  • Horner wins weekly football picking contest

    The News & Reporter's weekly football contest came down to the tie-breaker once again, but when the smoke cleared Briana Horner of Fort Lawn emerged as the winner.
    Horner and Alma Price of Great Falls both had records of 16-4 to lead the pack. When the tie-breaker was applied, though, that being the total number of point scored in the Clemson-Notre Dame game, Horner's guess of 38 was closest to the actual total of 46 giving her the win and the $50 prize.

  • Lions lose rain-shortened game to top-tanked McBee

    For a half, the Lewisville Lions played tough and hung close with the undefeated, top-ranked McBee Panthers. Of course, a half of football with McBee was all Lewisville got.
    The teams could have played through the heavy rain that arrived late in the second quarter, but continued flashes of lightning kept the teams off the field for an extended period of time at halftime and the contest was eventually called off. Lewisville had sought to move the game to Thursday, as many other areas teams did, but McBee expressed a desire to play the game as regularly scheduled.

  • Devils hold off Hornets

    It takes 48 minutes to win a football game, but the Great Falls Red Devils got all the points they needed to secure the season's first victory in about 50 seconds.
    Great Falls used a quick flurry of points late in the second half to take a 16-12 victory over C.A. Johnson in a game moved to Thursday night because of storms that were set to arrive on Friday.
    The two teams played to a standstill for most of the first half, moving the ball well but never managing to turn promising possessions into points.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Lions lose weather-shortened game

    McBee was ahead on the scoreboard, but it was really Mother Nature who had her way Friday night.
    With lightning and heavy rain moving into the area, Lewisville and McBee agreed to call their game off at halftime on Friday night, with the Panthers holding an 18-0 lead over the Lions.

  • Lady Cyclones volleyball showing improvement

    Taylor Roof, Chester High School's volleyball coach, has seen a lot of growth in the program in the last five years. What she hasn't seen is a growth in the interest of the sport countywide just yet.
    "I can tell a difference," she said. "But we still don't have many people playing club volleyball and there really isn't a feeder system for volleyball like there is for softball or other sports."

  • Schedule stays tough for Lewisville Lions

    After playing nothing but AA and AAA schools through the six-game non-region portion of their schedule, the Lewisville Lions will finally face a fellow Class A opponent this week. That doesn't mean the schedule has gotten any easier, though.
    Tonight, the Lewisville Lions will take on the undefeated, top-ranked McBee Panthers at home. McBee was off last week, but has put together an impressive resume this season. The Panthers have wins over AAA Lakewood, AA Chesterfield and AA Andrew Jackson (by an 84-14 score) and are averaging nearly 59 points a game.

  • Devils face new look Hornets tonight

    Great Falls is playing C.A. Johnson tonight, but not the same old C.A. Johnson.
    The Hornets, a program that has struggled in terms of wins and losses for many years, did show some on-field improvement in recent seasons using a wide open spread attack that not only threw the ball often, but also threw it deep to some tall, athletic receivers. Schofield said that isn't quite the tact they are taking on offense this year.
