  • Along Twin Ponds Road

    How many sporting events have you attended when you didn’t know which team to root for?
    The Wofford/
    Western Carolina football game my wife and I attended recently was a good one.
    Western Carolina came out winners, 24 to 17, with Wofford threatening to score when time ran out.
    It was the whole college football game experience I enjoyed, which included watching the game, fine weather and loudly cheering fans.

    The Jaguars started the second quarter with consecutive first downs, and at the end of that possession were able to score a touch down via a 40-yard carry from RB Stephon Simpkins.
