For a scant few moments, there was the opportunity for the Camden Military Academy to get back into Saturday's game with visiting Q Foundation.
COLUMBIA -- It's a mantra which football coaches preach on the practice field, in the locker room and, on the sidelines: "Don't take a play off."
LEXINGTON -- The unstoppable force against the immovable object. That's what Friday night's Lugoff-Elgin game against Lexington felt like, at times, as both offenses could not be contained for the better part of the contest.. In the end, the host Wildcats (5-1) used the high-powered air and rushing attack to keep the Demons winless through six games with a 48-28 victory. But L-E seemed to find something on offense on this night because the score ...
If you call an entire team emptying the bench to celebrate a touchdown in the end zone and a group of school-aged youngsters working the chains and then, leaving their duties during the middle of the game then, yes, this was your typical Friday scene at Bolden Stadium in Columbia.
You would think this would be the week in which Jimmy Neal would turn himself into a street corner preacher and talk to his team about retribution and, an eye for an eye.
A word of caution to those attending tonight's North Central football game with Keenan at Bolden Stadium in Columbia: Watch out for flying footballs.
Just when it looked like the Camden Military Academy football team was beginning to put the pieces together, they, temporarily, had the rug pulled from under their feet.
Getting there. For the first four games of this season, Lugoff-Elgin had put together one full game of football. The problem was that it came in two halves of separate games. In last Friday's 24-20 loss to White Knoll, the Demons were ever so close to playing that long sought-after complete game. But the visiting Timberwolves used an arguable penalty in the game's final minutes and scored the winning touchdown in the closing half minute ...
SUMTER --- So much for that post-rivalry letdown. Slicing and dicing the Lakewood defense up to the tune of 411 rushing yards, Camden left J. Frank Baker Stadium with a 48-20 win on Friday in a non-region finale which was not nearly as close as the final score would appear. On a night in which senior tailback Brandon Hampton rushed for a personal-best 169 yards on 15 carries with four touchdowns, the Bulldogs (4-1) scored ...
Four years and five meetings ago, Andrew Jackson handed North Central a 50-0 loss. Since then, the Knights have been playing catch-up to their neighboring rivals.
All that stood between Lugoff-Elgin and winning its first game of the season and ending one of the toughest dry spells this program has seen was 30 seconds.
Let's put this in academic terms. Now that injuries have started creeping into the picture at Lugoff-Elgin, head coach Scott Jones has been forced to rush even more underclassmen into playing lead roles for the Demons. It is akin to a sophomore being handed a textbook which is used in a senior course. Tonight, when L-E hosts unbeaten White Knoll, the Demons will be without wide receiver Daniel Quattlebaum. With that being the case, senior ...
It may not be on the same scale as an overzealous reveler on New Year's Day, but Camden, too, could be feeling the effects of a hangover.
As he watched clips from his team's first four games of the season, North Central head football coach Louis Clyburn noted that with a little luck, here or there, his team could well be carrying a 4-0 record into tonight's annual battle with rival Andrew Jackson rather than the 2-2 record which the Knights sport.
When we last left the Camden vs. Lugoff-Elgin game, the first half of that contest of a year ago saw neither team being able to slow down the other.
Part roller derby. Part bar room brawl.
Sometimes, the less said the better.
After putting in countless hours during what was a wet summer, the Camden High girls' basketball team reaped the rewards of their hard work on a late autumn night when drops of rain fell from the sky.
If you are old enough to remember when a record would skip and play the same part of the song over and over again on a record player, you can probably sympathize with the plight which Camden head coach Ron McKie found himself in on Tuesday.
While it may not have been on the flat track, The Elkstone Group LLC's Bodie Island roared to a 2 ¾-length win a short trip from where he was developed when he jumped his way to victory in the $20,000 Hobkirk Hill Starter Allowance at the Nov. 23 Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup in Camden.
Camden High offensive tackle Mauric James was selected to play in the 2013 Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, Dec. 14.
