Class 3A

First round results: Eastside 6, Belton-Honea Path 0; A.C. Flora 5, Chapman 0; Wren 2, Pickens 1; River Bluff 6, Broome 1; Chapin 16, Chester 0; Greenville 8, Walhalla 1; Woodruff 4, Dreher 3; Seneca 1, Blue Ridge 0; Myrtle Beach 4, Berkeley 0; Airport 12, Lakewood 0, Hilton Head 6, Socastee 0; Brookland-Cayce 11, Crestwood 0; Hartsville 3, Gilbert 2; St. James 7, Hanahan 0; Swansea 2, Darlington 0; James Island 2, North Myrtle Beach 0.
