WEEK 7 WAS full of upsets and comebacks throughout the state.
The Yellow Jackets are 3-4, but 1-0 in the region. They have as much of a chance at winning it as top 10 Spring Valley. That game will be played Friday and I believe it will produce the eventual region 4A-4 champion.
The team no one is talking about is South Florence. Tthe Bruins run a powerful and balanced offense with a good quarterback complimented by a strong ground game. But this past weekend, the Bruins’ defense stepped up like it hasn’t before in a 28-21 win over Sumter.
This class had the biggest upset when Crestwood knocked off No. 2 Hartsville, 10-7, in Region 6. Marlboro County, Crestwood, and Hartsville each have a loss, and Darlington is unbeaten.
No. 1 Daniel beat No. 3 Belton-Honea Path 10-0. A punishing, physical defense shut down the Bears.
In the Midlands, Brookland-Cayce knocked off Gilbert, 40-27, in region play, moving into position for a potential second-place finish.. If it fails to get that spot, Brookland-Cayce will be on the road in the playoffs.
