Bulldogs have little sympathy for Red Foxes’ string of injuries to backs

For the past two seasons, Hartsville's Brian Rivers has been a thorn in Camden's side in rushing for 386 yards and six touchdowns. Then, last season, his backfield partner, Shy McPhail, chipped in with 130 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Bulldogs.
