Big plays lead Gamecocks over Knights on Homecoming

With all five of their scoring plays longer than 40 yards, the unbeaten and sixth-ranked SCHS Gamecocks left the visiting Windsor Forest’s Knights in the proverbial rear view window Sept. 18 in a 32-0 Homecoming victory at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
With the non-region schedule now done, the Roosters will welcome Jefferson County’s Warriors here this Friday night in the Region 3AA lidlifter for both teams.
Was speed the difference?

Strap it on, whoop it up; 3AA play begins in earnest

So far the ride has been smooth and easy with very, very few bumps.
In fact, I can really think of but one real bump in the road so far. The drive is about to get a little tougher.
But, while the drive so far has been all about practice; about getting to this point ready to go with a full tank of gas and plenty of experience, Friday night the drive gets serious.
Now the destination is the postseason football playoffs and maybe a repeat as region champ.
Looking into the numbers (remember that numbers can be deceptive) this drive is going to be very, very bumpy.

With coach Vette Rountree calling it “probably our best first competition ever,” the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders of Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison took second place from among seven AA teams participating at West Laurens on Sept. 19.
The Red and White will be at Effingham County this Saturday.
Traveling to the site of the Nov. 7 Region 3AA competition, SCHS finished the competition with 225 points (including 10 points of deductions for a fall), second to defending 3AA champion East Laurens’ 244. Close behind in third was another 3AA school, Metter, with 220.

Holding off home-standing Metter with a key 10-7 3AA win Tuesday, the softball Lady Gamecocks of Billy Pollock improved to 5-0 in the region and put themselves in the driver’s seat for a home state playoff series beginning on Oct. 14.

Rejuvenated Windsor Forest here to battle state-ranked Gamecocks

Fresh from ending their 25-game losing streak with a resounding 21-0 whipping of 2AA Groves last week, the 3AAAA Windsor Forest Knights will invade Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday night to face the Class AA seventh-ranked Screven County Gamecocks in what is the Roosters’ annual Homecoming game.
For SCHS head coach Ron Duncan, the game boils down to getting through the game healthy and avoiding a look forward to next week’s region-opening encounter with the Jefferson County Warriors.

The team is in Claxton this Sept. 17 afternoon and will host its first meet of the season on Sept. 23 at 4:30.
Despite the two divisions (A-AA and AAA-AAAAA), all runners competed against each other giving all involved the chance to get more prepared for larger meets such as the region competitions.

Homecoming this week & on to region play next week

Just when it seemed that a tightly contested contest was about to break out last Friday night at Kelly Memorial Stadium, the weapons of the Rooster offense and the strength of the Dirty Bird defense took over.
In lieu of the nail biter, another rout took over to the tune of SCHS-49 and Wade Hampton-7.
You were there or surely you were listening on the radio.

Gridiron homestand cranks up

In the first game of what is a rare football three-game homestand that will culminate with a visit by the Jefferson County Warriors on Sept. 25, the red hot Screven County Gamecocks will receive an appearance from interstate foe Wade Hampton’s Red Devils from Varnville, S.C., Friday night.

2-0 and counting as Red Devils are in our house Friday

Fresh from a victory that came easier than even the most die-hard Rooster fan could have imagined, the SCHS Gamecocks will look to go 3-0 Friday night for the second consecutive season.
Still the question must continue, “Are we that good or our first two opponents that bad?”
Obviously, the verdict is still more than out on that question -- the answer may come this week.

Softball winning streak now at five; 2-0 in region

Banging out 15 hits and stealing 10 bases, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks made short work of home-standing Dublin with a 14-4 Region 3AA win in Dublin Tuesday.

The 3AAA Patriots enter the contest at 1-1 and are coming off a 27-20 win over 2AAAAA Richmond Academy last week.
“Last week we went Monday-Wednesday,” said Duncan. “It was as good an off week as I can remember. I think we made real progress in all areas. We gave the kids Thursday off because of the JV game and the coaches went out scouting Friday.”

Duncan’s Gamecocks make a return to the Patriots’ Battlefield

Friday night Ron Duncan’s Screven County football Gamecocks return to Augusta and Westside High School’s football stadium The Battlefield for the first time since Oct. 18, 2013. On that night nearly two years ago, a seeming crime was committed in the name of football by our Roosters.
The crime you ask? Impersonating a football team I say.

SCHS routs Islanders 57-6 in 2015 opener

With their first six possession totaling a mere 26 plays, the home-standing Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan nevertheless scored on all six as they ran to a 41-0 halftime lead en route to a 57-6 rout of the visiting St. John’s, S.C., Islanders.
Opening their 2015 season in grand fashion, the Roosters will have this week off as they prepare for the AAA Westside Patriots at The Battlefield in Augusta on Sept. 4.

Next week the Red and White will travel to 3AA opponent Dublin on Tuesday, then host AAAAA South Effingham and region foe Swainsboro on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and Thursday, Sept. 3, respectively.

The Gridiron Gamecocks ‘survive’ season opener

The worry -- which I don’t think was ever really on anyone’s mind -- never materialized.
From the outset, the red-hot Gamecocks were never threatened last Friday in their season opening win over the visiting St. John’s Islanders. The final score of 57-6 was not nearly what it could have been. In fact the 65-year-old team record of 72 points in a game could easily have been surpassed. That was certainly no reason to allow that.

Screven County fans anxiously awaiting the upcoming kickoff

Football is not the only game on the SCHS agenda this fall; there are three other sports with a full schedule on tap.
Softball already has played four games; the first cross country meet is Sept. 3; and the first cheer competition is Sept. 19.
Despite all of the activity among the sports of those clad in the Red and White in the fall of 2015, one thing is for certain, the most anticipated event is Friday night’s kickoff against the visiting St. John’s, S.C., Islanders.
