  • Trojans hold off Jackets

     

    BEAUFORT – Buford’s last-ditch drive to deliver a stirring comeback win fell short at Whale Branch on Friday night.

    The Jackets, who held an early 21-3 lead, came up short in a tough 30-27 loss to the host WBHS Trojans in the opening round of the Class AA playoffs in Beaufort.

  • Vikings rush by Warriors, 48-23

     

    GREENWOOD – Coaches have often said that the way to win games is to run

    had 49-484 rushing themselves, and between their two best backs,

    Keshawn Settles and Treshawn Chamberlain, averaged 12.4 yards a carry, and had six touchdowns.

  • 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

  • Stallions dash by Vols

    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.

    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.
