  • Warriors cage Lions, 27-14

    RICHBURG – There are some games where a coach can sense a team is not at its best. Coaches note wins not having to be pretty, but having to “grind it out.”
    Indian Land’s 27-14 over Lewisville Friday night was a perfect example of grinding out a road win. The Warriors capitalized on enough Lions’ mistakes to stay perfect on the season so far 3-0.
    The Warriors didn’t have a single first down in the opening period, but as they did all night long, the Warriors bent, but did not break.

    Lancaster, in a battle with the Eagles, ignited for big plays for the bulk of the night on the way to the 14-point win.

  • Williams puts it on the line

    Indian Land High senior offensive lineman Jacob Williams is the perfect blend of brains and brawn.
    Williams, as Warriors’ head coach Mike Mayer says, gets it done in class and on the grass.
    “Jacob is a very smart football player, one of the smartest I’ve ever had at Indian Land,” said Mayer, who is in his 15th season in the Lancaster County Panhandle school.
    Williams, a three-year IL varsity veteran and three-year starter, holds his own in studies and in the line at center.
