Chester rolls up offense in blowout

INDIAN LAND -- The Chester Cyclones piled up 427 total yards and 22 first downs to rout the outmanned Indian Land Warriors 52-0.

The Cyclones took nearly the entire first quarter to get their offense going, but once they got started, points were not a problem.

Quarterback Eugene McCaskill led the Cyclones' offensive attack. He completed 6-of-12 passes for 159 yards and three touchdowns. He added another 33 yards on the ground on seven carries and scored on a 27-yard run.

All three of McCaskill's touchdown passes came in the first half. He opened the scoring with a 37-yard pass to C.C. Whitlock to make it 8-0 with 2:05 remaining in the opening period.

After his touchdown scamper, which made it 14-0, he passed for the next two Cyclone scores. The first went to Devin Jackson for 55 yards and the second to Maurice Hinton for 33 yards.

The Chester defense was dominating. It allowed Indian Land only 88 total yards and five first downs.

Indian Land played well in the opening quarter. It made some first downs, and made the Cyclones work hard for what they got on offense.

"We played hard all night, and we did not give up," Indian Land coach Mark Mayer said. "We played more physical as the game went along. Playing a quality opponent like Chester will help us as we get ready for our conference games."
