Football: West Florence at Lugoff-Elgin

Site: Lugoff-Elgin. Time: 7:30 p.m.

West Florence notes: The Knight (2-0) return to the area after beating 24-20 last week … WF features a big, talent defensive line, starring Malliciah Goodman – a Clemson commitment … The big focus this season is to generate more consistent offensive production. So far, so good. WF has put 66 points on the board … Quarterback Paul Pizzuti and running back Josh McFadden are the veteran leaders in the backfield.

Lugoff-Elgin notes: The Demons (1-1) are coming off a turnover-marred 31-21 loss to Airport. L-E gave the ball away four times, and the host Eagles cashed three into points … Airport took a 24-21 lead on a 42-yard field goal, and sealed the deal with an insurance touchdown after an interception … Phillip Osborne had 13 carries for 68 yards.

Series history: L-E has never had success vs. the Knight from Florence, losing all six previous meetings. The Demons have only been close two times – dropping a 29-28 decision in the first game in 2002, and falling 10-7 in 2004. West Florence prevailed by a 28-6 count last year.
