    GREENWOOD – The gutsy Lancaster Bruins delivered on a do-or-die drive to keep alive their postseason football hopes.

    The 9-3 Bruins, down 10-7, drove 41 yards for the winning score as junior tailback Zedrick Truesdale bolted in from a yard out to lift LHS on top with 45 seconds to play.

    There was repeat of last year’s regular-season success and a repeat of the all-out effort, but there won’t be a repeat of last year’s Class A Upper State championship for the Great Falls Red Devils.

  • AJ Middle encore is second...

    The Andrew Jackson Middle School football team produced quite an encore this season.

    A year after the Volunteers fashioned a sterling 8-0 season, coach Jerry Pardue’s team followed with a 7-0 record this fall.

    “We had enough players coming back from last season and we also had some new ones who stepped in and came on strong for us,” Pardue said. “We didn’t know if we could have another undefeated season, but we did it.”

    The Vols, on the way to the unbeaten season, notched four shutouts and outscored their foes 224-20.

  • Great Falls wants to keep on...

    Great Falls High School coach Ken Schofield said his team isn’t looking forward to a return trip to the Class A championship game. In fact, he said, the team isn’t even looking forward to its next game.

    “We want to get three more practices,” Schofield said. “That’s all a win this time of year gets you. If you win, you get three more practices. Nothing else is assured.”
