  • County teams fall in volleyball playoffs

    Region IV-AA champion Buford saw its postseason hopes end with a 3-1 loss to Christ Church of Greenville on Monday in the BHS gym.

    Buford opened with a 25-18 win, but the Lady Cavaliers reeled off three straight wins to win the match, 25-18, 25-19 and 25-21.

    “It was a close match and Christ Church has a really strong team,” BHS coach Taylor Roberts said. “We battled, but didn’t play as well as we could.

    “It was close and a play here and there really was the difference,” Roberts said.

  • Moore makes plays for BHS

    BUFORD – In a nutshell, Buford High School senior football player Ryan Moore is all over the field.

    When it comes to the 2017 Jackets’ season, that would be a maroon and gold bull’s-eye.

    Moore, a four-year member of the BHS football team, doesn’t see the sideline much.

    That’s because he sees the field often.

    On offense, Moore, an all-region pick, can play quarterback and receiver. On defense, he can be counted on at safety and cornerback.

  • County duo selected for North-South game

    A pair of Lancaster County trench aces has been selected to play in the 70th annual Touchstone Energy Cooperatives North-South Bowl on Dec. 9 in Myrtle Beach.

    The game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. at Myrtle Beach’s Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

  • York zaps Lancaster, 46-14

    YORK – In seemingly a mere flash, Lancaster’s focus for an upset football win over No. 8 York was blinded by a lightning bolt.

    The Bruins, up 14-0 and working on a stunning road win, saw it all fade in the cool fall air at York High School on Friday night.

    Cat-quick La’darius Allison returned a LHS kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown to ignite the host Cougars on a 46-14 win over the Bruins on Friday night.

  • Central tops Jackets, 30-14

    PAGELAND – Buford had tough going at Central Pageland on Friday night, falling to the Eagles, 30-14.

    Central’s running game proved vital in the Eagles’ 16-point win. Two CHS running backs and quarterback Quan Chambers combined for 310 rushing yards.

    Buford, rated No. 12 in Class AA, on the other hand, couldn’t muster much offense. The Jackets had 160 total yards. BHS quarterback Ryan Moore passed for 126 yards and Dalton Small led the ground attack with 39 yards.

    Early on, it looked to be a well-matched game.
