For the second straight week, the South Hagerstown defense played well enough to beat a Frederick County opponent.
And for the second straight week, the Rebels' offense played poorly enough to lose.
South was held to just 68 yards of total offense and turned the ball over four times to spoil an efficient showing by its defense as the Rebels were blanked by Tuscarora 13-0 at School Stadium on Friday night.
"The defense played well. That's two weeks in a row the defense played well enough to win," said Rebels coach Greg Kellick. "But offensively we haven't done a thing."
The pattern was the same as last week's loss to Walkersville.
South (0-2) had four three-and-outs in its first five series. The Rebels managed to move the chains only twice before halftime - both on a 10-play drive to start the second quarter - but were still forced to punt.
