SUMTER --- So much for that post-rivalry letdown.
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.
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.
Moral victories have long since gone the way of the Edsel at Camden Military Academy.
There was almost a sense of relief in Will Rice's voice as he talked about Camden Military Academy's game with visiting East Clarendon this afternoon at Spartan Field.
Some fans circle this Friday on their calendars.
It has been more than two decades since MC Hammer was last seen on the record charts. That has not stopped Louis Clyburn from reviving hammer time in Boonetown.
