Dogs head to LR looking to snap skid

DILLON PRICE ... CHS fullback
Look at the personnel, not their record.That may well be the mantra being preached by the Camden High football coaching staff to their players as the Bulldogs prepare to head to Hopkins for tonight’s Region 4-AAA contest with Lower Richland.While the Bulldogs will drag a two-game losing skid and a 2-4 record into this game, the host Diamond Hornets have struggled out of the gate with a 20-13 win over Airport three weeks ago being their lone scratch in the win column. For two teams which both got off on the wrong foot in their conference openers, tonight’s game may well determine which side will have to do some serious catching up in the chase for a playoff slot after opening league play with consecutive losses.“They’re a lot better than 1-5,” said CHS head coach of Darryl Page’s squad which opened 4-AAA play with a 21-14 loss to once-beaten Dreher last Friday night. At the same time, Camden was forced to dig its way out of a 12-0 deficit in the opening six minutes of what turned out to be a 29-13 loss to fifth-ranked A.C. Flora on homecoming at Zemp Stadium.“I thought some good things happened for us after the first quarter,” Neal said of his team’s effort against the Falcons.
