Dutch Fork notes: The Silver Foxes (1-5, 0-2) are coming off a 30-15 Region 5-4A loss to Orangeburg-Wilkinson. The 1-5 mark is the worst in school history to this point in a season … The Foxes took a 15-12 lead in the third quarter on a 39-yard scoring pass from Justin Suber to Tavarris Counts, but that was it for the DF scoring. Two of the final three O-W touchdowns came directly as a result of DF fumbles – one was recovered in the end zone, the other was cashed in on a short return … The Foxes offense managed only 55 yards rushing and 80 passing against the Bruins.
White Knoll notes: Talk about mirror images. White Knoll has the same record as Dutch Fork (1-5- 0-2), is also stuck in a four-game losing streak and has been having offensive problems all season with an inexperienced cast … The Timberwolves hope homecoming is a spark that ignites a turnaround … WK played high-riding North Augusta tough in the first half last week and trailed 7-0 at halftime. But a fumble on the opening kickoff after the break set up a short field for North Augusta. The Jackets cashed in and the floodgates opened. NA tallied 21 points in the third quarter on the way to a 35-7 win … The Alpha players of the game for White Knoll were Joe Clyburn (defense), Eric Huffman (special teams) and Wesley Walker (offense).
Series history: White Knoll’s 20-0 win last season was the first Timberwolves success in six tries vs. the Silver Foxes. Friday’s game marks the first meeting of the teams as region foes.
