Week 13 of H.S. Football Season; Goose Creek advances with win



Goose Creek 35, Bluffton 25 - The Gators (13-0) built a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter on the Bobcats (11-2), then held on to advance to the AAAA Division 2 semifinals.  Rico Blanding ran for three touchdowns for Goose Creek, which now has to go back to Columbia for another hearing with the SCHSL executive committee on Monday, to determine if they can continue their season.

It has been a wild few days for the Gators after they were disqualified from the playoffs for using an ineligible player earlier in the week. Goose Creek did receive help from a Berkeley County judge on Friday, allowing the Gators to play. 

Gaffney 28, Stratford 12 - The Knights' (10-3) season ends in the AAAA Division 1 quarterfinals.
