Devin Gillespie makes a touchdown-saving tackle on Central’s Jalen Robinson during the county rivals’ game Friday. Central fell to Cheraw after a fourth-down pass attempt was intercepted for a touchdown. “We should have punted,” coach Trent Usher said. “We have one of, if not the best, defenses in AA football.”
Two plays the difference in Cheraw victory

Central followed a familiar script Friday, costly offensive mistakes and a crucial missed tackle resulted in a 14-12 loss to rival Cheraw.
“We can’t put the ball on the ground and throw to wrong-colored jerseys,” said Central coach Trent Usher.
A fumble on the center-to quarterback exchange gave Cheraw the football at Central’s one.
The Central defense held for two downs before Zion Baylor scored for Cheraw with 7:16 remaining in the fourth quarter.
The crucial interception came with 6:40 remaining in the game.
