Lugoff-Elgin’s hopes of earning a 4A state boys’ basketball tournament berth suffered a hit last Friday as visiting Blythewood spoiled Senior Night at the Demons Den by knocking off the hosts, 83-62.

The loss left Garrett Knight’s charges with a 1-7 record in Region 4-4A play.

The Bengals jumped to a 24-14 lead after one quarter and led, 41-26, at halftime. A 27-16 third quarter run by the guests extended the margin to 68-42 entering the final eight minutes of play.

Sophomore forward Bradwin Salmond led the Demons with 17 points. Junior guard Tyrese Elm and senior guard Aldreacio Wells scored 10 points each while junior guard Brandon Davis added eight points.


Lady Demons fall to BHS: Blythewood used a 16-4 first quarter run to pave the way for a 51-20 win over the Lugoff-Elgin girls on Friday night.

The loss was the eighth in as many outings for Von Duncan and campany in rugged Region 4-4A play.

Blythewood carried a 25-4 lead into the locker room at halftime before the Lady Demons used a 15-point third quarter to close the gap to 32-19 heading into the final stanza in the final home game of the season for the hostesses.

 Junior guard Jasmine Sexton led L-E with six points while classmate Alyssa Weems added four points.


North Central drops pair: The North Central girls and boys basketball teams remained winless in Region 4-AA play following a doubleheader loss at Indian Land last Friday night.

The Lady Knights lost the opener to the Lady Warriors, 70-43, while the North Central boys fell in the nightcap, 108-60.


This week’s games: This week is the final week of the regular season for Kershaw County high school basketball teams.

All three county teams will be on the road tonight as Camden heads to Chapin for its season finale while Lugoff-Elgin and North Central travel to Ridge View and Cheraw, respectively.

L-E steps out of conference play to travel to meet Central of Pageland on Wednesday before going to Dutch Fork for Friday’s season finale. North Central will close its season on Friday when Central comes to Boonetown.

All doubleheaders start with the girls’ game at 6 p.m. followed by the boys’ contest.
