Spirit Week sets tone for Homecoming at LHS

There’s definite cause for spirit around Loris High School with an undefeated football team and the annual rite of Spirit Week that always precedes the excitement of Homecoming. It’s the time when all kinds of shenanigans are allowed, within reason of course, as every student, teacher, class or grade level gets in on the act to boost school spirit in honor of the homecoming game. Every day brought something new as the students and staff participated in activities and daily “dress-up days.” Starting on Monday, Oct. 3, the students and staff got to support their favorite sports team by wearing the jersey of their favorite player. Tuesday the campus was littered with a bevy of rock stars, cartoon characters, and other ideals straight out PHOTOS BY LACY HARDEE / THE LORIS SCENE of the 1980s.

Nobody wants to see a child go hungry, yet thousands go hungry everyday, especially in undeveloped nations such as Haiti. And for the second year in a row, Lee Parrish is doing his best to see that those children in Haiti can have a nourishing meal every day. Parrish, along with his wife, Debbie, a schoolteacher and a graduate of Loris High School, are involved with the Feed the Hunger program, which was started by New Directions International. The organization equips church leaders with the resources to help provide at-risk children with a nutritious meal and environment in which to learn. Parrish is the area coordinator for the Grand Strand Pack-A-Thon, which begins next

The Loris Interfaith Task Force (LIFT) is an organization composed of members and clergy from churches across the Loris area. LIFT is deeply concerned about the severe political, economic, and moral issues facing not only the Loris community but also the country and all around the world. The group meets regu-

larly on the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 a.m. at the Loris First Presbyterian Church to discuss issues, plan joint church events, and pray for specific needs in the community and around the world. At the September LIFT meeting the report of two upcoming community events were discussed. Rev.


Thelma Todd: A servant dedicated to her calling BY LACY HARDEE FOR THE LORIS SCENE

The Voices of Praise choir and the Prince Chapel Church family invite everyone to come out and bring a friend and enjoy some good gospel singing on Oct. 30 at 4 p.m.

more churches and the community involved in their efforts to unite all the community’s churches in a common goal.

Recognizing one’s true calling early in life is something we all strive to achieve. To continue in that same calling without ceasing, especially at the age of 94, is nothing short of a miracle. Mrs. Thelma Todd however, sees it as nothing of the kind. Sure, she can tell you about a great many miracles she has seen, but her humble spirit would not allow her to say her life and accomplishments were worthy of recognition.

Anyone who knows “Ms. Thelma” knows of her passion to serve her God, Who she gave her life to on June 10, 1969, and has faithfully served Him ever since. “I remember it well. I was in Loris Hospital for some tests to help prevent a heart attack, and began to read a Bible and read John 3:16,” said Todd. “Right then and there, I knelt beside the bed and said this short prayer: ‘Lord, if Jesus is real, I want Him in my life right now,’ and He came into my heart right then.” Todd became close friends with Olive Johnson,

the wife of one of Loris’ first doctors, Dr. W.H. Johnson, and was baptized in the Johnson’s swimming pool. That started what was to become a lifelong friendship and a life of service together between the two women. The two became involved in a nursing home ministry, became prayer partners, and did other Christian activities that led several men and women to Christ. “I remember that we led one man at the nursing home to Christ and he passed away the next day,” said Todd. “The great thing

about that was we knew his family had the security of knowing he was with the Lord.” Todd had always been one to attend church, even as a youngster, thanks to her granddaddy, Bunyon Cox, who Todd said she loved very much. Todd grew up across the state line in North Carolina, just a few miles down Hwy. 66, outside Loris. It was at the age of 13 that she moved to Loris, entered Loris High School and graduated in 1933. It was also TODD, A2

OCTOBER 12, 2011


LHS: Activities during Spirt Week enjoyed by all LIFT: A group to unit churches and communities FROM A1 “Teacher Switch Day” when students were dress like their favorite - or not teacher and vice versa. Rumor has it that a certain teacher and a student were dressed almost identically. Go figure! On Thursday, each grade level dressed in different categories of costumes. The class of 2012 dressed as Greek gods or goddesses,

touting their superiority over their underclassmen. The junior class dressed as senior citizens, complete with white hair, glasses, and even a walker or two. The sophomore class wanted to prove its intellect and came to school dressed as nerds, right down to the suspenders, calculators and pocket protectors. And the freshmen, those newborns to the high school scene, all came as babies, some with diapers, baby bottles and

even the ever-present bib and pacifier. On Friday, Homecoming Day, the entire school was a sea of blue and gold as the student participated in Wacky Tacky Day and prepared for the battle of the homecoming game later that night. Apparently all the spirit of Spirit Week paid off, as the Lions took a big win on Homecoming night to remain unbeaten and instill more “Lion Pride” at LHS.

FROM A1 the service. Corder also is organizing a Community Choir to sing at the event and is seeking choir members from different area churches to take part. The group has already begun its planning for a 2012 Patriotic Community Service set for July 1, 2012. Rev Tim Osment of the Loris Presbyterian Church shared with the group that the Glad Trio of Bladenboro, N.C. have accepted his invitation to

attend and perform during the event. Rev. Carl Harris is awaiting confirmation from Sen. Jim Demint’s office regarding his invitation to be the special speaker during the event. Invitations are being extended to several local church groups to provide special singing at the event. The location has yet to be determined. Other areas of business, including a report of each church’s activities, saw discussion on the National Day of Prayer, slated for May 1, 2012 and the

monthly community prayer breakfast, which takes place every second Tuesday of the month at the Loris Shriners. New officers for LIFT were recently installed last month. Taking office were co-presidents, Rev. Tim Osment and Rev. Grady Corder, co-treasurers, Carroll Padgett and Jim Collins, and secretary, Vivian Graham. The LIFT group invites all churches and their leaders to join them for a time fellowship, support and prayer.

Todd: Sharing Christ a thrill for Thelma Todd FROM A1 that same year when Todd met and married Lewis Todd and began a life together in the Red Bluff area. Shortly after, the couple moved into downtown Loris to a home on Harrelson Avenue. The couple raised two children, a daughter Pat, and a son Bryan. The couple remained happily married for just one month shy of 63 years before they separated by the passing of Mr. Todd in 1999. The Loris Presbyterian Church was Todd’s home church where she was deeply involved with the children’s ministry, was president of Presbyterian Women, and an active prayer leader for many years. Todd is currently not only the oldest living member of her church, but has been a member there since 1943 making her also the member with the longest years of consecutive membership, possibly in its history. Todd said she has visited many other churches in her lifetime, and even went to Full Gospel Men’s meetings and Pentecostal churches. “It was there I learned of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and received it in November of 1969,” said Todd. “Every one of the gospels mentions that He who comes after Him will baptize in the Holy Spirit.” One of her favorite events was the communitywide services in Loris, usually around Thanksgiving, where everyone went to the

different churches in the area. Todd loved sharing Christ with all she met and on Jan.19, 1999, Todd began writing a column, “A Minute Sermon,” for the local newspaper, which continues today. Todd’s spiritual column has appeared in two local newspapers, including the Loris Scene for many years, and touched many lives with her gift and love for sharing Christ with others. When asked how she began writing her column Todd replied, “I was sitting down one Sunday and just started writing, not really planning to have anything published, but I felt urged to send them to the local papers and that’s how it all started.” However, prior to this interview for this article, Todd informed both newspapers that she would no longer be submitting her uplifting stories to the local media. “I feel it is time, that God has me going in another direction and has other things planned for me, so I’ll be available for Him to use me in another way,” said Todd. Today ‘Pommie,’ as those closest to her affectionately call her, divides her time between her McQueen Street home, where she has lived since 1964, and North Myrtle beach with daughter Pat, her grandchildren, and her great-grand children. Todd was asked to share what she felt was the most important event in all her 94 years, and since she was

no longer going to write her column, what she would love to say to her readers. These are her words, and we would expect no less from the person of Mrs. Thelma Todd: “The most important day was the day I accepted Jesus as my Savior. For the first time in my life, I realized I was a sinner. It changed my whole life. I would plead with anyone who doesn’t know Jesus to ask Him to come into their lives and be sincere. He will do for you the very same that He did for me. “It’s not all about going to church, but having a personal relationship with Him,” said Todd. “It is the most important thing in my life, and I wish that everyone would have the same walk with Him that I still enjoy today.”

Hunger: Pack-A-Thon set for Oct. 13-15 FROM A1 Thursday, Friday and Saturday with six shifts of almost 700 volunteers who will assemble and box meals designed for hungry children. Feed the Hunger brings the food and packaging equipment, and volunteers work on an assembly line to fill the packages with rice, soy, dry vegetables and a mixture of 21 vitamins and minerals. Scott Hahn of New Directions in Burlington, N.C., says the meals are designed to sustain a child if he or she has only one of the meals a day. Parrish says the volunteers also will help several area food pantries, including Helping Hand organi-

zations and Churches Assisting People in Conway, by bringing canned and boxed food. Last year, volunteers contributed 750 pounds of food, and Parrish hopes to at least double the pounds this weekend. Feed the Hunger hosted a Pack-A-Thon last October 2010 in Myrtle Beach. “We had a tremendous first event and packaged 106,920 meals to help starving children in Haiti. We believe we can go from 100,000 meals to 270,000 meals, but we will need involvement from groups and partial teams that were not able to help out last year,” said Parrish. Volunteers are asked to contribute $62 and two

hours of their time. The financial contribution pays for a child’s meals for a school year. Volunteers have “a hands-on opportunity to make a difference,” Parrish says. He cites the grim numbers that of the more than 6 billion people in the world, one-sixth are hungry. “It’s a distribution problem,” he points out, not one of food production. The 26-cents cost of the meals includes packaging and shipping. Acknowledging that the United States does have undernourished children, he says the problem here is not the same as starving children in many places. “The overall vision is to create awareness of global and local hunger,” he says.





Loris Middle School awarded monies for GEAR UP Program Loris High School Senior Spotlight


It is evident that Loris High School senior Laquita Grissett has what it takes to succeed in life. After all, her peers selected her as the president of the LHS student body this year. Grissett has set her goals high during her high school career, and has thus far had the work ethic to attain each one. That’s given her the confidence to seek her ultimate goal of making a difference in the world as a physician. With her plans set to attend the College of Charleston, Grissett definitely has the tools to carry her through four years of college and to be accepted at any medical school of her choosing. Her goal of becoming a doctor is certainly within her grasp. Not only is Grissett an excellent student, as evidenced by her designation as a member of Loris High School’s Key Club, but she’s

stayed busy in extra-curricular activities. Grissett has shown her dedication and school spirit to LHS as a member of the LHS varsity cheerleading squad her entire school career. The senior’s also applied her athletic talents as a member of both the LHS crosscountry team Laquita Grissett and the LHS track and field team. “I take pride in my Grissett lives in Loris hometown because it is with her mother, Cynthia where I was born and Clifton, and has a variety of raised.

The U.S. Department of Education awarded several middle schools in our area $3.5 million for the GEAR UP program. The Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs money will provide partnerships and services at high-poverty middle schools mostly along the I95 corridor. The grant is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post secondary education. The South Carolina GEAR UP program will

serve 3,623 seventh graders in 24 targeted schools: Whale Branch Middle, Johnakin Middle, Lee Central Middle, Haut Gap Middle, Robert Smalls Middle, Palmetto School, Loris Middle, Carver-Edisto Middle, Colleton County Middle, Creek Bridge Middle, Scott’s Branch Middle, CE Murray Middle, Ridgeland Middle, Williams Middle, Clay Hill Middle, Hemingway Middle, Hardeeville Middle, Spaulding Jr. High, St. George Middle, Kingstree Jr. High, Estill Middle, Darlington Middle, Military Magnet Middle, and J.V.

Martin Jr. High Schools. Eighty-five percent of these schools are along the I-95 Corridor in the area that a 2005 documentary dubbed the Corridor of Shame. The demographics of the schools participating in the GEAR UP program are 70 percent minority population, which compares to a state average of 36 percent. Eighty-one percent of the students are on free or reduced lunch when the state average is 60 percent. Only half, 50 percent, of students in the target schools transition from high school to college versus 66 percent statewide.

Prepare your home for cooler weather Fall has arrived and soon cooler weather will be making its way to South Carolina. Taking steps now to weatherize your home can save you energy and money when Old Man Winter comes knocking on the door. “Outside air can easily enter your home through cracks and other openings, causing your heating unit to work overtime in the cold weather,” said Juan Holmes, manager of conservation and energy efficiency. “Weatherizing your home before cold weather hits will help ensure lower energy use, which will save you money on your utility bills during the cooler months of the year.” Start your weatherization efforts by detecting air leaks in your home. Check for air leaks around windows, doors, ducts, vents and electrical outlets. Don’t forget to inspect your attic and basement for air leaks,

and examine where pipes lead out of the home under your kitchen and bathroom sinks. Weather stripping, caulk and extra insulation around ducts and pipes leading out of your home can help stop unwanted air flow. You should also install door sweeps on your exterior doors. For electrical outlets or switch plates, adding a foam gasket can be an easy fix to an air leak. Sealing air leaks will not only cut down on your energy use, it will make your home feel warmer when it’s cold outside. In addition to sealing air leaks, check to make sure you have adequate insulation to ward off the cold weather. Upgrading from three inches of insulation to 12 inches can cut heating costs up to 20 percent and cooling costs up to 10 percent. Consider installing insulated glass windows if you

currently have singlepaned windows. To find out if you have insulated windows, place a shiny object, like a key or a coin, against the window. If you see one reflection of the object in the window, it is a single-paned window. If there are two reflections, the window has two panes, or insulated glass. Properly fitted storm windows and window treatments are also effective in reducing energy use when it gets cold outside.

Ethanol fuel: A good idea, with some bad side effects O kay, we all agree that the environment is, or should be, very important to us all. We can also assume that all of us were made aware of the introduction of ethanol into our fuels, and its effects on the engines that run on them. The first statement I can agree with, but the second, not so much. I say that simply because I don’t remember any type discussion or referendum on the issue asking my opinion on it, or giving me a chance to hear both sides of the coin so as to decide for myself. However, like most of America, maybe I just didn’t care one way or the other. So often we, Americans that is, get things slid by us by our government and powerful corporations claiming its all for the sake of the greater good. We all know this to be true and like most prescription med-

icines, a list of adverse side effects come along with most of them. Let’s a A WRITER’S take look at it. First of BLOCK all, Ethanol is highly Lacy Hardee corrosive. It destroys fiberglass, aluminum, rubber, and even plastic. Ethanol is a blend of gasoline and ethyl alcohol. Ethyl alcohol is an excellent solvent and is hydroscopic, that is it absorbs water. Acting as a solvent, ethanol can damage the sealants used on older fiberglass fuel tanks. The dissolved sealants can be ingested by the engine, which can

cause damage, and fuel leaking from a tank into the bilge is a fire hazard. Fuel tanks built of other materials are not immune to problems. Ethanol has a cleaning effect on tanks that releases fine metallic particles, which will pass through most fuel filters. The dissolved metals will clog fuel injector nozzles and carburetors. Ethanol added to a fuel tank contaminated with water will cause expensive repairs. The water in the tank will combine with the ethyl alcohol to produce a noncombustible layer of liquid in the tanks that will stop most engines cold. Vehicles in storage are especially vulnerable, as the shelf life of ethanol gasolines is very short, only a couple of weeks. If you have a vehicle you only drive occasionally, then this is a problem. And suppose you are a classic car enthusiast and

like to take your car out on occasion? In fact, according to several studies, most cars from 1998 on down are not designed to run on ethanol fuels. The big problem is in ethanol’s corrosive properties. Older rubber hoses, fuel lines, metal or rubber, and the numerous rubber gaskets are all prey to breaking down and causing problems. Add to that the moisture problem that produces water in the gas tanks and fuel systems, and you can see the issues car owners are complaining about. However, the issues don’t just end at the effects on cars. There are several active lawsuits from boat owners as ethanol broke down the resins in their fiberglass gas tanks, destroying their marine engines. Additionally, those who deal in small gas engines for lawnmowers, edgers, and weed eaters have

quickly learned that, as Briggs & Stratton’s (BGG) website warns, “Ethanolblended gasoline can attract moisture, which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gasoline can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. B&S strongly recommends removing ethanol-blended fuels from engine during storage.” Like motorists, if landscaping tool owners put gasoline with more than 10 percent ethanol in their small engines, that immediately voids any factory warranties. Are we all going to go out and buy ethanol testers to test the amount of ethanol that is coming out of our favorite gas stations pumps? Sure we are, if we really want to know the true percentage of ethanol going into our cars. But we shouldn’t have to…I’m just saying.

I was dead serious, pun intended. “If anything happens to me, get rid of two-thirds of my clothes before anyone sees them,” I told my husband. I don’t want anyone to think badly of me when I’m gone. Which they would if they saw my closet as it is. It’s not that I overspend, I don’t. But I have tended to overeat a time or two. Or 27. Thus, there are three complete wardrobes in three different sizes in my closet. Three oddly-shaped women could live in there through all the changing seasons, if someone would just slide groceries under the door. The problem is the ‘never again’ mentality. You know… “I’m never again going to gain weight.” So, I need all new clothes in this size…whatever this size happens to be. And then there’s the

other ‘never again’ mentality that goes, “I’m never again going to lose COLUMN B weight” which has the Ettie identical Newlands result. Not to minimize the inbetween stage of needing a complete wardrobe during the gaining/losing process. Here’s the deal: gaining weight means gaining clothes. Losing weight also means gaining clothes. “Really, no final words for the children or the grandchildren?” my husband asked. “No pearls of wisdom to pass on?” “Nope,” I told him. “If you love me, just get rid of two sizes of clothes before anyone goes in my closet.” We didn’t even begin to talk shoes.

The American Dream is an ideal instilled in children across this great nation as they make their way through school. We have always been taught that hard work, persistence, and sacrifice are the keys to success and that, in America, the sky is the limit in regards to achieving that success. Today, though, our American dream is in jeopardy. We live in a society of over regulation, over taxation, and governmental favoritism in the business world. In 2012, we need a President in the White House who will lead the charge against these things and who will say “enough is enough!” I believe Herman Cain is just the right man for the job. After much research on Cain, I was very impressed to learn that he has decades of experience in the private sector, transforming failing corporations into thriving businesses. He has seen firsthand the damaging effect too much governmental intrusion can have. His position is one in favor of less legislation and regulation, and lower taxes. He knows that job creation and economic growth happen in the private sector and that the government should be supporting businesses, not stifling their potential. Despite Cain’s impressive resume, the main stream media doesn’t seem to want to give him any attention, even though he’s already won multiple straw polls in several states. We need a leader in Washington to stand up for the American Dream and to ensure that the liberties and freedoms we enjoy today will exist for generations to come. I stand for the American Dream, and if Herman Cain is as impressive as he sounds, then I definitely stand with him. There are so many great reasons to support this candidate. I really encourage you to learn more about Herman Cain at Marie Steffens Brentwood, TN

OCTOBER 12, 2011

Faithfulness instills courage and confidence T

he apostle Paul is one of my favorite disciples. Paul penned many words of encouragement and direction, which became part of God’s Word to us, but it was his confidence in his God that gave him the courage to face all he endured in his life. He indeed had fears like all of us, but Paul was certain the God he served was the God of all gods, and no matter what happened to him, his God would be exalted and His purpose would be fulfilled. Paul was speaking to the church of Philippi as he penned these following words from his prison cell, a cell he was placed in for simply being a believer in Christ: “Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel

without fear. It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodLAYMAN’S will. The latter do LINES so out of love, knowing Lacy Hardee that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. (Phil. 1:12-18)” Paul is proving to us that he knew without a doubt his suffering had purpose, and it was his confidence in God’s plan that allowed him to rejoice, despite his circumstances. Through all his infirmities, some of which the Bible never mentions,

Paul was sure of the final outcome and his eternal place with God Himself. If we grasp the confidence of Paul, and look at the big picture of God’s unfailing plan, we too can live a life full of courage to step up, step out, and step in to a world of lost and hurting people, and share the good news of Christ with all of them. It was Paul’s purpose, and so it is ours as believers in Christ. All Paul cared was that the gospel of Christ continued to be preached. Paul continued to impart the importance of Christ over our own lives in verses 19-26: “Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor

for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me.” Paul also left us with direction, calling us to live a life worthy of the gospel of Christ. He urges us to stand together and not be divided in the sharing of the gospel, as that will be our strength. “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you, or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved and that by God. For it has been grant-

ed to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.” Remember these words of Paul this week and give them daily thought: “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always, Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.” – Philippians 1:20 (NIV) Remember they were written from a jail cell, Paul was not sure if he will live or die, but he was confident that Christ will be exalted, no matter what the outcome. We all face fears that our lives will not amount to much or will be a source of shame, but Paul gives us hope. If Christ can be exalted in a first century prison, then what about our lives today? Take courage, for the expectation and hope from Scripture is that He can use your circumstances for His glory, giving you both courage and confidence to share the good news every day.

For my dear readers: the time has come when I must stop writing “A Minute Sermon.” I’ve always enjoyed sharing Jesus with my readers. My last message is that I wish I could have done more for Him. God willing, I pray I will soon see Him. My message today is still the same. The invitation is written to everyone that is on the earth. Jesus says, “No one can come to the Father by my Me.” (John 14:16) So all you have to do is say, “I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.” The only requirement is that you sincerely mean it and start living it. Romans 10:9-10 sums it up: “If you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth you confess you are saved.” Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!

Loris Lions move to 2-0 in conference BY BRANDY GRAHAM FOR THE LORIS SCENE

The Loris Lions faced Waccamaw last Friday night for their second region game of the season. The team used its new field house for the first time and sported new uniforms for the Homecoming game. The Lions came out ready to play and went straight to work to defeat the Warriors. Waccamaw received the opening kick-off and were quickly shut down by Lion defense that allowed only two yards of progression on the drive. The Lions took over on the 49-yard line and marched down the field. A combination of runs and a 20-yard pass from quarterback Kentrez Hilton to Mikel Soles setup the first of seven touchdowns for the Lions. Fred Braynt scored on an 18-yard run and Orlin Mejia was successful on the extra point. The Loris defense again made quick work of shutting down the Warrior’s drive. Loris’ offense returned to the field. The Waccamaw defense intercepted a Hilton pass, but was unable to capitalize on one of the few errors that the Lions made during the game. “We had a good game plan and they executed it well,” said Coach Jamie Snider. The Lions again had an opportunity to score and Fred Bryant was not wasting any time on the drive. Bryant ran for 55 yards on the first

The Loris defense held the Warriors for the remainder of the half including a fumble recovery by Trey Wilson. The Lions offense tacked on two more touchdowns to increase

their lead to 28 before the homecoming festivities began. Loris received the kick and again Bryant was not wasting any time. The senior running back ran for a 52-yard touchdown on the second play of the second half. Sophomore Ryan Bellamy

intercepted the first pass on the first possession of the Warriors and returned it for a touchdown. The Lions scored touchdowns in the first 48 seconds of the first half. The offense and defense were determined to seal the win. “This was the best game

that we have played to date. It all came together at the right time,” said Snider. Waccamaw answered with its only touchdown of the night to decrease the deficit to 42-7. The Lions began substitutions in its line-up as the fourth quarter began. The

underclassmen scored one touchdown and held the Warriors scoreless to close out the game. Levi Moody found the end zone on a 25yard run. The final score was 49-7 and the Lions moved to 2-0 in the conference. “We had fewer mistakes. We stopped ourselves in Marion. Tonight we scored on the opening drive and continued to play hard,” said Snider when asked about the play of his team. The Lions will travel to Mullins Friday night. The game is very important in determining the fate of the Lions in the post season. Under the new AA rules, all teams will make an appearance in the post season but will be seeded based on record. “Mullins is pretty balanced. They throw and run. We stop the run well and I will not be surprised if they throw the ball more,” said Snider. If the Lions defeat the Auctioneers Friday night, they will likely have a home game for at least the first round of the play-offs and possibly a bye if they are ranked in the top four of their division. The head coach is focused on Mullins alone for this week. “We have to do all we can do and not speculate about the play-offs,” said Snider. Fred Bryant was the leading rusher for the Lions with 169 yards on 16 carries. DL Griffin led the Lions in tackles with 10.
