Demons ready to usher in 'new year'
DAKOTA SHOARS ... L-E offensive lineman
There are those games when you have two teams coming into a particular contest from opposite directions.This is not one of those occasions.When Richland Northeast enters Lugoff-Elgin Stadium for tonight’s homecoming game, it will be two squads which, unfortunately, have traveled in parallel lines through the first six weeks of the season. It is only fitting that this evening marks a new beginning, a fresh start to the season after six weeks of frustration for both sides.And if you do not think that both L-E coach Scott Jones and his friend and opposite number at RNE, Jay Frye, are not looking at this as the opening of a new season --- which it is with this being the beginning of Region 4-4A play --- well, you are sadly mistaken.“We don’t have much choice because we haven’t scratched, yet,” Jones said when asked if he has preached to his team that tonight kicks off a new campaign when everybody is 0-0.“We’re trying to convince them that we have a chance in our region, which we really do. We have a chance to compete and, to make the playoffs.”After having had more than their share of struggles on offense in the first four weeks of the season, the L-E offense underwent a facelift before the White Knoll game two weeks ago.
