  • Cyclones and Red Devils hit the road Friday night

    Ideally, a team should be better in its fifth game than in its first game. With that in mind, Chester coach Victor Floyd said no one should look past this week’s opponent because of their record.

    Chester hits the road to face Lancaster on Friday. The Bruins will come into the game with a record of 1-3, but Floyd said that is a bit deceiving. Lancaster lost close games to Indian Land, Fairfield Central and Fort Mill to start the year, but rebounded with a 21-20, come-from-behind victory over Nation Ford last week.

  • Depleted Lion fall to Bearcats

  • Lions try to prepare for the unknown

    They sport a different name, but Lewisville’s opponent this week remains a difficult opponent to prepare for.

  • Devils ready to forget about last week

    Great Falls recorded a memorable win last Friday, but Red Devils coach Tom Butler wants his team to forget about it.

    “I’ve already started preaching that,” he said. “That was great, but nobody cares about what you did last week. We live in a ‘what have you done for me today’ society.”

  • Cycs see one streak end, look to begin a new one

    In football, as in life, all good things must come to an end.

    The Chester Cyclones came into last week on a 17-game winning streak. Included in that string was a state championship victory over Dillon, a win over rival Fairfield Central (that clinched a region title), an overtime win against Camden and the program’s first victory in 27 years over Rock Hill. On Friday night, though, against that same Rock Hill Bearcats squad, Chester saw its winning streak come to an end with a 43-12 loss.

  • A close shave for Butler, Devils
