  • Coaches salute county trio

    FORT MILL – Three Lancaster County high school football players were saluted for

    their play at the weekly meeting of the Tri-County Football Coaches

    Association at the Towne Tavern in Fort Mill on Tuesday.

    The county trio included Lancaster High School’s Kevius Barnes along

    with Jacob Cato and Dalton McKittrick of Andrew Jackson High School.

    Class AAAA foe Lugoff-Elgin on Friday night.

  • Small looms large for Jackets

    BUFORD – Dalton Small is Buford’s little big man. Small, at 5-8, 170 pounds, isn’t the biggest player, but whatever it takes, he will come up big for the Jackets football team.
    “Dalton is a big asset to our team,” BHS coach Tripp Watts said. “He will do anything to help the team. Dalton is a true team player.”
    Small, a two-year starter for the Jackets and a four-year player, is a two-way starter.
    “The biggest thing about Dalton is he doesn’t come off the field,” Watts said.

    INDIAN LAND – It was homecoming for the Indian Land Warriors and on Friday night they faced a team as desperate for a win as they were, the 1-3 Nation Ford Falcons.

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Falcons scored 31 straight points en route to a 31-7 win.

    The Falcons had a chance to score in the first period, but Ben Tuipolotu was stopped on fourth and one at the 18, ending a 64-yard drive.

  • Cheraw hands BHS first loss

    BUFORD – The Buford Yellow Jackets, after playing a conference game against Lee Central just four days earlier, had no answers for the third-ranked team in the state, falling to the explosive Cheraw Braves, 62-0 on Friday night.

    The loss was Buford’s first of the season.

    Cheraw, 5-1, only held a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter, but you could sense it was only a matter of time before the Braves’ athleticism took over.

    PAGELAND – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers fell to Region IV-AA rival Central High School of Pageland, 28-7 on Friday night.

    The strong Eagles’ defense blocked the visiting Volunteers, and turnovers sealed the 21-point AJ loss.

    On the Eagles’ first possession, they fumbled and AJ recovered. On fourth down in the drive, AJ kicker Avery Funderburk attempted a field goal from the 25, but it was wide to leave the game scoreless.

  • Bruins claw out 27-24 win

    LUGOFF – The Lancaster Bruins had to hold on by the skin of their claws, but they hung tough in a 27-24 road win over Class AAAA non-region foe Lugoff-Elgin on Friday night at LEHS.

    The 3-3 Demons, who trailed the bulk of the intense, physical contest, rallied to slice the gap to the final three-point margin with a 20-yard Ty House leaping touchdown catch with 2:24 to play.

    Lancaster then came up with an onside kick recovery to seal the narrow win.

  • Junior Warriors drop first loss to Nation Ford

    Indian Land’s lone touchdown came on Jiquese Tinsley’s eight-yard touchdown run.
    The Junior Warriors, who have an open date next week, return to play Oct. 11 with a home game with the Columbia High School jayvees.
