HHS vs Cheraw FB

Hartsville kicker Caleb Caldwell (35) puts his foot into the ball in the opening kickoff as the Red Foxes defeated the Braves 57-7 Friday night at Kelleytown Stadium.

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Missing one or two games because of the results of Tropical Storm Florence was one thing, but the prospect of missing a third consecutive game was just on in the cards.

So it came as a great surprise last Tuesday when Red Fox officials announced it had found an opponent in Cheraw and they would travel to Kelleytown to boot.

Hartsville made the best of the situation with a 57-7 romp over the Cheraw Braves Friday night in non-conference action.

“We’re just real thankful that Cheraw agreed to play,” said Coach Jeff Calabrese. “They had an Horry County opponent in Aynor and couldn’t play.”

Hartsville was in the same boat with the Braves as Myrtle Beach was the original opponent on the Red Foxes’ schedule.

Hartsville scored touchdowns in just about every manner possible.

They scored with the run and by the pass; the defense recorded a scoop and score, and pinned the Braves against their own end zone and scored a safety. As if this wasn’t enough, the Red Foxes even scored on a kick-off return for the first time this season.

Hartsville had 369 yards of total offense, scoring seven touchdowns by six different players.

Collins Bishop (2), Tiyon Evans(2), Lacy Josey, Dariyan Pendergrass, Darian McMillian and Deetric Miller each breached the goal line. Evans’ second touchdown was on special teams.

Hartsville averaged 9.5 yards every time they touched the ball. The Red Foxes used nine different running backs and two different quarterbacks.

The defense was also stingy giving up just one score, while picking up eight points on a scoop and score and the afore-mentioned safety.

The Red Foxes will travel to Bennettsville next week to take on Marlboro County in the Region 6 opener.
