MCHS - Scotland game cancelled

Due to a tornado watch that is in effect through game time, the Bulldogs' annual grudge-match with Scotland County won't happen this year.  The game had been moved to Thursday, in hopes of missing the bad weather.  However, a thunderstorm hit Bennettsville very near the 7 p.m. scheduled kickoff.  The coaches then rescheduled the contest back to the initial start time of 7:30 Friday night.

With storms again in the forecast and now the tornado watch, MCHS athletic director and head football coach Dean Boyd cancelled the game shortly after 2 p.m. today.

Nine months of preparation and anticipation for a  chance at redemption turned to disappointment for the Marlboro County High football team Friday night.
The Bulldogs could not contain Carvers Bay, falling in the regular season opener 46-28 at McAlpine Stadium.
"We missed a boatload of tackles.  We were out of position on other plays.  Carvers Bay hit on several deep passes, something we have been focused on preventing," said head coach Dean Boyd.

"It is hard to believe it is game week," said Marlboro County head coach Dean Boyd on Monday.  "We look forward to it all year, but this last few weeks have been a blur."

Marlboro County High's football team got its first taste of action against an opponent Saturday morning, hosting West Florence in a controlled scrimmage.
Like most early season scrimmages for the Bulldogs, the coaches gave the team a mixed review.
"I saw a bunch of good things, stuff that we can build upon.  There were also a lot of mistakes but those should be things we can work to correct," said head coach Dean Boyd.
