  • Cyclones win region opener with ease

    Chester fans held their breath Friday night as quarterback Tony McNeal exited the contest mid-way through the second quarter of the game vs. York  with what appeared to be a knee injury.  McNeal , who is committed to Clemson, emerged from half-time warming up on the side-lines and Cyclone fans exhaled.  However, he would not return to the game.  
    “He bruised his knee a little bit and we decided to just keep him out.”  said Coach Anthony Sterling, also assuring,  “McNeal is fine.”  

  • Devils try to win fourth straight

    The Great Falls Red Devils have won three straight games, but winning tonight's contest against C.A. Johnson is more important than anything the team has done so far this year.
    Tonight's visit from the Hornets is the region opener for both schools. A good start in the region will help cement playoff seeding down the road and help continue the momentum the team has built up after an 0-2 start.

  • Lions start region slate with McBee

    Farmers and folks with brown lawns weren't the only ones glad to see a change in the weather this week.
    "I'm glad it rained," said Lewisville coach Marvin Burke. "We practiced out in it, to work on our ball security. We did a decent job out in the rain."
    Burke hopes the wet practice will help his team hang onto the ball in tonight's region opener against the McBee Panthers.

  • Cycs looking for strong start in region

    The most noteworthy streak involving Chester and York going into the match-up between the two last year was an 11-game winning streak in the series by the Cougars. By the time the game ended it was a streak by Tony McNeal that had everyone talking.
    McNeal had arguably his best game as a Cyclone that night, hitting 19-of-21 passes (the two incompletions were drops) for 369 yards and five touchdowns. At one point, he hit 11 passes in-a-row.

  • Red Devils pitch a shut-out

    The Great Falls Red Devils came into Friday night’s non-league bout with Buford’s Yellow Jackets fired up and hungry for a win.  A rivalry was fueled Thursday night at the JV game when the two teams had a heated exchange, debating the outcome of the following night’s game.  This gave the Red Devils the intensity and motivation needed to ultimately produce a 27-0 shutout over Buford.  

  • Big plays and turnovers lead to another loss for Lions

    On Friday night, Marvin Burke said he saw basically saw the same movie for the fifth straight week, and didn't like how it ended.
    Once again the Lewisville Lions were able to run the ball effectively and eat up some clock, but once against turnovers and big plays by the opposition led to a loss, this time it was 49-0 at the hands of York.
    "It was pretty much the same thing that's happened every week," Burke said.

  • Lions and Cougars looking for first win

    Bad starts have gotten the Lewisville Lions off to a bad start this season. The team will try to get out of the gate quickly in tonight's game against the York Cougars.
    In the opener against Chester, Lewisville was in a quick 14-0 hole. Against Pageland Central, the score was 14-0 early in the game. Nation Ford jumped out to a 21-0 lead and Fort Mill was up 28-0 by the end of the first quarter. In each game, the Lions settled in and played well after the opposition's initial burst, but Lewisville coach Marvin Burke said it is important not to dig a deep early hole.

  • Devils face final tune-up before start of region play

    The Great Falls Red Devils will look to extend their winning streak tonight with a home game against former region mate Buford.

  • Devils win second straight

    Let this be a warning to all wide receivers who are facing the Great Falls Red Devils this year. Do not chop your steps.
    Great Falls junior defensive back Shaquille Simpson picked off three passes in Friday's victory over Mt. Zion Christian Academy or Durham. He did that not by watching the eyes of the quarterback, but by watching the feet of the receivers he was covering.

  • Big rushing night leads Mavs past Cycs

    The anticipated passing dual between Chester quarterback Tony McNeal and Mallard Creek trigger-man Marquis Williams on Friday only gave fans about half of what they were expecting.
    McNeal had his regular productive day, hitting 17-of-31 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns. Williams, though, didn't crack 100 yards until late in the game and only threw for 113 yards.
    Williams didn't need a big night with his arm, though, as his Mavericks racked up 399 yards on the ground in a 48-24 victory over the Cyclones.
