Aiken High School's Hornets suffered a 42-20 loss at the hands of Lexington High School's Wildcats, the Hornets' longtime region nemesis, Friday evening in Lexington. Lexington improved to 1-0 in Region 5-AAAA play, while the Hornets, in the midst of a three-game losing streak. fell to 0-1 in region play. Lexington dominated early with a defensive stop and quick touchdown on their first drive with a long touchdown pass from quarterback Shaq Roland to Jalen Cook. The Hornets responded shortly after with a long drive which set op a short swing pass from Hornet quarterback Billy Vickers to fullback Marquez Garvin, which tied the game up at 7-all. The lead did not stay for long when Lexington running back Adrian Wigfall took the ball 28 yards for a touchdown. Aiken's scrappy defense came back, thanks to an interception return from C.J. Dunbar, which tied the game at 14. Aiken took the lead on a sneak by Vickers, a spurt that completed a 20-point quarter. It was all Lexington after that, however. Wigfall added a pair of touchdowns as the Wildcats scored 28 unanswered points.
