    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.

    BOONETOWN – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers took their first 2018 loss, a 28-17 setback, to rival North Central High School on Wednesday night at the Knights’ field.

    The Region IV-AA opener for both teams was moved to Wednesday due potential weather problems from Hurricane Florence this weekend.

  • Cyclones sweep Bruins from unbeaten ranks

    CHESTER – For the Lancaster Bruins, Hurricane Florence had an impact, but so did Cyclone Chester.

    Hurricane Flo, its powerful presence expected to be felt this weekend, was one factor, but the on-the-field beast was the Chester Cyclones.

    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.

  • Jackets rout CHS Rams

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

    Buford had seven turnovers in the loss to the visiting Rebels, and on the opening kickoff, Jackets’ senior standout Justin Hayden was stripped of the ball and Chesterfield recovered at the BHS one-yard line.

    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.

  • Falcons blank Warriors, 28-0

    Indian Land fell to 2-3 on the season, dropping a 28-0 road loss to Class AAAAA Nation Ford on Wednesday night in Fort Mill.

    ROCK HILL – Indian Land was again on the road Friday night, this time against the Rock Hill Bearcats.

    For a while it looked as if it might be deja vu all over as, just as they did last week, the determined Warriors kept it close in the first half in their 14-9 comeback win over York.

    Class AAAAA Rock Hill, however, used a strong running game and stout defense to turn a 7-0 lead into a 34-7 win over the Warriors on Friday night at District Three Stadium in Rock Hill.

  • Parkwood outlasts Buford

    Buford’s home opener saw the Yellow Jackets stumble and fall short to the Parkwood Rebels, of Union County, N.C., 30-22 on Friday night.

    Buford, playing its first home game of the season, was eager for its first win of the 2018 season. 

    Playing from behind all game, the Jackets struggled to keep the Rebels ground game at bay.

    Parkwood rushed 51 times and gained 158 yards. Rebels running back Sametrius Drakeford amassed 154 of those rushing yards in the eight-point PHS win.
