COLUMBIA --- Suddenly, that 5-1 start to the season seems so long ago. On a night in which a win over host Dreher would have kept its Region 4-AAA title hopes afloat, a five-turnover mess has the visiting Bulldogs needing a strong finish in order to kept its playoff possibilities alive following Friday's 30-13 loss to the Blue Devils at a rather quiet Memorial Stadium. The loss was the second in as many weeks for ...
Louis Clyburn must be wondering what he and his team might have done to deserve the type of treatment they are getting from the football gods.
It might be a hard sell if the North Central football staff did not have visual proof that Eau Claire is not as bad as its 0-7 record would indicate.
This could be a week in which Camden learns plenty about itself. Last Friday, the Bulldogs lost their first football game in more than a month in a 28-21 setback against visiting Lower Richland in a game in which the hosts carried a 21-20 lead into halftime, only to be stymied by the Diamond Hornets in the second 24 minutes of play. Tonight, for the second time in 15 days, Jimmy Neal and company will ...
This is, literally, adding injury to insult. As if an 0-4 start to the season was not bad enough, on Tuesday, two significant members of the Camden Military Academy football team watched practice from the team bench with season-ending injuries. It was hardly the scene which CMA head coach Will Rice envisioned as his troops prepared for Saturday's 2:30 p.m. game against visiting New Covenant. That duo, however, were not the only ones who were ...
It was as if the rain cloud which had followed the Lugoff-Elgin football program for more than two years gave way to sunny days and a brighter disposition.
It took just a few seconds for the Camden Military Academy to find out just what type of opponent the Carolina Wildcats would be.
After two sets of Monday's best-of-five match with visiting Andrew Jackson, the only thing host North Central had in common with its rival was the fact that both teams wore pink T-shirts in honor of "Dig Pink" festivities at The Castle in Boonetown.
Through the season's first seven games, Camden has been the ultimate escape artist thanks to getting three of its five victories by three points or less.
Heading into Friday's homecoming game against visiting Pelion, North Central head coach Louis Clyburn said his Knights worked on cleaning up several areas which proved costly to his team in the previous week's loss to Keenan.
The streak is finally over. After nearly two full seasons of games, dating back to week five of the 2011 campaign, the losing skid has ended. Something had to give, and something finally did as two winless teams went against one another on Friday night at Lugoff-Elgin Stadium. On homecoming at Lugoff-Elgin, the host Demons gave a complete team performance to defeat Richland Northeast, 31-10, and start region play off with a victory. Equally important, ...
Sure, the temperature dropped a few degrees earlier in the week. But for Will Rice, he was already talking about snow.
There are those games when you have two teams coming into a particular contest from opposite directions.
In the process of applying the brakes on a 10-game skid in conference games with last week's 34-33 win over A.C. Flora, Camden also found out a little something about itself.
Glancing through the six-game North Central offensive statistics, one sees the Knights have busted one play for more than 40 yards. That was a 63-yard William Jenkins carry. There is no other back with a long gain of more than 13 yards.
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.
