Marlboro County breaks streak against Scots

For the Marlboro County Bulldogs and their fans, last Friday was very sweet.  The Bulldogs snapped a losing streak to Scotland County that dated back to 2011, coming from behind for a 41-25 victory.
"This was a big one for us.  We haven't had any success against Scotland in a while and given how close the communities are to each other, that has been a tough pill to swallow," said MCHS head coach Dean Boyd.
