Sports news for Screven County and surrounding areas.

Successful SCMS softball season ends

Southeast Bulloch Middle School Jackets defeated Screven County 11-3 Tuesday to conclude SCMS’s season, but the score does not show the true story of the game.
Screven County got things started in the first inning, scoring two runs to take the lead. Southeast Bulloch scored one in the bottom half and the Lady Gamecocks were winning 2-1.
In the bottom of the second, SEB pulled away for good with five runs on three errors.
Screven would score in the 4th making the score 7-3 SEB.
Jonna Ward led Screven with one hit in three at bats.

Lady Gamecocks fall in region title series

Never getting started, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle fell twice to home-standing Harlem on Oct. 4 to finish the regular season at 18-9 and as the Region 4AA runner-up. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 11, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the team hosted Region 3AA third seeded East Laurens in a double header to start the Class AA state playoffs. If there was a split on Wednesday the deciding game will be this Thursday, Oct. 12, afternoon at 5:00.

Gamecocks to face Patriots at ‘The Battlefield’

Facing a team that ended a 13-game losing streak in convincing fashion last week with a 53-22 win over home-standing Josey, the third-ranked Screven County High School Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will travel to Augusta Friday to face the Westside Patriots in the stadium they call “The Battlefield.” 

SCHS stands at 5-0, 3-0 in Region 4AA play with Westside being 1-5, and 1-2.

Friday the 13th finds Gamecocks at Westside

There is a good bet that neither Pamela nor Jason Voorhees will be in the stands at The Battlefield and the nearest Crystal Lake is 32 miles away in Aiken County, South Carolina, but tomorrow night is Friday the 13th and the Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will be back in 4AA action as they face the suddenly explosive Westside Patriots.

Friday the 13th is not a jinx for the Gamecocks. 

State softball playoffs in Sylvania Oct. 11

Hosting either 3AA No. 3 seed East Laurens or 3AA No. 4 seed Washington County, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Jim Randall Doyle will begin the Class AA state playoffs with a double header on Oct. 11 at the local field. 

Should there be a split there will be a third game on Thursday, Oct. 12.

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the 18-7 Lady Gamecocks traveled to Harlem to face the 16-6 Lady Bulldogs in the opening two games of the Region 4AA championship series. 

Gamecocks whip upstart Harlem 35-0

Amassing an incredible 550 yards of total offense, their third time in five games over the 500 total yard mark, the Screven County Gamecocks of Coach Ron Duncan rolled past the Harlem Bulldogs 35-0 in a game that was not nearly as close as that score would indicate. 

It was the annual Hall of Fame Game as the inductees are Bobby Cannon (Class of 1958), Don Tyre (Class of 1965), Matthew Sheley (Class of 2003), and Kate Freeman Haslam (Class of 2006).

Off week of football gives time for reflection on the season

For the third since the season opener back on Aug. 19 at Paulson Stadium, the football Gamecocks of Ron Duncan have an open Friday night. 

The first and third are on the schedule published long ago. The middle was Statesboro’s choice. If nothing else, our Roosters are getting plenty of rest and should be fresh for the stretch drive.

Right now the key is to get through the next three games injury-free and fine tune some things. 

Jefferson County will be here on Nov. 3. 

Things have gone pretty good thus far in 2017. 

Cross country finally gets a meet completed

After a complete cancellation of one meet and a pair of incomplete meets, the SCHS cross country team of Cindy LeMaster finally got a complete meet in on Sept. 28 when they claimed a win at a three way meet in Claxton. 

The team also participated in a makeup of the Ray Miller Invitational at Magnolia Springs in Millen on Sept. 30, but without a complete team.

The Red and White will next be in action on Oct. 11 when it hosts a meet at its new home course at the Black Creek Scout Reservation on Poor Robin Road.  The meet is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. 

Canetto named Region 4AA Player of the Year

In a seldom seen move, the Region 4AA softball coaches opted for a player on a region season runner-up instead of region champion for top honors when the skippers named SCHS senior Kara Canetto the 4AA Player of the Year at a meeting last week.  

Joining Canetto on the All-Region Softball Team were sophomore pitcher Sarah Beasley, senior catcher Maggie Hafer, and senior second baseman Payton Ward.

Few and far between are the times both the Player of the Year and the Pitcher of the Year do not come from the region champion. 

Finally, a meaningful game on the schedule

The early games are what they are. 

We easily won the two football games against the two schools from the Low Country across the Savannah River. Then Statesboro wouldn’t play. Finally, 4AA play opened on Sept. 15 and the end result has been 99-0 in those two games.

Now comes along a game with some buildup. Friday night Kelly Memorial Stadium will showcase a pair of teams 2-0 in region play. One team is going to go to 3-0. Three region wins made the playoffs last season. Someone can really make a statement.

Gamecocks record seconds straight shutout, whip Laney 49-0

Once mighty Laney put up barely a fight last Friday night as they surrendered 402 rushing yards and nearly 500 total yards to the red hot and third-ranked Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan in a 49-0, 4AA, win by the Roosters in Lucy C. Laney Stadium. SCHS improved to an overall 4-0, 2-0 in Region play, and now prepares for a big battle with Harlem’s Bulldogs (4-1, 2-0) in Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday evening.

Pounding out rushing yardage seemingly at will the Gamecock ground game accumulated 402 yards on a mere 34 carries for a healthy 11.8 per carry average.

Hall of Fame to induct four Sept. 29

Featuring a group of inductees whose playing days cover five decades with graduation dates spanning 1958- 2006, the Screven County Athletic Hall of Fame will induct four new members tomorrow evening at its annual banquet concluding at halftime of the SCHS-Harlem football game. 

The inductees are Bobby Cannon (Class of 1958), Don Tyre (Class of 1965), Matthew Sheley (Class of 2003), and Kate Freeman Haslam (Class of 2006).

Hot Harlem here looking for the upset

Bringing with it the top two rushers in Region 4AA, the upstart Harlem Bulldogs (4-1, 2-0) will come to Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday night looking to prove themselves as not merely a region playoff contender but a region championship contender.

Waiting on them will be the third-ranked Screven County High School Gamecocks (4-0, 2-0) for what is the annual Hall of Fame Game.           

Harlem downs softball Lady Gamecocks, playoffs begin Sept. 27

Falling to Harlem yet again, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Jim Randall Doyle earned a regular season 4AA runner-up spot despite the 10-5 loss in Harlem on Tuesday. 

Still the Lady Gamecocks will host a first round Region 4AA playoff series on Wednesday, Sept. 27, with a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m.

The opponent will be third seed Jefferson County, an 11-2 winner over Westside-Augusta on Tuesday.

Football rolls on, softball post season begins

It will not be the state playoffs and they did not win the 4AA regular season crown, but nevertheless the Lady Gamecock softball team is hosting a first round region playoff series next Wednesday, Sept. 27. 

By virtue of that fact, they will be in the state playoffs on Oct. 4 for the 12th consecutive season and the 14th time in 17 seasons of the sport.

Lady Gamecock cheerleaders open in winning style

Throwing what Coach Vette Rountree proclaimed, “Honestly …probably the best first competition ever,” the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheer squad of Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison walked away with the Cheer Dawg Classic AA Division at Toombs County on Sept. 16.   

To follow up on their season-opening victory, the squad will travel to Dublin on Saturday, Sept. 23, to participate in a competition at West Laurens High School.

With just six combined juniors and seniors in the starting lineup, Rountree and Harrison really did not know what to expect from their youthful group.

Gamecock defense stifles Butler, offense scores 50

Holding their guests to negative 28 yards rushing and negative 2 total yards, the third-ranked SCHS Gamecocks rolled past visiting Butler’s Bulldogs by a 50-0 score at Kelly Memorial Stadium on Sept. 15. 

With a win in their 4AA opener now under their belt, the Roosters will travel to Augusta Friday night to face the always-tough Lucy Laney Wildcats in another region contest.

Softball sweeps Grovetown, falls to Statesboro

With Irma playing heck with their schedule, this week the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle finished last week with a record of 13-4 as they swept AAAAAA Grovetown on Sept. 6 before falling to AAAAA Statesboro 3-2 at Mill Creek on Sept. 7.

The team’s final three scheduled regular season home games were cancelled or postponed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday’s cancellation with AAA Southeast Bulloch is scheduled to be made up on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m. Seniors will be honored in a pregame ceremony.

Hopefully things will now return to normal

As I followed scores on various websites Friday night, I kept finding that word – canceled -- when I came to Screven County vs. Statesboro. 

Every time I saw that word I kept wondering why we were not playing, or why we did not at least play on the previous night. We even offered to play on Thursday.

From across the river, apparently it was Friday night or not at all unless you were Southeast Bulloch.

SCHS coaches present and past featured in Football Daily

A pair of SCHS Gamecock football coaches -- one present and one past -- have been recently highlighted as part of the Georgia High School Football Daily’s feature “Four Questions.”

On Aug. 25, current head coach Ron Duncan was the interview while on Tuesday, Sept. 5, Mark Daniel, now of Rutland in Macon, was the feature. 

Both coaches spotlighted experiences in Sylvania at SCHS in many of their answers.
