Pelion notes: The Panthers fell to 1-1 in the wake of a 33-7 loss last week to neighboring Gilbert … Jamar Pontoon is Pelion’s rushing leader to date with 134 yards rushing and one touchdown on 23 carries. Nick Gerity has two short TD runs … New quarterback Wesley Camp is 9-for-14 passing for 141 yards and one score. Patrick Leonhardt has two catches for 66 yards and one TD … Gerity and Donald Martin are the hit leaders on defense with 11 tackles apiece. Gerity has three TFL. Leonhardt has eight tackles, one interception and one pass break up.
Wagener-Salley notes: The War Eagles, who are 8-35 since 2005, expected to show improvement on defense this season, but the results have not been there. W-S has allowed 78 points already in losses to McCormick and Whitmire … The offense has found the end zone just one time so far … Lineman Gunter Fogle is getting some college interest from the likes of Coastal Carolina.
Series history: W-S has a 14-10 overall lead in the series, but the Panthers have been dominant of late. The War Eagles won 13 of the first 14 meetings when the team were region rivals in Class 1A. Pelion, however, has won seven in a row, 10 of the last 11 since moving up the 2A in 1996.
