Last Thursday evening the Marlboro County High football team had their first opportunity to play against a live opponent. The team traveled to Buford High School near Lancaster for a two-team scrimmage.
"I thought we looked pretty good on both sides of the ball last Thursday. We had some big plays on offense and the defense was solid for most of the scrimmage," said coach Collins.
The Bulldogs scored against Buford on several long runs right up the middle of the defense. Ismael Sloan and Jacardo Riggins led the rushing attack.
The passing game also got in the scoring act, with the Bulldogs hitting a screen pass for a 60-yard touchdown later in the scrimmage.
On defense, the Bulldogs limited the Yellow Jackets to short yardage for much of the scrimmage.
Late in the action, Buford did have a long run and also scored on a pass when the Bulldogs’ defensive backs had a breakdown in coverage.
