Beau Shugarts – Greenbrier

Thomson (5-2, 2-1) at Burke County (2-2, 2-1)

Class 3A, Region 4

Thomson stands one game behind Burke County and Richmond (6-1, 3-0) in the region standings. In my opinion, this is usually the area’s most exciting game. And there is no better place for football than the Bear Den in Waynesboro. I will be there to post highlights, updates and interviews to the @AugBball Facebook, Instagram and Twitter timelines.

Daveion Henry – Burke County

#10 Clarke Central (5-2, 4-0) at Greenbrier (5-1, 2-1)

Class 5A, Region 8

An upset win at home would propel the Wolfpack into the region’s top spot. For a good reason, Greenbrier’s passing attack has made headlines all season, with quarterback Brooks Pangle (1342 passing yards, 6 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions), and receivers Brayden Collett (450 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns) and Malik Leverett (337 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns) relentlessly lighting up scoreboards.

But just as eye popping have been the statistics posted on the defensive side by 6-3, 255 pound senior linemen Beau Shugarts, who has logged 75 total tackles (51 solo) and 20 tackles for a loss!

4th Take Films’s Seth Wesley will be on the Greenbrier sidelines to post highlights, updates and interviews to the @AugBball Facebook, Instagram and Twitter timelines.

Malik Leverett – Greenbrier

#4 Blackville-Hilda (5-0, 5-0) at Williston-Elko (3-2, 3-1)

(SC) Class 1A, Region 3

The Fighting Hawks will have to earn a win on the road to extend their unbeaten streak and secure a region championship. A win for Williston-Elko would throw the region standings into chaos as #4 Blackville-Hilda, #9 Wagener-Salley and Williston-Elko would all be tied for first place with 1 loss each. And remember, only two teams from each region get an automatic playoff spot in South Carolina this season.

Adonis Davis – Blackville-Hilda

Morgan County (3-3, 1-1) at Richmond (6-1, 3-0)

Class 3A, Region 4

Between this game and the game in Waynesboro, region 4’s top four teams will jockey for positioning in the top half of this 7 team league’s standings. Four teams from the league will make the playoffs, but only two will start the post season with a home game.

Richmond’s rushing attack was dominant in last week’s 33-26 win over Hephzibah. The distinguished Musketeer offensive line paved the way for 388 yards on the ground, including 230 for Jontavious Curry and 114 for Rashad Williams.

Jackson Murphy and Rashad Williams (Richmond)

#5 Aquinas (7-0, 0-0) at Savannah Country Day (2-3, 0-0)

Class 1A Private, Region 3

Aquinas will finally open region play Friday. Since the last time we checked in on the Fighting Irish, the offense has continued to pound it on the ground to the tune of 328 yards and 5 touchdowns per game rushing! If the guys handle business on the road tomorrow, all eyes will turn to the following week’s matchup at home against #8 Savannah Christian (6-1).

Lee Perry (70) – Aquinas

Evans (4-2, 1-0) at Lakeside (1-5, 0-1)

Class 6A, Region 3

The Knights will try to take the next step on the road to repeating as the region champion when they face arch rival Lakeside, which has struggled so far. But tear up the records when these two teams meet!

Kaleb Jackson (10) and Lleyton Lackey (1) – Evans


Westside (4-3, 3-1) at Laney (3-3, 3-1) – Saturday at 2:00 P.M.

Class 2A, Region 4

Both the Wildcats and the Patriots stand one game behind region leaders Putnam County and Jefferson County in this eight team league. It will be a homecoming game for Laney and I will be there to post highlights, updates and interviews to the @AugBball Facebook, Instagram and Twitter timelines.

Marcellus Brigham – Laney

Pelion (2-0, 2-0) at Silver Bluff (2-2, 1-2)

Class 2A, Region 5

Freshman running back Traevon Dunbar has quietly had one of the best seasons of any area player. Dunbar rushed for 6 touchdowns last week in Silver Bluff’s 52-24 win over Williston-Elko. 4th Take Films’s Dangelo Bridges will be on the Silver Bluff sidelines to post highlights, updates and interviews to the @AugBball Facebook, Instagram and Twitter timelines.

“Sophomore Malik Ferguson picked up a loose ball in the middle of the paint with one second remaining, and right before the fourth quarter buzzer sounded, he released a shot that found its mark to give Grovetown 61-60 win over Evans Friday, a result that threw the top spot in the class 6A, region 5 standings into a three way tie between Grovetown, Evans and Heritage to mark the beginning of the stretch run for the league’s regular season championship. Ferguson’s shot came at the end of a full court dash by Grovetown after head coach Darren Douglas was able to draw up a play during a timeout that was meant to result in a bucket in only six seconds. The play was designed for senior Zach Bell, who eventually fumbled the ball after spinning between defenders at the end of a drive that began near half court after he gathered the ball from freshman Derrion Reid.”

That was Chad Cook’s rundown of the instant classic that these two teams played two weeks ago. That win by Grovetown sets up a must-win scenario for Evans as they look to maintain their footing in the race for a region championship.

Be sure to get your ? ready early because if tonight’s game is as exciting as the last one, you just might forget those jokers altogether!

Streams will be posted here. Tip-off times are as follows:
Girls – 6:30 PM
Boys – 8:00 PM
