Landrum seeks tonight to overcome loss last week

Published 10:17pm Thursday, October 11, 2012

The Landrum Cardinals (3-4 overall, 3-1 in region play) will strive tonight, Friday, Oct. 12, to get back on their winning streak after losing to Chesnee 17-0 last week.
The Cardinals play the Blacksburg Wildcats (4-4 overall, 3-4 in region play) at home tonight.
The matchup could be tight as Blacksburg and Landrum have close state rankings and both beat Carolina and Liberty this season.
Blacksburg beat Liberty 26-7 in region play last week while Landrum lost to the Chesnee Eagles, allowing Chesnee to take the top region spot last week. Landrum also beat Liberty in a closer match a few weeks ago that ended 33-29. Liberty led the Cardinals at halftime 22-7 with Landrum coming back in the second half to take the win.
Blacksburg beat Carolina Academy 49-34 while Landrum beat Carolina Academy 26-18.
Both Blacksburg and Landrum lost against Broome; Blacksburg lost 17-14 while Landrum lost to Broome 42-0.
Prior to Landrum’s loss over Chesnee last week, the Cardinals were on a three-game winning streak in Region 1-2A play. Landrum beat Powdersville 29-19 on Sept. 28 in its homecoming game.
Tonight’s game starts at 7:30 p.m.
