Sports news for Screven County and surrounding areas.

Wrestlers fall in first home match

With dwindling numbers and just two more matches before the Area 2AA Traditional Tournament, the SCHS wrestlers of Coach Matthew Sheley hosted Calvary Day and Swainsboro in duals matches Tuesday afternoon at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium.

The team was scheduled for a duals match at Statesboro High Wednesday and will close the regular season at the Sweet Onion Tournament at Toombs County Friday and Saturday.

The area traditional tournament is Jan. 26-27, also at Toombs.

Gamecocks shine in all-star Border Bowl loss

One of the best senior classes to ever don a Screven County Gamecock helmet represented the county well in the fifth annual Border Bowl all-star game Saturday as Team South Carolina topped Team Georgia 32-25 with the deciding score a 90-yard interception return.

Defensive back DeJuan Bell of North Augusta’s fourth-quarter scamper into the opposing end zone did seal the deal for South Carolina on Jan. 6 at Lucy C. Laney Memorial Stadium, but the five SCHS Gamecocks more than did their part for Team Georgia.

Undefeated Glenn Hills rolls Gamecocks

Undefeated and No. 1-ranked Glenn Hills came to the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium Tuesday night, survived a quarter and a half scare from the home-standing Screven County Gamecocks but nevertheless left with a 16-0 record. 

The Roosters of Arthur Davis ended Tuesday at 7-8 overall and 2-4 in Region 4AA play.

The Rooster schedule continues to be busy as Laney will host SCHS Friday night before the Gamecocks take a break from their 4AA schedule for a return engagement with Long County on Saturday, this one in Ludowici. Jan. 16 will have the team in Portal.

Gamecocks have rough go of it at area duals

Screven County’s Gamecock wrestlers had a very disappointing day in the Area 1-AA duals tournament’s first day at Vidalia High School as they lost all three of their matches.

The team is scheduled to be at Calvary Day this Jan. 11 afternoon for a duals tournament.

Between injuries, quitting, and ineligibility Matthew Sheley’s grapplers filled but seven weight classes in two of the three dual matches Friday. 

“This has definitely been a frustrating season,” said Sheley, “but we will continue to work hard with the kids that we have.”

UCF – ‘The pet at the end of the mall’

Save for some “who cares” All Star games, all of college football is said and done and a national champion has been crowned. 

There is no longer a mythical championship in the FBS, there is a legit one. 

I know that my MEAC champion North Carolina A&T (see the Telephone of 12/7) Aggies finished the season at 12-0 with a win in the Celebration Bowl, but they ended up with no legit claim.

The streak is over after 97 straight losses

Storming out to an insurmountable 14-1 lead after the first eight minutes of play, the Screven County High School Lady Gamecocks of Coach Stephanie Davis downed visiting Portal’s Lady Panthers by a 39-24 count at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium on Dec. 27. 

In the process, the Red and White picked up their first win since Feb. 13, 2013, and ended what may have been the longest girls’ basketball losing streak -- 97 games -- ever in the state of Georgia.

Gamecocks take two of three to end the calendar year

Improving to 6-5, the SCHS Gamecocks of coach Arthur Davis took the measure of Portal 47-43 on Dec. 27 and East Laurens 65-51on Dec. 29 as the year ended but fell to AAAAA Statesboro 60-44 on Dec. 28. 

After a trip to Augusta to face Butler on Tuesday, Jan. 2, the team will travel to Westside on Friday and Jefferson County on Saturday before coming back to the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium on Jan. 9 to host Glenn Hills. All are 4AA games.

Gamecock wrestlers have area duals this weekend

Beset by, among other things, injuries, the SCHS Gamecock wrestling team of Matthew Sheley will travel to Vidalia Friday to begin the Area 1AA Duals tournament. 

The area finals will be on Saturday at Jeff Davis. 

The next regular season match for the Gamecocks will be on Jan. 11 at Calvary Day in Savannah.

SCHS was scheduled to participate in a duals tournament at Swainsboro High School on Dec. 30, but between injuries and out of town travel Sheley elected to not attend as the Gamecocks would be forfeiting eight weight classes. 

No doubt the biggest story to end the calendar year

Whether there has been a lot or a little going on for the past few weeks, there is no doubt the year end’s biggest news was a victory for the Lady Gamecock basketball team. 

Last Wednesday, Dec. 27, by a count of 39-24, the Lady Gamecocks whipped Portal. The streak is over.

To pick up on what I said last week, to win a game you have to win a game. 

Now that the team has won a game, they should be able to win more. This win does not mean everything has changed, but they will not be looking for ways to lose at the end anymore.

LSRA to hold Feb. 10 bass fishing tourney

Bi-state group the Lower Savannah River Alliance will host a Bass Tournament and membership drive event on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018.
This tournament will be a great opportunity to support a worthwhile cause: the alliance’s mission to promote ecotourism throughout the seven-county region, utilizing the Savannah River as a resource while encouraging its conservation. LSRA relies on individual and business donations and hopes to promote membership to support their operations.

Johnson signs early with South Carolina for football

Tyquan Johnson did not waste any time in his decision to go from being a Gamecock to, well, being a Gamecock.
Under the Twitter posting by the Southeastern Conference’s South Carolina Gamecocks, Johnson, a three-star receiver for the Screven County Gameocks, inked during the early signing period Wednesday morning to play for Will Muschamp.
The Twitter account reads, “Once a Gamecock, always a Gamecock! Welcome to the family.”

Gamecock hoops whip Jenkins County again

Standing at 3-4 on the young season, the SCHS Gamecock basketball team of Arthur Davis picked up a win over Jenkins County on Saturday night by a count of 69-57 at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium.  
The Red and White teams will be in Brooklet tonight, Dec. 21, to face AAA Southeast Bulloch before hosting Portal on Dec. 27.  
Davis’ troops will play ARC in Statesboro on the 28th and play at East Laurens on the 29th. Those games are boys only.

Basketball ready to hit region play almost exclusively

As another banner calendar year ends for the athletic program at Screven County, remember region titles in cheerleading, cross country, football, and girls’ tennis. Remember region runner-up finishes in boys tennis and softball. Remember third place finishes in soccer and boys track.  
Of course, between the fall and spring sports comes basketball.

GACA tabs Canetto for second consecutive year

For the second consecutive season SCHS Lady Gamecock Kara Canetto has been named to the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association First Team Class AA All State team.

Gamecocks blast Harlem in region basketball opener

Rolling to a 38-21 intermission lead and quickly stretching that advantage to 20 early in the third quarter, the SCHS Gamecock basketball team of Arthur Davis rolled to a 62-49 win in their 4AA opener against the Harlem Bulldogs in the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium Tuesday night.

The team will be back in action this Dec. 14 evening when T.W. Josey comes for another region contest.

ABC Team again dominated by Gamecocks

In case you missed it, the All Region 4AA football team came out a short time ago. 

If nothing else you read about it in this publication. There were no less than 18 Screven County Gamecocks named either Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, First Team, Second Team, or Honorable Mention. 

Between SCHS and Jefferson County, there was little room for the “best of the rest” when it came to 4AA.

Kashawn Robinson named 4AA Player of the Year

Far and away the leading tackler for the accomplished Screven County Dirty Bird defense, senior middle linebacker Kashawn Robinson was named the 2017 Region 4AA Player of the Year on Nov. 30 at a meeting of the region football coaches. 

Also grabbing a top honor was the 2016 4AA Player of the Year CJ Wright as he was named the region’s Defensive Player of the Year for 2017.

What about the undefeated champions of the MEAG? Where are they?

On Sunday, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee was given the task of picking the best four teams in the land to vie for the national championship of the NCAA’s FBS football division.

As expected the top three were ACC champion Clemson, Big 12 (10) champion Oklahoma, and SEC champion Georgia. 

The question was whether Big 10 (14) champion Ohio State or SEC power Alabama would get the fourth seed. 

Unless you have been on the dark side of Remus you know that Alabama got the nod.
