Gamecocks fall short in opener
SYLVANIA -- Effingham County’s visiting Rebels ran off to a 21-0 third quarter lead and held off any comeback attempts by the Screven County Gamecocks to win 28-14 in front a large crowd at Kelly Memorial Stadium. A game that featured the debut of Rick Tomberline for the Rebels and Greg Manior for the Gamecocks featured an inordinate amount of first-game mistakes, with the Rebels overcoming theirs the most often and the most effectively. The Rebels might have put the game away as they took the second half kick and drove 38 yards for a score following a long kick off return.
