Football: Lake City at Crestwood

Site: District 2 Memorial Stadium. Time: 7:30 p.m.

Lake City notes: The Panthers (3-1) opened the season by upsetting defending Class 3A state champion Wilson. But a bench-clearing brawl had dire consequences for the teams when the High School League banned both schools from state playoff participation this season … LC edge 1A East Clarendon 8-6 and dropped an 18-12 decision to 2A Kingstree with many players serving suspensions for their roles in the ugly incident. Last week, with a full deck in play again, the angry Panthers decked a good Manning team, 54-14 … Like Blythewood a year ago, Lake City will approach every remaining game with a chip on its collective shoulder … The Panthers scored by land and air, on defense and special teams vs. Manning. LC had a 34-7 lead by halftime, and limited the Monarchs to 56 yards and one first down in the opening 24 minutes. Shon Carson was the big gun, running for 154 yards and three touchdowns.

Crestwood notes: The Knights (3-1) won for the third week in a row, ripping 4A South Florence 41-7. Terrence Wilson flashed for 149 yards and three touchdowns on just eight carries. Brother Treginald Wilson had 44 yards rushing on four carries, and was 2-for-2 passing for 101 yards and one TD. Damone Pringle was on the receiving end of both throws … Na’Im Johnson, Marquise Parker, Travis Jenkins and Darius Wallace were the headliners on defense. Johnson had a game-high 16 tackles. Parker had 12 tackles, one tackle for loss and two sacks. Jenkins chipped in 10 tackles, one TFL one sack and two interceptions. Wallace finished with nine tackles, one TFL and three sacks … On balance, Terrence Wilson has 639 yards rushing and 11 TDs, and is averaging 9.8 yards per carry. Treginald Wilson has 331 yards rushing and 206 yards passing, and is averaging 11.0 yards per carry and 41.2 yards per completion … Johnson leads the team with 46 tackles. Parker has 45 tackles, seven TFL and three sacks. Wallace has been a terror with 32 tackles, eight TFL and nine sacks.

Series history: Crestwood has beaten the Panthers three times in four outings, including last season’s tough 34-28 region triumph. Lake City’s lone success was by a 41-32 count in 2006.
