  • Griffins edge Warriors in OT

     

    WINNSBORO – The Indian Land Warriors fought hard against the Fairfield

    Central Griffins in Winnsboro Friday night, but the story remained the

    same for Indian Land: too many mistakes and turnovers led to a tough 14-13

    defeat in overtime.

    Defenses ruled the first half as the two teams combined for only 10 first downs. Indian Land did not have a first down in the first

    quarter and managed only eight yards. Fairfield Central, 7-3, 4-0, was not much

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

    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.

  • Stallions dash by Vols

     

    KERSHAW – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers found defensive traction in the second half of their homecoming game against Lee Central, but it was not enough to overcome the talented Stallions.

    The gallant Volunteers fell to the Stallions, 26-14.

    AJ took the ball first for a seven-play drive for 38 yards, but a field goal fell short. Chaz Debruhl keyed the drive with a 32-yard pass to Bailey Johnson.

    INDIAN LAND – The Camden Bulldogs entered their game with Indian Land needing a win to make the Class AAA Upper State football playoffs.

    The Bulldogs, 2-7, 1-2, brought their running game in Jericho Murphy, and he responded with 267 yards rushing on 24 carries and three touchdowns to go with a stingy second-half Bulldog defense for a 31-17 win over the Warriors.

    Indian Land forced a Camden punt and quickly moved to the Bulldogs’ 25.

    ILHS senior receiver John Gregory broke open and David Loughry hit him to make it

  • 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.

  • AJ's Blackmon recognized as defensive player of the week

  • Catoe back on top in picks

    Mandy Catoe’s absence from the Picks top spot didn’t last long.

    Catoe, on the heels of a 15-5 week, vaulted back into first by a pair of games.

    Lori Sistare “Bright,” up a game in first last week, couldn’t make it last with a 12-8 showing.

    “Those two girls are in a tight race,” said Eric “The Red” Rowell. “Since we’re getting close to Halloween, that’s really scary. I think that have put a spell on the rest of the pickers.”

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