Wrestling competes in area duals tourney

The SCHS Gamecock wrestling team of Matthew Sheley traveled to Vidalia Jan. 3 to compete in the Area Duals Tournament and were ousted in consecutive matches.
The team was scheduled to be in action Wednesday at New Hampstead High in Savannah and will next take to the mat Jan. 14 when they travel to Burke County.
Facing two of the area’s top teams in their first two matches, the Red and White were unable to advance beyond their first two matches in Vidalia, falling in an extremely tight match to Dublin 36-33 after being shut out by East Laurens.

Austin in Border Bowl with Georgia, S.C. all stars

SCHS senior lineman Adam Austin, an All-State selection in 2012, has been chosen to play in the Georgia-South Carolina Border Bowl Game at Lucy Craft Laney Stadium Saturday, Jan. 11, as the kickoff is set for 1 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the gates.
“We are very excited about Adam playing in the game” said SCHS head football coach Ron Duncan. “He is a great representative of Screven County. I am very proud of him.”
The game will pit area all-stars from South Carolina and Georgia facing off.

SCHS squads return to their home court Friday

The new year on the hardwood mirrored the circumstances seen in 2013 for the Screven County basketball programs.
Both SCHS teams remained winless Tuesday on the road at region opponent Westside. The Gamecocks fell to the Patriots 69-44, while the Lady Patriots were too much for the Lady Gamecocks 75-44.
Laney visits the Harold Lee Scott Gym on the SCHS campus Friday with the girls game to tip off at 6 p.m. The SCHS teams continue region play at Harlem Jan. 17 and Westside comes to Sylvania Jan. 21.

An extra week to prepare for Westside game

With their backs already to the wall when it comes to repeating as Region 3AA champions, our Screven County Gamecock football team will have an extra week to prepare for the flexbone offense of the Westside Patriots and a chance to regroup after their Laney defeat Oct. 4.
Almost certainly controlling their own destiny as far as a home state playoff goes, though a Dublin win over Laney Nov. 1 could very much complicate that, the Gamecocks will need to go on the road and defeat the Pats to keep that hope alive.

SCHS downs unbeaten Harlem 35-13

Taking advantage of three big first half plays by the defense, the Screven County High School Gamecocks of Ron Duncan subdued the previously unbeaten Harlem Bulldogs by a 35-13 margin in the Region 3AA opener for each team at Bulldog Stadium Sept. 30.
SCHS now stands at 3-2 overall with their second consecutive victory.
In a rematch of the game that proved to be the region championship contest a year ago, the Lucy Laney Wildcats will be at Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday night.

Cheer squad claims victory

In their first true test of the season, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders of Mary Helen Harrison and Vette Rountree claimed the top spot from among seven Class AA schools at the spacious confines of the Toombs County Middle School Gymnasium Saturday.
Next in action on Oct. 12 at Putnam County High School, the site of the Region 3AA competition Nov. 9, the Red and White outdistanced second place Vidalia by a 215- 209 margin.

This one tomorrow night is really big

When you try to compete for a region championship, every game is big. When you set your standards high, there is always a long way to fall, so every time out is big.
By whatever standard one sets, the Lucy Laney-Screven County High School matchup at Kelly Memorial Stadium tomorrow night is big.
Is a region championship at stake?
Probably not and Ron Duncan is quick to say that. Who knew that the title was at stake this time a year ago?

Pirates pillage Gamecocks, 38-13

On a Friday the 13th in Baxley, the horror associated with the date all came to roost on the visitor’s side of Jimmy Swain Stadium.
The night saw the Roosters score on their first and last plays of the game, but there was nothing save misery in between as the home-standing Appling County Pirates soundly whipped the visiting SCHS Gamecocks by a stunning margin of 38-13.
Losers of two consecutive games, the Dirty Birds return to Kelly Memorial Stadium this week for Homecoming and another AAAAA team in the Windsor Forest Knights.

SCHS hopes to rebound against Windsor Forest

Suffering back-to-back losses for the first time under the tenure of head coach Ron Duncan, the SCHS Gamecocks will host 3AAAAA Windsor Forest Friday at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
It will be the annual Homecoming contest for the Roosters. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m.
As they make their first-ever trip to Sylvania, the Knights also will be looking to erase the blight of back-to-back losses in their only two contests of the season.

Lady Gamecock softball falls in key matchup

Ending innings with the bases loaded three different times, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks fell to visiting Westside Tuesday in a crucial Region 3AA contest. The loss means the best the Red and White can do is finish third in the regular season region race.
With their record now at 7-8 and 2-2 in region play, the SCHS regular season will wind up with a trip to Swainsboro today, Sept. 19, and a home date with the Lady Tigers Monday, Sept. 23. The final regular season region game will be in Dublin on the 25th and the final regular season game will be in Brooklet on the 30th.

Screven County football must regroup quickly

No Paige, no Cowlishaw, no Adande, no MacMullan, no Plaschke, not even ESPN, but let’s go “Around the Horn” on a variety of topics. Let’s do it without those nationally known sports writers from Denver, Dallas, Boston and Los Angeles. Let’s do it all on our own.
Maybe most important in the plethora of topics has to be the football Gamecocks. There were 26 seniors on last year’s 2012 Region 3AA championship team. An awful lot of them contributed an awful lot to that totally unforeseen 10-2 season.

Gamecocks face up-hill battle in Baxley

Looking to recover from a very tough come-from-ahead loss to AAAAA(A) Effingham County, the Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will again step up in classification as they travel to Baxley to tackle 1AAA power Appling County’s Pirates.
In addition to looking to rebound, the Roosters also will be looking to avenge their lone regular season loss, 45-34, from a year ago. Region runner-up to Pierce County in back-to-back seasons, the Pirates of former SCHS defensive coordinator J.T. Pollock are looking to break into the win column for the first time in 2013.

Rebels repulse Gamecocks 27-23

Scoring twice in the last five minutes of the game, including the final score with less than a minute to go, Effingham County’s home-standing Rebels outlasted the SCHS Gamecocks of Ron Duncan 27-23 handing the Red and White a bitterly disappointing outcome at Rebel Field Sept. 6.
Now standing at 1-1 on the young season, the Roosters will travel to Baxley Friday night to face 1AAA powerhouse Appling County.

Friday night – A chance for one team to rebound

A pair of teams coming off very, very disappointing losses will collide in Baxley’s Jimmy Swain Stadium Friday night when Ron Duncan’s Gamecocks line up against J.T. Pollock’s Appling County Pirates.
I have written before, when you have a bad loss in football (like this one just past); you have to wait an entire week to get back after it to make amends. In baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, tennis, etc. you seldom have to wait that long to get back at it. Just another thing that makes football tougher than the rest.

SCHS faces AAAAA Effingham in Springfield Friday

Making another tremendous step up in classification for an opponent, the SCHS Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will make the short trek to Springfield Friday night to face the AAAAA Effingham County Rebels of new coach Buddy Holder.
The Red and White will be looking for their second consecutive win of the young 2013 season and their fifth consecutive win over teams from Region 3AAAAA in the past two seasons. The Navy and White will be looking for their first win of the season and revenge from a 41-21 loss to SCHS at Kelly Memorial Stadium a year ago.

Second-half explosion catapults gridiron Gamecocks past Groves

Dragging through a first half that saw them trail 8-0 at intermission, the SCHS football Gamecocks of Ron Duncan scored 15 points in less than three minutes at the onset of the third quarter en route to a 34-8 pasting of the AAAAA Groves Rebels at Kelly Memorial Stadium Aug. 30 in the season opener for both teams.
The Roosters will spend this week preparing for a trip to Springfield to face another AAAAA foe in Effingham County Friday night at 7:30.

Lady Gamecock softball has key games coming up

Traveling to Harlem this Sept. 5 afternoon for a repeat of the Region 3AA championship series from a year ago, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Billy Pollock still stands at 4-5 on the season after another rainout Tuesday, this one at Jenkins County.
Next week the team will be in action in Waynesboro Monday; at home on Sept. 11 against Jenkins County; and in Dublin Sept. 12 for a crucial region contest with East Laurens.
A rain out in Dublin against the Lady Irish has been scheduled in Dublin for Sept. 25. All games are at 5 p.m.

Lady Gamecock softball wins three straight

After an inauspicious beginning that saw them lose four of their first five, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Billy Pollock came back to win three straight before falling to South Effingham Tuesday.
