Camden notes: The Bulldogs (2-2) lost their second straight game last week – a 21-7 affair to neighboring Lugoff-Elgin in the annual “Battle of the Wateree River.” SaVonn Wingate was the offensive headliner for the Bulldogs vs. L-E with 120 yards rushing on 20 carries. Brandon Kersey, the new quarterback in place of injured Josh Council, had 85 yards passing and hit Marshall Harrelson 20-yard scoring pass for Camden’s only touchdown early in the fourth quarter … Wingate has 445 yards rushing and three TDs on 82 carries to date. Alvonta Jenkins is the top receiver with eight catches for 203 yards and two scores, but Marshall leads the team with three scoring catches … Jenkins has handled the punting chores adeptly, as well. He is averaging 36.6 yards on his 16 kicks so far … Chris Outten, Roland Johnson, Jerel Robinson and Sjahbar Stewart are playing well on defense. Outten leads the team with 46 tackles, Johnson has 41 tackles and six tackles for loss, Robinson has been credited with 28 tackles, seven TFL and two sacks and Stewart had 17 tackles, three TFL and three sacks.

Series history: The inter-county rivalry resumes after a six-season abeyance Friday when the Bulldogs head up US 521/601 into Lancaster County to face the Volunteers. Initially, the series was a hotly contested affair with the teams splitting the first eight meetings. Camden, however, has won nine of the last 10 outings in the on-again, off-again series beginning in 1988. The Bulldogs were 40-13 winners in the last meeting in 2001.
