ENNETTSVILLE – Walking into his team's locker room at halftime of a 7-7 game with host Marlboro County on Friday night, Camden head coach Jimmy Neal must have thought he was having a déjà vu.
With his team's playoff hopes dashed after having lost their first eight games of the season, North Central head coach Louis Clyburn asked his players to turn the page and start anew with two games left to be played.
This is what you would call cutting it close. There is just one opportunity left for the Camden Military Academy football team to break into the win column. That chance comes Saturday when the Q Foundation Academy pays a visit to Spartan Field for a 2:30 p.m. start in the season finale for both teams.

Like the crew of a moving company, the Lugoff-Elgin football coaches have been kept busy by shifting players from one position into another not just in practice, but on Friday nights, as well.
Halftime turned into work time for Lugoff-Elgin. With his team trailing visiting West Florence, 16-0, and with an already lengthy injury list growing by the minute, L-E head football coach Scott Jones used the extended intermission of Friday's homecoming game to hold an impromptu, in-game walk-through. In the end, a battered group of Demons came out on the short end of a 30-0 loss to the Knights in a Region 6-4A contest. ...

Monday: North at North Central in class A state volleyball playoffs (6 p.m.)
All that's left on the table, now, is pride. Thanks to Thursday night's 35-14 loss to visiting Lakewood, trying to close the season with a victory and end things on a positive note this Friday in Marlboro County is all which remains for the Camden High football team.

If you are going to make a four-hour trip to a football game, you would, at least, want a victory to make the journey back home more bearable.
Been there, done that. As he watched McBee on film, North Central head coach Louis Clyburn probably could help but turn the clock back three years when he first started as the Knights' head coach.

Poole took over a program which is two years removed from an eight-win campaign, but one which lost quarterback Ju Ju ...
When and where will it all end? Just when Lugoff-Elgin thought its current list of injuries could not grow any longer, another page gets added. If it was not so depressing, Demons' head coach Scott Jones might well want to sit back and laugh to keep himself from crying.
