Friday night this week for the Chester Cyclones.

    With rain that could be heavy at times in the forecast for today, Chester considered moving its home playoff opener against Liberty to Thursday night, as many other teams around the state did. However, the decision to play the game at 7:30 tonight as was originally scheduled was made Wednesday morning.

  • Chester playoff opener could move to Thursday

    The playoffs seemed to arrived quickly this year, but they might literally be arriving more quickly than expected this week.

  • Cycs are rested and ready for playoffs to begin

    Editor’s Note: Chester is scheduled to face Liberty Friday in the opening round of the playoffs, but the contest could be moved to Thursday because of the threat of severe weather Friday, so the game preview is running in today’s edition of The News & Reporter.


    Most football coaches don’t like to have schedules and routines thrown off, but Chester Coach Victor Floyd said he welcomed the unusually long off time his team recently had.

    “We’re healthy now,” he said. “We’re good to go.”

  • Williamson, Hardin make all-region

    Their team had a tough year dealing with injuries and a move up to the AA ranks, but Wesley Williamson and Demetric Hardin have earned a spot on another team.

    Williamson, a senior, and Hardin, a junior, were both named to the all-region team from Region IV AA. Williamson had an excellent season starting on both the offensive and defensive lines for Lewisville. For the season, he graded out at 80 percent at center and contributed 30 tackles and eight tackles-for-loss from his defensive line spot. In the process, he likely set an iron man standard for the Lions program.
