Landrum loses defensive battle against Chesnee, 17-0

Published 5:43pm Monday, October 8, 2012

Heading into the Landrum-Chesnee matchup, one might have thought it would’ve been about offense.
That wasn’t the case in the battle for the top spot in the 1-2A region on Friday night. Instead, the game turned into a defensive battle as Chesnee made enough plays to win the game 17-0.
After winning three straight consecutive weeks, the Cardinals fell short against rival Chesnee. The Cardinals’ defense did a good job on an Eagle offense that had been soaring over opposing defenses.
The problem was the Eagles did a good job on defense as well.
Landrum was held in check during the game, and the offense never found the endzone. Starting quarterback Aaron Bryant returned and ran for 106 yards. Peyton McCarter added 34 yards on the ground.
Bryant also passed for 59 yards.
