In 96.3 WGOG’s High School Football Game of the Week on Friday, the 4th-ranked Belton-Honea Path Bears shut-out the Walhalla Razorbacks 58-0 in Western AAA play. The Bears proved again why they are one of the best teams in the Palmetto State. BHP’s signal-caller, Matt Williams, was our Player of the Game. Williams played until early in the third quarter, finishing the night 10-for-14 with 339 yards and three touchdowns through the air. Keinan Lewis, the Bears top receiver, finished with 4 catches for 106 yards and two scores. The other passing score went from Williams to Kijafa Martin. On the ground, Korey Thompson carried 12 times for 74 yards and a score. The Bears also saw rushing touchdowns from TC McCullough and Will Boggs. BHP collected 484 yards of total offense to Walhalla’s 40 yards.
Elsewhere, Emerald spoiled Homecoming at West-Oak, defeating the Warriors 72-7. Seneca was back and forth with Wren at Bobcat Stadium, scoring a touchdown with 8.2 seconds remaining, to cut the Hurricane lead to one point. The Bobcats attempted and failed on a 2-point conversion to give Wren the 28-27 win.
WGOG will travel to Powdersville for our Game of the Week next Friday for a Western AAA showdown between Wren and Daniel. Airtime is 7:00 PM with the pre-game show, kick-off at 7:30 PM.
