Lugoff-Elgin notes: The Demons (3-1) made history of sorts last week – downing archrival Camden for the third straight year. The tone was set on the opening kickoff when Trent Hudson gave L-E great field position in Camden territory. A few plays later, Forrest Koumas made his only pass completion of the night count – hitting Julian Baxter with a 38-yard scoring strike. Koumas later scored on a 1-year run … The game belong to the Demons defense, which came up with five sacks and three interceptions – all by Davonte Alexander, who set a single-game school record with his thievery. Alexander return one pick for a touchdown late in the second quarter that staked L-E to a 14-0 lead at the break … Ryan Wannamaker had two of the Demons’ five sacks … Phillip Orborne paced the attack vs. the Bulldogs with 89 yards rushing on 18 carries. Hudson added 72 yards on 11 totes.
Brookland-Cayce notes: The Bearcats pulled off a stunning 20-6 upset win over Columbia last week to close out a 14-game losing streak and win for the first time under new coach Abby Bray … The junior passing combination of Kenyatta Castleberry and Jonathan Rumph was key to the B-C triumph at Memorial Stadium. Castleberry completed 10 of 20 passes for 142 yards and Rumph was on the receiving end of seven of the connections for 123 yards. The duo hooked up on a 13-yard scoring play with three seconds left in the first half that put the Bearcats in front (for good, as it turned out), 7-6 … Rodderickus Fanning led the team with 57 yards rushing, and closed out the scoring with a clinching 36-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter … The defense limited Columbia to 163 total yards. Demetrius Jackson, whose role is changing to more of a defensive presence, led the way with 12 solo tackles and three sacks. Rumph also contributed on the defensive side with three tackles and one interception. Gollie Felder had six tackles and one fumble recovery.
Series history: The teams are meeting for only the third time. L-E is 2-0 vs. the Bearcats. The Demons nipped B-C 42-41 in the first-ever clash in 1998 and then scored a 38-0 rout in 1999.
