Round up of area high school football games
RS-M 46, McCORMICK 12
McCORMICK — Travious Wigfall accounted for 223 total yards of offense –more than the entire McCormick High School offense could muster– and scored two touchdowns, and brought down an interception on defense as the Trojans of Ridge Spring-Monetta High School routed the Chiefs 46-12 on Friday night on the road. The lopsided win improves the Trojans to 3-1 for the season and avenged a 33-14 loss at home last season at the hands of the Chiefs, who fall to 0-3.
NORTH AUGUSTA 56, GROVETOWN 13
NORTH AUGUSTA — A sluggish start by North Augusta High School standards saw the home-standing Yellow Jackets end the first quarter tied with Grovetown, 7-7. North Augusta got back on track in the second and never looked back, blowing out the visiting Warriors, 56-13, on Friday night.
MIDLAND VALLEY 42, AIKEN 35
GRANITEVILLE — Next year, Midland Valley and Aiken High will be rivals in Region 5-AAA after the Hornets move down a class following realignment. For now though, they remain area foes who are regulars on the early-season football schedule.
STROM THURMOND 35, BATESBURG-LEESVILLE 28
JOHNSTON — The game was filled with several big offensive plays, but, in the end it came down to two defensive plays by Strom Thurmond.
SILVER BLUFF 36, SOUTH AIKEN 20
PETTICOAT JUNCTION — Less than six minutes into Silver Bluff’s 36-20 win over in-county foe South Aiken, RJ Stallings already had a “football hat trick” of sorts for the Bulldogs.
Scores from Williston-Elko, Denmark-Olar and Wagener-Salley, Whitmire game.
