CAMDENS KENDRICE SLATER FINDS running room on the outside on this carry in the Bulldogs 30-13 loss to Dreher on Friday night at Memorial Stadium. Camden fell to 1-2 in Region 4-AAA play with the setback to the Blue Devils.
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 Jimmy Neal’s troops which fell to 5-3 overall and, more importantly, 1-2 in conference action. Chapin tops the six-team circuit with a 3-0 record while Dreher and Westwood sit at 2-1. Camden and Lower Richland (which owns a win over the Dogs) are next at 1-2 while three-time defending league champion A.C. Flora is winless after three games.With a trip to Westwood on tap this Friday before Chapin comes to Zemp Stadium to close out the regular season, the Dogs are going to need, at least, one victory in those two outings in order to secure one of the three guaranteed state championship berths afforded the conference.While there are only two more games on the regular season schedule, Neal said only one matters at this point in time.“All we can worry about is Westwood,” he said.
