Region 6-4A: Braves lose to SF; Tigers, Panthers fall

socfoot-10end run (2)Socastee’s triple-option attack couldn’t keep pace with the strong arm of South Florence quarterback Nick Jones as the No. 2 Bruins held off the Braves 27-20 on Friday night at The Reservation.

Jones threw three touchdown passes and helped the Bruins build a 27-13 lead in the third quarter before Socastee’s defense finally held him in check. The Braves (7-3 overall, 2-2 Region 6-4A) managed to cut the deficit in half on quarterback Jordan Hodge’s second touchdown run of the night with 4 minutes left to make it interesting.

Facing fourth down and the possibility of giving the ball back to the Braves, South Florence (9-1, 4-0) pulled of a nice fake punt with 2 minutes remaining to pick up the first down and run out the clock. The victory allowed the Bruins to clinch the No. 1 seed in the region, while Socastee faces a big game at Sumter with playoff implications.

Both offenses came out swiminging, albeit at their own paces. Jones capped the Bruins’ first series with a TD pass, and the Braves answered with a 2-yard TD run by Angelo Sauter. South Florence’s Rodney Brunson scored on a 3-yard TD run, then Hodge ran in his first TD of the night to make it 13-all in the second quarter. Jones threw a TD for a 20-13 halftime lead, and threw another in the third period to amass a 27-13 edge.

* Sumter 40, Conway 21: The Tigers (2-8, 1-3) saw their playoff chances come to a halt with a tough loss to the Gamecocks.

Conway once again jumped out to an early lead only to see it slip away. Jah’ Maine Martin scored on a 1-yard TD dive for a quick 7-0 lead, but Sumter opened the floodgates the rest of the way, building a 24-7 halftime lead.

The Tigers cut the deficit to 34-21 in the fourth quarter but Sumter used some late field goals to hold off the rally. Conway faces rival Carolina Forest next week.

* West Florence 31, Carolina Forest 7: The Panthers (2-8, 0-4) officially dropped out of playoff contention with a loss to the Knights, who shut down Carolina Forest’s high-scoring attack for the win.

The Panthers jumped out to a 7-0 lead on Dyverse Simmons’ 3-yard TD run but the offense was shut out the rest of the way. West Florence quarterback Marquane Goodman, back from an early season injury, showed he is in playoff form with a pair of TD runs and a TD pass en route to a 24-7 halftime lead.
