    The ball-hawking Central Eagles soared to a 28-13 win over Lancaster at Memorial Stadium on Friday night.
    The 2-1 Eagles, ranked No. 7 in the latest Class AA state football poll, built a 21-13 halftime lead and added a second-half score on the way to the solid 15-point lead.
    The Eagles, making the most of their ground-oriented attack, limited the Bruins to four first downs and no points in the second half as they protected their lead behind a sound ball-control offense.

    BUFORD – After starting the 2012 football season with back-to-back road games, the Buford Yellow Jackets played host to the Airborne For Christ Rangers on Friday night.
    The Jackets’ home opener proved to be a good night as Buford posted a 35-22 win over the Rangers, a home-school team based out of the Charlotte area.
    Buford was looking to rebound after last week’s embarrassing loss at Lee Central High of Bishopville.
    BHS wasted no time as the Jackets scored on their opening possession.
