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.Friday night at Zemp Stadium, for the first 24 minutes of this 34th edition of the cross-river rivalry, the two sides took turns stopping themselves.With both teams wasting several golden opportunities while inflicting further damage due to ill-timed penalties, the host Bulldogs held a 14-7 lead at intermission. The second half was all CHS as the home team used big plays on both sides of the ball to rattle off the final 21 points to take a 35-7 victory.The win gave Jimmy Neal’s troops a 3-1 record on the season while the Demons slipped to 0-4 on a night in which Camden’s offense found another gear in rattling off 366 total yards on 66 plays from scrimmage while L-E had 288 on 65 snaps.It was the Dogs’ hurry and snap the ball scheme which, in the end, wore down the L-E defense.“I thought it did,” Neal said when asked if his team’s rapid-fire offense gave the Demons problems.
