Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) split a pair of basketball games Friday night with Camden High School (CHS).

The CHS Lady Bulldogs got a win over the Lady Demons by a score of 55-41 and also sweeping the series 2-0. The Lady Bulldogs jumped out early and never looked back, which was very similar to the first game in the series, played Dec. 11.

Natalie Jeffcoat’s crew are paced by two very good guards in junior standout Janai Crim and senior Aryian Massey. Crim had 18 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs along with 11 from Massey. They also got some good bench play from Amber Hadden who added seven points.

In the loss, the Lady Demons were led by Allyssa Weems with 10 points and seven by Jasmine Sexton. An unfortunate injury also emerged from this game as junior forward Hailey Davis broke her left arm after coming down hard on a lost ball. She will be out for the season.

In the boys’ game, The Demons evened the season series by getting a 60-50 win over Camden and avenging their loss from Dec. 11. This broke a three-game losing streak for the Demons.

L-EHS jumped on Camden 17-9 in the first quarter. The Bulldogs made a big run early in the fourth quarter and tied the game at 48 points with about 4 minutes of play. The Demons started a run of their own, ending the game on a 12-2 run, closing it out for the victory.

Bradwin Salmond filled out the score book with 16 points, nine boards and four assists. Elliott Campbell had a much better game than his last performance versus the Bulldogs, as he posted 14 points and seven rebounds.

In the loss, the Bulldogs were led by Taylor Kelly with 26 points. Also with seven points apiece were Donavan Belton, Jericho Murphy and Hyman Mathis. A big piece missing in this game for the Bulldogs was senior Tyrone Kelly, who played in the Shrine Bowl in Spartanburg. Tyrone Kelly played, but did not record a tackle on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the North Central High School (NCHS) Knights were swept by Buford High School. The NCHS boys jumped out to a 25-8 lead, but couldn’t hold on as the Buford Yellowjackets came back to win 64-51. It was tied at 35 entering the fourth quarter. For the Knights, Ziedel Clark had 14 points and 11 rebounds. Cameron Holley added 11 and Deshon Bethea chipped in with seven.

The NCHS girls also lost, falling 59-31. Buford outscored the Lady Knights in the second quarter 18-2 to keep distance and pace from the opposition. The NCHS girls were led by freshman Kali Tomlin with 17 points, while Abigail Durant led the rebounding category with 12. Mitch Loweder’s Lady Knights are 4-5 on the season.

All six Kershaw County teams are competing today in the Mid-Carolina Credit Union Holiday Classic. The tournament started Monday and continues today with the consolation and championship games beginning at 2, 4, 6 and 8 p.m. at newly renovated Rhame Arena.
