  • Region play in full focus

    Lancaster launches the “second season,” while Buford and Indian Land continue region play and AJ steps away from non-league play to highlight week six in county high school play.
    Lancaster, capping a three-game home stretch, will open Region III-AAA as the Bruins host Chester.
    Buford, 2-0 in Region IV-AA play, will seek to keep its spotless league mark intact as the Jackets host Cheraw.

    BOONETOWN – Behind a balanced offensive attack and a punishing defense, Buford cruised to their first road win of the season, defeating the North Central Knights, 40-6 Friday night in Boonetown.
    Buford pushed its record above .500 (3-2) to give the Jackets a perfect 2-0 mark in Region IV-AA play.
    Buford senior quarterback Scotti Moser threw for 149 yards and two TDs and the Jackets’ ground attack churned out another 143 yards.

  • Bruins lash Lions, 42-12

    Lancaster High head football coach Bobby Collins was happy for the win, a 42-12 victory over Class A Lewisville, but at the same time used the game as an example.
    The ninth-ranked Bruins, 5-0, rolled in the second half after starting a little slow in the 30-point win on Friday, Sept. 25 at Memorial Stadium.

  • Eagles soar to down Vols, 27-7

    KERSHAW –  Central of Pageland extended its winning streak to 22 games over Andrew Jackson, 27-7 Friday night at Volunteer Stadium.

    The game was knotted 7-7 at the half, but the Eagles’ defense shut down the Volunteers in the second half.

  • Rams roll in victory over Warriors

    CHESTERFIELD – It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish is cliche, but there is a good reason for that; it’s the truth.
    Never was it proven as well as Friday night when Indian Land faced Chesterfield at CHS in Region IV-AA.
    The Warriors Lee Massey returned the opening kick off 85 yards for a quick score, but the Rams would outscore Indian Land 48-7 for the rest of the first half, and Chesterfield cruised to a 61-30 region win.

  • Knight enjoys grid jousts

    Buford High School head football coach Tripp Watts and his Jackets’ staff know they have a veteran player in three-year performer Lane Knight.

    Knight’s 71-year-old grandfather Huey Knight, a legend at Lancaster Super Speedway and a recent inductee in the LSS Hall of Fame, also plays into young Knight’s persona.

  • Lady Bruins netters bidding to rebound from losses

    The 2015 Lancaster High girls tennis season is a challenging one as the Lady Bruins lost nearly three-fourths of the LHS girls team from the previous year.
    The fall tennis season is so short that it’s difficult to overcome the learning curve for new players in time for the region schedule to begin.
    The trio of Clinton, Broome and Union County are always tough opponents and make the region a challenging one again this season.
    Chester and South Pointe round out the region and the top four finishers will advance to the playoffs.
