Sports Report for Friday, 9-24-2021

Local Notes:

Clinton HS:

  • Tennis: Clinton 6 – Emerald 0… The Red Devil girls’ tennis team traveled to Emerald HS yesterday and came back home with a 6-0 win… The Red Devils dominated the Vikings not allowing them to win even a single game in the match… IN singles action Mary Catherine Dailey, Chandler Dailey, Gracie Spangler and Reese Gowan all took wins on the court against their opponents… The Vikings fi forfeit two matches… In singles action Kimora Wesley won by forfeit and in doubles action the #2 doubles team composed of Gracie Wiggins and Libby Dailey also took a win by forfeit… The Red Devils record is now 3-0 overall and in region play.
  • JV Football Takes Win…  Now I don’t have any details on the game including the score, but according to Twitter the Red Devil JV football team took a win down at Newberry last night… I’ll try to get more details on the game and get them to you next week.
  • Red Devils Hot Newberry Tonight… The varsity football team will be hosting the Newberry Bulldogs tonight at Wilder Stadium… The Bulldogs come into the contest with a 1-2 record… They defeated Mid-Carolina in the opening game of the season and then lost to Abbeville 35-6 the following week… They took a week off and then lost to Chapin 35-34… The Bulldogs were off last week… Of course the Red Devils come into tonight’s game with a perfect 4-0 record and Coach Fountain expects a tough game with the Bulldog who likes to play tough smash-mouth football…. Go Big Red!
  • CHS Now Streaming Football… Recently CHS started streaming events at Wilder Stadium and in the main gym at CHS on the NFHS Network… This is a subscription based network where you can watch any games on the network nationwide for a monthly or yearly fee… For more information about this click here.  

Laurens HS:

  • Laurens Travels to North Augusta… The Laurens Raiders will try to bounce back from the tough 3 overtime 21-14 loss at River Bluff last Friday as they travel down to North Augusta tonight to take on the Yellow Jackets… The Yellow Jackets come into tonight’s game with a 2-3 record with wins against Lakeside (GA 17-0) and Grovetown (GA 28-19)… Their loses have been to Ridgeview (29-14), Burke County (GA 33-27) and Greenwood (31-7)… That record might be a little deceptive because the Yellow Jackets have yet to play a game with all their starters available due to COVID related issues… They are expected to have most every starter available for tonight’s game… If you can’t go down (and I hope you can) we will start out Friday night football coverage about 6:05 with the Friday Night Insiders program and go live to North Augusta about 6:40… Go Raiders!
  • Ticket Information for North Augusta Game … The varsity is scheduled to travel to North Augusta Friday night for a 7:30 contest with the Yellow Jackets… North Augusta has let us know that there will be NO TICKET SOLD AT THE GATE and you must purchase your tickets ahead of time online… To go to the webpage where North Augusta sells their tickets click here… Further they want Raider fans to know  Please make sure to note that visitors should enter on the visitor side of the stadium closest to the school and NOT the home gate on Knobcone Ave. No fans are allowed on the field before, during, or after the game.

Laurens Academy:

  • Crusaders Idle… The Laurens Academy Crusaders are off tonight as they get a week to heal up and get ready for a game next Friday night at Richard Winn Academy.

Middle School Football

  • GCO 42 – LMS 24… In a battle of middle school Tigers yesterday at Laurens Middle School, the Gray-Court-Owings Tigers took a 42-24 win over the LMS Tigers… As both coaches noted after the game, the big difference in this game was that the LMS Tigers turned the ball over at least 3 times on fumbles and in every case except one GCO made them pay for it by driving down the field and scoring… For the victors,  Damien Fernandez had TD runs of 51 and 1 yard,  Nehemias Fernandez had TD runs of 4 and 1 yards and Ariel Santos also had a pair of TD runs one of 13 yds. and the other 16 yards…. For the LMS Tigers Vaijae Quarles had a 33 yd. TD run, Jayce Campbell a 6 yd.TD run and Dewan Suber returned a kickoff 82 yards for a score… GCO goes to 2-0 on the season having defeated Whitmire earlier in the season 34-0 while LMS drops to 1-1 having defeated Whitmire 6-0 earlier in the season.

Sports Report for Monday, 9-20-2021

Local Notes:

Clinton HS:

  • Clinton 49 – Blue Ridge 7… Last Friday night the Red Devils played host to the Blue Ridge Tigers and ran their record to a perfect 4-0 as they tamed the Tigers by a score of 49-7… The Red Devils got the ball first and scored and never looked back as they scored 27 points in the first quarter and 16 in the second quarter and rolled on to the win… In the big first quarter the Red Devils 19 points on offense as they had a little problem with extra points and the defense got in on the scoring as they tackled the Tigers in their own endzone for a safety and Austin Copeland had a pick-six from 20 yards out… The defense also registered another safety in the second quarter and Bryson James also had a 25 yard pick-six… Blue Ridge only score came in the third quarter on a 39 yard run… Bryson James, Jishun Copeland and Jykorie Gary all had rushing TDs for the Red Devils and Davis Wilson had 2 TD passes one to Wilson Wages and the other to Zechariah Johnston… As you might expect Clinton led in all major statistics like total offense 348 yds. to 144… Bryson James led the Red Devils rushing attack with 83 yards in 3 rushes… To see more information on this game including all the stats and a play by play accounting of the game click here… The Red Devils will host the Newberry Bulldogs next Friday.

 Laurens HS:

  • River Bluff 21 – Laurens 14 (3OT)… The Laurens Raiders traveled down to the Lexington area last Friday night to take on the River Bluff Gators… I think by now most of you have heard that the Gators took a 21-14 win over the Raiders in a game that was really a tough pill for the Raiders to swallow… The Gators scored with 4:35 left in the first half and with the PAT the score stood 7-0…Mistakes and penalties caused the Raider drives to stall numerous times in the game but the Raiders were able to tie the game with 1:40 left on the lock on a 9 yd. run by James Rawl that was set up by a long 54 yard pass from Rawl to Pe’rel Shands that set up Rawl’s score on the next play… Roberto Luna’s PAT tied the game… The Raider defense held the Gators on their next possession and a poor punt by the Gators gave the ball to the Raiders at the Raider 49 yd. line with 1:10 left to play… The Raiders moved down the field and attempted a 35 yd. field goal with 5 seconds left which missed….River Bluff took a knee and the game went into overtime… In the first overtime, Gemire Darden intercepted a Gator pass and returned it for an apparent TD which the officials said he could not do… The Raiders then fumbled the ball away during their possession in the first OT… In the second OT the Raiders scored on a 10 yd. run by Darden and the extra point was good by Luna…. The Gators answered with a 12 yard passing TD on fourth down and with the PAT the score stood 14-14 and the teams went into a third overtime…River Bluff got the ball first and scored from 7 yards out on a run and the score went to 21-14… On fourth down from the 8 yd. line the Gators intercepted a Rawl pass and that gave them the win… The stats were just about even with Laurens having more turnovers (5) than River Bluff (3) and that really proved to be a big difference in the game… To see the game stats click here…. Laurens travels to North Augusta to take on the Yellow Jackets this Friday.
  • Drives and Plays Recap of the Game
    • In the first quarter of play neither team was able to mount a sustained drive although both did get into each other’s side of the field… On the first of the Gators third possession of the game, the Gators fumbled and the Raiders Isaac Craig recovered the ball at the Gator 33 yard line… On the Raiders first play after the fumble recovery James Rawl had a pass intercepted at the Gator 2 yard line and returned 25 yards.
    • Second Quarter… The Raider defense then forced them to go 3 and out and punt the ball to the Raiders… They then went 3 and out and punted right back to the Gators who set up shop on the 50 yard line… Nine plays ;later they scored on a pass and added the PAT to make it 7-0 with 4:35 left in the first half…The Raiders picked up a couple of first downs but had to punt it back to the Raiders as the Raider defense held them to 3 and out… The half ended with the Raiders barley in Gator territory
    • Third Quarter… The Raiders got the ball foist to open the second half and drove to the Gator 21 before a penalty and a fumble ended the drive… River Bluff drove to the Laurens 9 yard line only to have a pass picked off in the endzone by Michael Mankaka who brought it out to the Raider 5 yard line… The Raiders then drove into Gator territory only to have a Rawl pass tipped at the line of scrimmage and fall into the hands of a Gator lineman to end the Raider drive.
    • Fourth Quarter… After the interception, the Gators went all the way down the field and had the ball on the Raider 2 yd. line with a first down and goal to go… The Raiders then held at the one on two plays and held again after the Gators were moved back to the 6 yd. line and the Raiders took over at the 4 yard line… The Raiders could not move the ball and were forced to punt but so did the Gators on their next possession… After the Gator punt the, the Raiders took over with 2:55 left in the game and moved the ball down to the Gator 9 yd. line mainly on a 54 yd. pass from James Rawl to Pe’rel Shands and from there Rawl carried it in and Roberto Luna added the PAT top tie the game 7-7 with 1:40 left in the contest… The Raider defense stood tall forcing the Gators to 3 and out giving the Raiders the ball back on their own 49 with 1:10 left to play… The Raiders moved down the field and attempted a 35 yd. field goal with 5 seconds left that sailed wide right and the game ended in a tie.
    • First OT.. Laurens won the toss and let the Gators go first… After a couple of penalties moved the Gators from the 10 to the 27 yd. line Gemire Darden picked off a Gator pass to end their threat… He actually ran the ball all the way back for an apparent TD but the official said no it was dead when he intercepted it (what???)…  On their third play in the overtime, a Raider fumble was recovered by the Gators so the team went to overtime.
    • Second OT… The Raiders had the ball first in the second OT and Darden promptly carried it in from 10 yds. out and Luna’s PAT made it 14-7 Raiders… The Raider defense held the Gators to -2 yard on their first 3 play of the overtime and they managed to stay in the game on a 12 yd. TD pass on 4th down to tie the game 14-14.
    • Third OT… The Gators had the ball first in the third OT and scored in 2 plays and added the PAT to make it 21-14 Gators… The Raiders gained a net 2 yards in their first three plays of the overtime and on fourth down Rawl tried to hit a Raider in the endzone but it was picked off to give the Gators the win.

Generals 42 – Crusaders 12… The Crusaders hosted the Generals of Cathedral Academy out of North Charleston last Friday night… The news is not what I like to report in that the Generals took a 42-12 win over the Crusaders… The Crusader scores both came on passes from freshman quarterback to Garrett Murphy to senior Cal Robertson (75 yds.) and senior Diamonte Grant (15tds)… The Crusaders will be idle this next week as they have an open date.

Sports Report for Friday, 9-17-2021

Local Notes:

Clinton HS:

  • Tennis: Clinton 6 – Broome 0… The Red Devil girls’ tennis team was back in action yesterday as they traveled to Broome to take on the Centurions… Again there is good news for Red Devil fans as the team took a 6-0 win to run their season record and region record to 2-0… Mary Catherine Daily (6-0, 6-0) Chandler Dailey (6-0, 6-0), Gracie Spangler (6-0, 6-0), Reese Gowan (6-0, 6-0) and Kimora Wesley (6-0, 6-0) all very one-sided wins in singles action… The #2 doubles team composed of Gracie Wiggins and Libby Dailey played and defeated their opponents (6-0, 6-0) very convincingly…. The team will be back in action next Tuesday hosting the Chapman Panthers.
  • JV Football: Clinton 34 – Blue Ridge 0… Last night the Red Devil JV football team traveled up to Blue Ridge to take on the Tigers… I don’t have any details on the game but I can tell you that the Red Devils took a 34-0 win… Let’s hope the varsity team can do just as well tonight against the Tigers at Wilder Stadium… Go Big Red!
  • Red Devils host Winless Blue Ridge… After big 51-0 win over Calhoun County last Friday night, the varsity football team will try to extend its record to 4-0 by taking a win against Blue Ridge tonight at Wilder Stadium…  Blue Ridge comes into the game 0-2 losing its opening game to Woodmont 57-27 and then taking two weeks off… They were back in action last week losing to Travelers Rest 62-7…. By the way it is also Homecoming for the Red Devils tonight.

Laurens HS:  

  • JV Football: Gators 34 – Raiders 0… Last night the Raider JV team hosted the Gators of River Bluff HS at KC Hanna Stadium… Let’s hope the final score is not indicative of what will happen tonight down at River Bluff when the varsity teams get together and the Gators took a 34-0 win over the Raiders… The Raiders had not played since their opening loss to Clinton and practice has been limited due to COVID contact quarantines… That time off was evident as the Raiders had way to many turnovers and penalties in the game.., They did get close to scoring right at the end of the first half when tome ran out in the half as they were inside the Gator 5 yard line… In their last possession of the contest they also drove down to the Gator 20 but with little time left on the clock just could not get the ball across the goal line.
  • Raiders Travel to River Bluff Tonight … The varsity teams will get together tonight down at River Bluff… Both teams come into the game 1-2… The Gators won their opening game with Lugoff-Elgin 28-7 then lost to Spring Valley 33-10 and Nation Ford 28-21… They were off last week… The school’s address is 320 Corley Mill Rd, Lexington, SC 29702 in case you need it to navigate to the school… I am sure the team would love to see a large number of Raider fans there so plan on going if you can (see information below) but if not you can catch all the action on Real Radio WLBG and on the internet at www.wlbg.com
  • Ticket Information for River Bluff Game… If everything goes as planned the Raiders football teams will get back into action this week… The JV team will, be hosting the River Bluff Gators tonight at 6:30 at KC Hanna Stadium… The varsity is scheduled to travel to River Bluff Friday night for a 7:30 contest with the Gators… River Bluff has let us know that there will be NO TICKET SOLD AT THE GATE          and you must purchase your tickets ahead of time online… To go to the webpage where River Bluff sells there tickets click here.
  • Fan Buss to River Bluff… There will be a fan bus going to River Bluff HS this Friday night… If you want to ride down and back on it be in front of LDHS no later 6:00 pm as that is when the bus will leave… The cost for the ride is $5… That price does NOT cover the cost of admission once you get there… You must purchase your ticket online as no tickets will be sold at the gate… See the posting just above this one for that information… If you have any questions about the fan bus call the Laurens School District Transportation office at 682-9117.

Laurens Academy:

  • Volleyball Teams… Last night the Crusader volleyball teams hosted the Greenwood Christian Hawks… the only information I have is the final scores and they are all good as the Crusaders won all three matches… In middle school action the Crusaders won by a score of 2-1… A group of younger varsity players banded together to form a JV team and they also won by a score of 2-0… And finally the Crusaders completed the sweep of the Hawks by taking a tight 3-2 win in varsity action
  • MS Football… The Crusader middle school football team had its first game of the season yesterday as thy traveled down to Richard Winn to take on the Eagles… I hate to have to report that the Crusaders fell by a score of 48-6… The Crusaders only score came in the 3rd quarter when Braydon Burke connected with Ethan Collins on a scoring pass.
  • Crusaders at Home Tonight… The Crusader varsity football team will be at home tonight for a game with the Cathedral Academy Generals at 7:30… Of course the Crusaders are looking for their first win of the season while the Generals come in with what I believe is a 1-2 record… Good Luck to the Crusaders tonight!

  • Braves and Rockies Postponed (Cancelled?)… The Braves and the Rockies were unable to play the last game of the 3-game series in Atlanta yesterday due to remnants of the tropical depression moving through the area… While the technically has been postponed to October 4th after the Braves finish their regular season, it is doubtful that the game will be played unless it has a bearing on the playoffs… The Braves start a western road trip tonight with the first stop being in San Francisco before moving on the Arizona and San Diego.
  • Drive 4 – Ironbirds 3 (12)… Good news for Greenville Drive fans as last night up in Aberdeen, Maryland the Drive took a 4-3 win over the Ironbirds but it took them 12 innings to do so… The game was tied 2-2 at the end of nine innings and both teams scored a single run in the 10th inning to make it 3-3… A line drive single by Jaxx Groshans in the top of the 12th inning drove in what would prove to be the winning run

Sports Report for Monday, 9-13- 2021

Local Notes:

Clinton HS:

  • Clinton 51 – Calhoun County 0… The Red Devils last week had Swansea HS cancel on them at mid-week and were able to get the Calhoun County Saints to come up and play at Wilder Stadium… The Saints are a Class A school while Clinton is a Class AAA school and more often than not that can make a difference in the outcome of the game especially when one school (Clinton) is a much improved school as the Red Devils white washed the Saints 51-0 last Friday… Sometimes when you go back and look at the stat sheet on a game a team that has that margin of victory may not have dominated all the stats but in this case the Red Devils did… 23 first down to 4 for the Saints… 406 total yards of offense to just 56 for the Saints… The only category I could find where the Saints excelled was kickoff returns where they had 7 for 67 yards while Clinton only had 2 for 36 yards… Well that makes sense as Clinton had to kickoff after all 7 of their scores… The Red Devils had 317 yards of rushing that was spread among 12 players with no player getting over 83 yards and that was by Jykorie Gary… Gary, Jishun Copeland, Bryson James, Zee Livingston and Danny Kinard each had a rushing TD… Davis Wilson went 4 for 6 and 90 yards in the passing department with Wilson Wages and Z. Johnston each catching 2 passes and each one of them had a TD pass from Wilson…  To see all the stats on the game and a play by play accounting of the game click here…. Clinton is scheduled to host the winless Blue Ridge Tigers this Friday night at Wilder stadium.

Laurens HS:

  • Raiders Off… Just a reminder that the Raiders were off last Friday night but that they plan on getting back into action this Friday night when they travel down to River Bluff to take on the Gators.

  • Clarendon Hall 82 – Laurens Academy 14… A very young Crusader football team traveled down to Clarendon Hall last Friday night to take on the 2-0 Saints… I hate to have to report that the Crusader came up on the short end of an 82-14 score… The Crusaders scored in the first quarter when Buddy Baker had a 40 yard pick-sin with the two-point conversion coming on a pass from Garrett Murphy to Diamonte Grant… The other Crusader score also came in the first quarter when Garrett Murphy carried it in from 2 yards out but the two-point conversion failed… After the game acting Head Coach Travis Plowden said “I was very pleased in our 1st quarter performance and getting off to a better start then we have in the first three games…Things slid away in the second quarter and I wish I had done a better job of responding to the momentum change… I give a lot of credit to Clarendon they did a number of things to give us problems and have some really good players…  Although the game quickly got of hands we played hard and competed…Halftime Score: 60-14 CH…2nd Half “I our kids continued to battle and do they best they could in an overwhelming situation…Senior Leadership:  Cal Robertson and Diamonte Grant continue to greatly impress me with their leadership and toughness!   They are doing so well in helping a young team that needs leadership… Thankfully, they are providing that leadership”..  The Crusaders are scheduled to host the Cathedral Academy Generals out of North Charleston this Friday.

Ware Shoals

  • Hawks 21 – Hornets 14… The Ware Shoals Hornets played host to the Greenwood Christian Hawks at Tommy Davis Field last Friday night and they were just too nice a host as the Hawks took a 21-14 win over the Hornets… The Hawks jumped out to a 13-0 lead before the Hornets finally got on the board with 1:17 left in the first half when Ethan Moore carries it in from one yard out and the Hornets went for 2 points which they made when Jalen Coates carried it in to make it 13-8 Hawks at the half… That capped a short 16 yard drive that started when the Hawks committed their only turnover of the night, a fumble recovered by the Hornets Richard Crawford… The Hornets scored again on their first possession of the third quarter when Justice Lomax carried it in from 11 yards out but the PAT was missed making it 14-13 Hornets… Two possessions later the Hawks scored again and added a two point Pat to make it 21-14and held the Hornets the rest of the way… After the game Hornet Coach Chris Johnston was proud of the way his Hornets battled and they had their chances could not get the big play when needed… Three pass interceptions by the Hawks and over 80 yards in penalties were a big reason the Hornets had only 189 yards of total offense (166 yards rushing) while the Hawks had 336 yards of total offense with 222 of them coming on the ground… The Hornets travel to Whitmire to take on the Wolverines in region action this Friday night.

Laurens HS:

  • Daniel Football Game Cancelled… Yesterday it was announced that the Raiders home football game with the Daniel Lions that was scheduled to be played this Friday night has been cancelled due to COVID concerns… This is not necessarily due to any more positive COVID test on the football team but more because some of the players have been in close contact with those that have or may have COVID so they need to undergo a quarantine period… The Raiders numbers were already depleted due to that fact when they played Union last Friday night forcing more players to play both offense and defense and also limiting the number of players for substitutions… With the addition of more players on quarantine over the weekend the staff felt like it was in the best interest of the health and safety of the remainder of the team not to play this week… Later this week they expect to get some members of the team back from quarantine and do plan on playing the game at River Bluff on Friday, Sept. 17th.
  • JV Game Cancelled… Just as reminder as announced last week, the JV football game scheduled to be played this Thursday night at Daniel will not be played either… Again as with many other teams across the stare this is due to COVID concerns…

Laurens HS:

  • Laurens 44 – Union County 28… Last Friday night the Laurens Raiders picked up their first win of the season as they defeated the Union County Yellow Jackets 44-28 at KC Hanna Stadium… For the Raiders this was truly a team win as the Raiders roster was depleted due to a few injuries and several players being unavailable due to being quarantined because they had been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID… This forced several “second string” players to have to step up to starting roles and even more starters than normal having to play both ways… After the game that is what Coach Smith said he was most proud of  is the fact that those players did step up and do what they needed to do to get the win…The Raiders had rushing TDs by Zy Todd (2), Gemire Darden (2) and Ty Roberson (1)… Nick Fowler also had a passing TD to Jay Pulley… The Raiders finished the night with 434 yards of total offense to Union’s 306… The Raiders had 245 yards rushing which for a change was more than the yards passing which were 89… Union had only 80 yards rushing against the Raider defense but did manage 228 yards passing… For a few more stats on the game click here…. The Raiders host defending 3A champion Daniel at home this Friday night…
  • How it Happened… Key drives and plays
    • Union won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half… The Raiders promptly drove down the field going 67 yards in 7 plays with Gemire Darden carrying it in from the 2 yard line… Roberto Luna kicked the PAT to make it 7-0 Raiders with 9:07 showing on the clock
    • Neither team was able to score on its next possession… Union scored on its second possession of the game going 80 yards in 4 plays and scoring on a 42 yard pass play but the PAT kick was blocked by Jayden McGowan so the score stood 7-6 Raiders with 3:01 left in the first quarter.
    • The Raiders had their only turnover on the night as a pitch was mishandled and Union picked it up scored from about 31 yards out and added a two=point conversion to make it 14-7 Union with 2:46 left in the first quarter.
    • The Raiders wasted little time in getting those points back as Cason Elledge returned the kickoff to the Raider 40… After a pass from James Rawl to Jayden McGowan got the Raiders to the Union 21 yard line, two plays later Zy Todd carried it in from 16 yards out… Luna converted on the kick to make the score 14-14 with 1:48 left in the first quarter.
    • On the TD Laurens was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct so they kicked off from their own 25 yard line… After the return Union set up shop at the Raider 39 yard line… … Two plays later they struck on a 41 yard pass to make the score 21-14 Union with the PAT and 48.7 seconds showing left on the clock in the first quarter.
    • The Raider got on the board with 4:52 left in the half when they went 49 yards in 9 plays scoring on a 4 yard run by Gemire Darden… Luna’s PAT was good tying the score 21-21.
    • The Raiders got on the board just before the end of the half after they forced Union to punt and took over at their own 45 yard line… Six plays later they scored when Jay Pulley caught a 15 yard scoring pass and with Luna’s PAT the Raiders led 28-21 with 24.7 seconds left in the half which was the halftime score.
    • The Raiders forced Union to punt to end their first possession of the second half and then proceeded to go 78 yards in 8 plays scoring with 5:36 left in the third quarter when Zy Todd carried it in from 8 yards out but the PAT missed and the score stood 34-21 Raiders.
    • Union answered that scoring on a run from 5 yards out and added the PAT to make it 34-28 Raiders with 4:07 left in the third quarter.
    • Union was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct during their PAT attempt so was forced to kick off from their 25 yard line… After the kickoff return the Raiders started on their own 45 yard line and drove down to the Union 13 yard line where the drive stalled… Luna came in and kicked a 30 yard field goal with 9:17 left in the game to make it 37-28 Raiders.
    • Union turned the ball over on downs to end their next drive at the Raider 39 yard line and it took the Raiders just 6 plays (including a Union offside penalty) to cover the distance… Ty Roberson carried the ball on each of the plays in the drive and scored from 16 yards out with 2:15 left in the contest and with Luna’s PAT the score stood 44-28 Raiders which was the final as the Raider defense kept Union out of the endzone the rest of the way.

Laurens Academy:

  • PCA 46 – LA 14… Last Friday night at Todd Kirk Field the Palmetto Christian Eagles took a 16-14 win over the Crusaders… Sorry no other details.

Cross County… I need to do some catching up with the Clinton Cross Country teams as they both participated in the Fight Like Wyatt Meet at Hillcrest HS last Saturday.

  • Girls Finish 10th… In the girls portion of the meet, the Red Devils finished 10th out of 18 teams participating… Freshman Elizabeth Reid had the best time for the Red Devils as she ran the course 22:48 seconds which meant she finished 27th overall… To what other schools participated in the meet were and how they finished as well as to see how other top five Red Devil runners did click here.
  • Boys Finish 8thNow the news is a little better where the boys are concerned as they finished 8th out of 19 teams participating in the meet… Sophomore Charlie Cody finished 37th overall with a time of 18:44 which was a new personal best for him… To what other schools participated in the meet were and how they finished as well as to see how other top five Red Devil runners did click here… If you click on the link you will also find out that the JV boys finished 8th out of 14 teams and how their top runners did…. Go Big Red

Laurens HS:

  • Some Sports Paused at LDHS… Over the last couple of days I have mentioned to you that the Laurens JV football team has cancelled its games with Union County which was to be held tonight and Daniel HS which was to be played next Thursday night… Well yesterday it was announced that two other sports will be paused because some of the team members have been in close contact with someone who may have COVID… The volleyball (varsity and JV) as well as the cross country teams (boys and girls). Will not play their next contest for the sake of safety for all involved… That means that the volleyball teams will not be playing Ninety Si tonight and the cross country teams will not be traveling to Spartanburg this Saturday to participate in the Eye Opener Meet as they have done in the past… It is yet to be determined when they will resume their seasons.
  • Football Game Still On … Now as of the time I put this sports report together, the Raider football game with Union County slated for tomorrow night at KC Hanna Stadium is still on… However it is my understanding that the number of varsity players available for the game might have been reduced due to some of them being quarantined again not due to a positive COVID teat but being in close contact with someone who might be COVID positive… That being said, if the number of players being quarantined continues to rise the Raiders may be forced to postpone or cancel the game… Should that happen I will be sure to let you know on the WLBG website and also on my Twitter account AM860Mike.
  • McGowan Commits to Vanderbilt… Now in case you missed this on Monday’s news here at WLBG, last Saturday Raider senior running back Jayden McGowan made a verbal commitment to continue his education and football career play for the Commodores of Vanderbilt University on his Twitter account… As you may recall Jayden won both the Class AAAA 100m and 200m titles at the SCHSL State Track Met last spring… Jayden is also an excellent student or Vanderbilt would not have been able to recruit him… Congratulation to Jayden!

Sports Report for Tuesday, 8-31-2021

Local Notes:

Covid 19 Strikes Local Football Programs… Yesterday the following items were announced all due to positive COVID 19 test and CVID Protocols by each school:

  • Clinton vs Newberry… This week’s games between the Clinton Red Devils and the Newberry Bulldogs have been postponed and will not be played due to positive test in the Clinton program… This includes the JV game on Thursday and the varsity game on Friday… At this time it is undecided whether or not these games will be rescheduled.
  • Laurens JV at Union County… Likewise the Raider JV program has experienced some positive test and the JV football game at Union County this Thursday has been cancelled… At this time the varsity football game with Union County is still on and if that changes I’ll be sure to let you know.

Clinton HS:

  • Bryson James named Laurens County TD Club Player of the Week… he Laurens County Touchdown Club is proud to announce that for Week One, August 27th the Player of the Week is Clinton High School’s Bryson James… Bryson is a Junior Running Back/Linebacker for the Clinton Red Devils. Bryson was an All-County Linebacker for the Red Devils in 2020… The Clinton Red Devils defeated the Laurens Raiders Friday night 21-19 to win the County Rivalry Game in what was as good of a rivalry game as the two schools have played in a very long time… Bryson James was all over the field Friday night in the Red Devils win. He very rarely came off the field and played an outstanding game, especially on the defensive side of the ball. It was James defense that earned him this week’s Player of the Week, and the TD Club recognized his play on offense and special teams as well… Bryson is a very tough football player and Coach Corey Fountain and the Red Devil coaching staff, depended on his leadership and that very toughness in the rivalry game vs Laurens. Bryson was credited with 12 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 interception and 1 sack vs the Raiders. Bryson James seemed to be around the football all night vs the Raiders in the Big Red Devil win. Offensively, James carried the ball 11 times for 40 yards and had a kickoff return in the contest as well… The Laurens County Touchdown Club will honor Bryson on September 9th at the next TD Club Meeting. The meeting will be at noon at The Ridge.

Laurens HS:

  • Girls Golf: Eastside 209 – Laurens 244… The Raider girls’ golf team opened up their season last Thursday as they took on the Eastside Eagles… The results are not what I like to report as Eastside defeated the Raiders 20—244… Mary Frances Kennedy shot a 59 to lead the Raiders while Bryson Cruickshanks shot a 60, Julia Kennedy 62 and Lane McCracken 63.

Sports Report for Monday, 8-30-2021

Local Notes:

Clinton 21 – Laurens 19… In a game that was all it should be for the Laurens County Championship last Friday night, the Clinton Red Devils took a 21-19 win over the Laurens Raiders at KC Hanna Stadium breaking a Laurens 3-game winning streak in the series… The Raiders led most every category you would wish to lead in the statistics (total yards 354-221, first downs 20-11) but they did trail in a couple of tell-tale categories like turnovers (3 for the Raiders and just 1 for the Red Devils) and Red Zone chances 1-5 compared to Clinton’s 3-3 and that are the most telling reasons for Clinton’s win… When the Raiders made mistakes the Red Devils like any good football team would do made them pay for it… Key drives and scores:

  • Clinton scored first with 6:40 left in the first quarter when Davis Wilson hot Jykorie Gary on a 23 yd. TD pass but Keegan Fortman’s kick failed making it 6-0 Red Devils… This culminated a short 32 yard drive that was set up when Jishun Copeland intercepted a Raider pass.
  • The Raiders came right back down the field and scored on a 3yd. run by Zy Tadd with 3:22 left in the first quarter with Robert Luna adding the PAT to make it 7-6 Raiders…. This was a 6play 72 yd. Drive.
  • The Raiders then held the Red Devils on their next possession and forced them to punt… Three plays into the next drive the Raiders completed a pass that was then knocked loose by the Red Devils giving them the ball at the at the Raider 36 yd. line… The Red Devils capitalized on the turnover scoring 4 plays later when Davis Wilson carried it in from 14 yards out… Jishun Copeland than converted on a two-point run to make it 14-7 Clinton with 10:08 left in the half.
  • It looked like the Raider were going to score on their next drive as they got all the way to the Red Devil 6 when Bryson James intercepted a pass returning it to the Raider 45 yd. line… The Raider defense held and Laurens drove down to the Clinton 7 before turning the ball over on downs as the score stood 14-7 at the half.
  • Cayson Elledge opened the second half for the Raiders returning the kickoff 93 yards for the score but once again the Raiders missed the extra point and the score stood 14-13 Clinton.
  • Clinton responded by driving down the field using up 9:08 and scoring on a 4 yd. pass play from Wilson to Zay Johnson and with the Fortman’s PAT the score stood 21-13 with 2:08 left in the third quarter.
  • The Raiders than started a drive that ended with 11:46 left in the game when James Rawl completed a 35 yd. pass to Zy Todd for the score but a two-point conversion failed making it 21-19 Clinton.
  • Laurens was able to get to the Red Zone twice more but the Reed Devils held then on 4th and 1 once and the second time a Raider field goal attempt of 29 yards sailed wide right with 1:10 left in the game leaving Clinton to run the clock out for the win.
  • Bottom Line… Clinton was able to make more big plays than Laurens and took advantage of Raider mistakes like any good team will do.

To see the complete stat package for the game that includes a play by play accounting of the game click here… Clinton moves to 2-0 on the season and will host Newberry this Friday while Laurens drops to 0-2 and will host Union County this Friday.


Laurens Academy:

  • Holly Hill 68 – Laurens Academy 0… Sorry no details on this game.

Ware Shoals

  • Ninety Six 48 – Ware Shoals 6… The Ware Sholas Hornets traveled down to Ninety Six last Friday night to take on the Wildcat and the Hornets did manage to score on a 1 yd. run by Tyler Conklin in the first quarter but is was nowhere near enough as the Wildcats scored in every quarter in route to a 48-6 win over the Hornets… The Hornets fall to 1-1 on the season and will travel to Dixie this Friday night while the Wildcats improve to 1-1 and will travel to Saluda.
