    FORT MILL - A dominating defensive effort by the Nation Ford Falcons allowed them to get a 28-0 win over the Indian Land Warriors on a short week for both teams. 

    With little prep time for each, Indian Land (2-3) and Nation Ford (2-3) made the best of a short week as they played two days early to avoid any issue with Hurricane Florence barreling down on the Carolina coast.

    The unbeaten Cycs, 5-0 and ranked third in the latest Class AAA state media football poll, swept Lancaster from the unbeaten ranks Wednesday at the CHS field.

    Chester, starting fast and strong on both sides of the football, rolled to a 41-20 win over the Bruins.

    The start of Buford’s 52-27 thrashing of the Chesterfield Rams was reminiscent of the previous week’s game against Parkwood High School.

    Two plays later, James McBride was in the end zone for a Rams’ touchdown. After the missed extra point, the Rams had an early 6-0 with 11:11 left in the first quarter.
