  • Hinson's late pick seals AJ win


    KERSHAW – Andrew Jackson’s Jamie Hinson intercepted a fourth-down end zone pass in the final seconds to secure the Volunteers’ 25-21 win over the Aynor Blue Jackets on Friday night in the AJ home opener.

    The game was a battle, with Aynor building an early lead before AJ rallied for the comeback win over the Blue Jackets.

    Aynor, 1-1, began the game with a score on a 44-yard pass to Nathan Williamson. The Blue Jackets tallied the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.

  • Jackets charge back, top Warriors, 34-31


    BUFORD – If it was not clear before Friday night, Buford versus Indian Land is Lancaster County's best football rivalry.

    The latest game was typical of the series: intense, with a number of emotional and momentum swings, and thanks to the turnovers and penalties, it felt longer than a “Lord of the Rings” movie.

    Thanks to a 34-3 stretch for the Yellow Jackets, host Buford was able to overcome an early 14-0 deficit for a 34-31 win over the Warriors, who fell to 0-2.

    The LHS team, which draws swimmers from the four county high schools and three county middle schools, returns a host of experienced performers from last season.

    LHS, 7-1 last season, returns 13 girls and nine boys from a team which fashioned top 10 showings at the Class AAAA state meet.

    The LHS girls were seventh in the 22-team state field, while the boys were ninth out of 22 teams.

  • Locklear big in Warriors’ hopes

    INDIAN LAND – An opening game loss to county rival Lancaster High School hasn't tempered Warriors’ senior offensive lineman Jake Locklear's hopes for the 2017 ILHS football team.

    "I think we're going to be good," Locklear said.

    Locklear, in his fourth season as a Warriors offensive line starter, said the 2017 team is different.

  • IL’s Michael Csuhta honored

    FORT MILL – Indian Land High School offensive lineman Michael Csuhta was the lone Lancaster County player to earn recognition at the first meeting of the Tri-County Football Coaches Association on Tuesday at the Towne Taven in Fort Mill.

    Csuhta, in his first varsity start, graded 89 percent in the Warriors’ 21-7 loss to Lancaster on Friday night at Buford High School.

    Lewisville High School, which defeated Andrew Jackson, 30-6 in Richburg to open the season, had three winners among the Class AAA, AA and A schools.

    Sistare, TLN’s advertising team sales leader, and correspondent Catoe launched the season laughing all the way to the top spot.

    Each gal went a glowing 15-5 to open the new Picks season.
