Site: W.C. Hawkins Stadium. Time: 7 p.m.
Fort Dorchester notes: The Patriots let a 21-7 lead slip away last week in a 28-21 loss to Greenville last week. The visiting Raiders erupted for 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter … Michael Sellers ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns on 16 totes, and freshman quarterback Davron Glenn had 74 yards passing and 28 rushing.
Irmo notes: The Yellow Jackets also let a win slip away in the fourth quarter last week. Irmo took a 7-6 lead with 7:01 left on 1-yard scoring run by Mustafa Greene, but Ridge View responded with a drive that hit pay dirt with 2:43 remaining … Greene finished with 108 yards rushing, but the passing game managed just 57 yards.
Series history: Fort Dorchester has beaten the Yellow Jackets in the two previous meetings of the teams, but Thursday’s game marks the first regular season clash. The Fort eliminated Irmo in the first round of the Big 16 playoffs in 2001 and in the quarterfinals in 2003.
