Panthers use last-minute rally for first win over SF

The Carolina Forest High football team worked some last-minute magic to defeat Region 6-5A rival South Florence 20-10 for the first time in school history at Florence Memorial Stadium.

Trailing 10-7 in the final minute, the Panthers (5-2 overall, 2-0 region) dug deep in their bag of tricks to jump-start a struggling offense,  quarterback Matt Beale tossed a backward pass to Jackson Weatherwax, who connected with fellow receiver Derek Alston to set up first-and-goal in the waning seconds. Beale hooked up with Alston from 4 yards out with 23 seconds remaining to put the Panthers on top 14-10.

The Bruins (1-6, 0-2) attempted to mount a late drive of their own but Carolina Forest’s RJ Richardson picked off a pass and rumbled 45 yards untouched to paydirt to put the finishing touches on the key region victory.

Carolina Forest travels to Sumter next Friday looking to stay unbeaten in region play.
