Irmo plays O-W on Saturday

Irmo's Region 5-4AA football opener at Oranburg-Wilkinson scheduled for Friday night has been moved to Saturday at 2 p.m.

Site: Bruins Stadium. Time: 2 p.m.

Irmo notes: The Yellow Jackets (2-2) won their second game in a row last week, but struggled to dispose of winless Spring Valley, 10-7 … Irmo is 29-7 in region matters since 2001.

O-W notes: The Bruins are off to a 4-0 start with Tommy Brown back in command. Brown was let go in 2002 after a 12-year stay, but was brought back after Reggie Kennedy left O-W to return and takes Brown’s place at Fairfield Central … Brown had a 6-1 record vs. Irmo during his first term at O-W … Jason Leverette is the man who makes the Bruins spread attack go. The senior quarterback has 249 yards rushing and has connected on 56 of 93 passes for 834 yards and 10 touchdowns. The cast of receivers features Clayton Girton (19 catches for 252 yards and two TDs), Roy Haynes (11-249-4) and Raheem Howell (11-183-1).

Series history: The odd series resumes after O-W was sent to a region in the Lowcountry in 2004. The teams have split 30 meetings through the years - Irmo winning 11 of the first 15 encounters; the Bruins winning 11 of the last 15.
