Hartsville used the energy of homecoming to achieve victory against Marlboro County Friday night. The Red Foxes and Bulldogs found themselves in a defensive battle during the first half. The Bulldogs took an early lead after a big pass play that ended in a Zach Rogers field goal to take the lead 3-0 in the first quarter. However, that will be the last time any points would reach the visitor's side of the scoreboard.
The Red Foxes answered the score by marching down the field behind three big plays from three different running backs. The drive was capped off with a touchdown run by J'Shawn Anderson. Hartsville took the lead going into halftime 7-3.
Hartsville received the kick in the second half and never looked back. Anderson broke a run in the third quarter for his second score of the night stretching the lead to 14-3 Red Foxes. Marlboro had opportunities in the second but the Red Fox defense stood their ground. Hartsville ended their scoring with an Owen Taylor touchdown pass to DP Pendergrass making the score 21-3. The Red Foxes defense made three 4th down stops in the fourth quarter to ensure a homecoming victory on Friday Night.
Hartsville will travel next week to take on the undefeated Wilson Tigers at Memorial Stadium on Friday Oct. 18.

Momentum was looking to change sides when J'Shawn Anderson broke an outside run for 78 yards taking the ball to the 10 yard line. The Red Foxes scored two plays later on an Owen Taylor scramble for 12 yards and the touchdown closing the gap to 35-14.
The Red Fox defense was able to get a few more stops highlighted by an interception from Kevon Haigler. Hartsville put one more score in the endzone on a Jaivon Hough reception. Unfortunately, the Red Foxes ran out of time and the final score was 42-21 in favor of the Seahawks.

Red Foxes Partner with Bethlehem Therapeutic Riding Stables
Nathan Barr and Cesare Edwards volunteered on Saturday with Bethlehem Therapeutic Riding Stables at Tally Ho Equestrian Center. Nathan and Cesare are members of the Red Fox basketball team.
Throughout the past year, Red Foxes have volunteered their time to help Special Needs Children complete their physical therapy on horseback. Red Fox student-athletes go on Saturday mornings to help clean trails, escort horses, and provide physical labor for anything that is needed. The children have loved seeing their faces and it has made a major impact in the lives of our athletes. Some of the children are in wheelchairs and are needed to be lifted onto the horses. The horses take the children through trails around the stables which helps them build muscle needed for physical therapy.
"It is a blessing being a part of this wonderful program," claimed Coach Brad Boob. "Our athletes have learned so much in strength and perseverance since joining this amazing organization."
