Christ Church wins 3rd straight state crown

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Demetrius Anthony ran for two touchdowns and threw for another and Christ Church defeated Carvers Bay 28-21 Friday to win its third straight South Carolina Class A Division I championship and 40th consecutive game.

Christ Church (14-0) moved a victory away from the longest winning streak in state prep football history: Summerville won 41 games in a row from 1978 through 1980.

Anthony rushed for 90 yards and scored on runs of 5 and 11 yards, the second one that put the Cavaliers up 28-21 less than a minute left in the opening half. He also passed for 175 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown to Rudy Johnstone.

Devin Cuttino had touchdown runs of 30 and 80 yards for Carvers Bay (12-2), which gained 289 yards rushing.
