  • Jackets rout CHS Rams

    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.

    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.

    “Yep, a lot of gridiron gridlock,” Eric Rowell said. “It’s close, but I want to make it un-close.”

    Defending Picks champ “Dandy” Mandy Catoe is also getting in on the action, a close third with a 52-28 mark, four from the top.
