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

    Two of the smallest players on the field made some of the biggest plays of the night as Great Falls outlasted Ware Shoals in a marathon five overtime game by a 36-30 score.

    Hunter Funderburk, an undersized receiver and linebacker, returned the opening kickoff 80 yards. He lost a fumble as he made a cut, by freshman Xavian Moore scooped it up and took it the last five yards for a touchdown and a 6-0 Great Falls lead.

    Funderburk would also come up with a pair of sacks and was in on a number of tackles.

  • Cyclones face final pre-region tune-up

    Two weeks ago, Chester played in Georgia. Last week, the approach of Hurricane Florence forced their game with Lancaster to abruptly be moved up to Wednesday. This week they will be dealing with the festivities and distractions of homecoming. Most coaches don’t like having their regular routine altered, by Cyclones Coach Victor Floyd says there is a bright side.

    “It’s three weeks of having to adjust our schedule,” he said. “That’s a lesson in itself. You have to be able to adjust on the fly and roll with it.”

  • Red Devils ready to roll after week off

    Great Falls Coach Scotty Steen knows exactly what to expect when his team faces Ware Shoals tonight because he known exactly what challenges they’re facing.

    "They are dealing with a lot of the same issues we are," Steen said. "They have struggled with numbers. They've got about 20 on the roster, so we know what they're going through."

  • Banged up Lions start region play

    It will be their first road game, their first region contest and their first game with playoff implications but it won't be Lewisville's first game dealing with injuries.

    The Lions will be at Pageland Central tonight, facing a team that appears to be on the upswing after a very tough start. Pageland Central opened the year with a blowout loss (46-14) to AAA Broome, then were shut out by Class A's top team, Lamar, by a 23-0 score. Since then, though, they won a shoutout with Forest Hills of North Carolina and routed Cheraw 33-13.

  • Cycs roll to 5-0 with blowout of Bruins

    Ly’Terrence Mills was in on multiple tackles, he blocked a field goal, he recovered a fumble and he returned an interception for a touchdown…and that was just in the second quarter.

    The barrage of big plays by the junior defensive back helped turn a close game into a blowout on Wednesday as Chester rolled past Lancaster 41-20.

  • Hurricane Florence scrambles county sports schedule

    Hurricane Florence has not yet made landfall, but it has already had a huge impact on local sports schedules.

    With some models showing the storm tracking toward South Carolina with a projected landfall of late Thursday or early Friday, the decision was initially made Monday to move Great Falls’ football game at Dixie to Thursday. However, a district-level decision was made Tuesday afternoon to postpone the contest for safety reasons.
