The latest from Week 8 of high school football in the Upstate.
The Belton Honea Path Bears shut out the Daniel Lions 14-0 for the Friday Night Blitz Game of the Week. The Bears won by one point when the teams met in 2015, so Friday night’s Region 1 AAAA game was expected to be a nail-biter.
Some of the Week 8 action started on Thursday night.
Here is a recap of Thursday’s games.
The Mauldin Mavericks plowed over Wade Hampton 56 -7 in the Region 2 5-A battle at Mauldin High School.
Union County crushed Blue Ridge on the Road. The Yellow Jackets won 46-3.
The Laurens Raiders also picked up a big win over Riverside. The Raiders won 35-9 on the Warriors’ home turf.
