  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL WITH VIDEO: Chester advances with shutout of Liberty

    Chester played its game, got Liberty out of its game and now gets to play at least one more game this season.

  • 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.

  • Tunall earns Shrine Bowl selection

    Wyatt Tunall was proud to see his name on the list, but he’ll be even more proud to see his picture on the wall.

  • Great Falls-Dixie game won't be made up

    Friday’s loss to Timmonsville ended Great Falls’ shot at the playoffs, but it also proved to be the final game of 2018 for the Red Devils.

  • Season comes to an end for Red Devils

    They had a regular season to be proud of, but there will be no post-season for Great Falls this year.

  • Lions fall to Rams

    Lewisville’s game Thursday with Chesterfield followed a familiar script and featured the same bad ending.

    The Lions bounced back from an early deficit and were within easy striking distance just before the half, but mistakes and big plays by the Rams proved too much to overcome in a 63-24 loss.

    “It was kind of a regular thing for us this season,” said Lewisville Coach Will Mitchell. “We were very young this year and when you’re young, mistakes tend to be bigger and things can start to snowball on you.”
