    CHERAW – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers ran into the tough defensive wall of the Cheraw Braves on Friday night and kept struggling to find any gap to get through.

    In a game, which hinged on the final snap, Westwood held on to hold off LHS, 36-29 in the Region III-AAAA football opener at Memorial Stadium on Friday night.

    “Our guys played hard for four quarters and battled to the end, but we didn’t finish in a tough loss,” Collins said. “I hurt for our players because they put it on the line.”

  • Jackets rebound, sting Cavs

    BUFORD - Buford got back on the winning track, defeating the Franklin Christian Cavaliers 26-6 at Jackets Stadium on Friday night.

    The enthusiasm of homecoming night helped fuel the Yellow Jackets’ fast start.  The Cavaliers received the opening kickoff, but on their third play from scrimmage Cavs quarterback Dee Hardin was intercepted by Buford’s Dwayne Bufford at FC’s 39.
