Abbeville, ranked #2 in South Carolina Class AA, is a very strong team, and is certainly capable of scoring four touchdowns on our Devils. History shows that would be a noteworthy happening, since Lincoln County has given up 28 or more points only 5 times in the last 7 years, and 2 of those times were in the state playoffs.

The Greenwood newspaper had an excellent preview of the game Thursday, including more over-the-top compliments from the Abbeville coach toward our Devils.

The Chronicle's Sports Writers' Roundtable is once again stirring up Lincoln County fans. This week's edition started with Billy Byler being kidded about being the most popular podscaster in Lincoln County. (Mr. Byler picked Hephzibah over our Devils last week, and we know how that turned out!) Will he pick Abbeville this week? Maybe we should want him to, knowing his record in LC games. Guess what? No pick in the video, but Byler picked Lincoln County to win in Beat the Pros! But now Chris Gay picked Abbeville to win. Mr. Gay's email, should there be reason to email him Saturday morning.

Lincoln County fans are urged to turn out in force and get to Abbeville early for a great seat. This should be a classic matchup between two great teams. Don't miss it!!
