There is nothing like a game with Lakewood to turn a high school football season around.  Marlboro County has used the Gators more than once to do just that.
Coach Dean Boyd hopes that Friday night's 42-13 win over Lakewood will bring a change in fortune to his 2015 team.
"It was a very good effort by the defense.  On offense, we weren't really in sync but did enough to get the win," said Boyd.
"After the last three weeks, we will celebrate any kind of win," he said.  The Bulldogs had lost the previous three games by more than 20 points.

Under perfect conditions, it would be difficult for this Marlboro County High football team to defeat the top-ranked Hartsville Red Foxes.  Friday night was far from ideal weather.
With the monsoonal rains that hit South Carolina over the weekend just kicking into high gear, the Bulldogs fell to the Foxes, 34-12.

Bulldogs still playing despite the weather

As of 1 p.m. Friday, the Marlboro County - Hartsville football game will take place despite the rainy weather.  The Bulldogs and Red Foxes are scheduled to kick off at 7:30 tonight at Kellytown Stadium, near Hartsville.
