Local Notes:

SCHSL Football Playoff Continue Tonight… The SCHSL Football playoffs continue tonight and if you click here it will take you to a posting I have in the Featured Sports Section on our homepage at wlbg.com where you can click on a link to each of the five different classes and see last weekend’s results and the entire bracket for each of the classes of SCHSL football… Taking a look at some of the key matchups in the upstate of South Carolina you find

  • Class 5A… TL Hanna which is 7-0 on the season is Gaffney to take on the 6-0 Indians… The 5-1 Dorman Cavaliers are on the road to Northwestern taking on the 6-0 Trojans.
  • Class 4A… In Class-AAAA both of Laurens region opponents were eliminated last week when Greenwood lost to South Pointe 34-32 in double overtime and Greer lost to Catawba Ride 34-20… Catawba Ridge (6-1) now travels to Irmo (7-2) while South Pointe (6-2) host A.C. Flora (8-0)
  • Class 3A… In Class AAA both of Clinton’s region opponents are still alive… Woodruff (6-2) defeated Palmetto 34-12 and now travels to Wren (7-1) to take on the Golden Hurricanes… Chapman took a 38-0 win over Powdersville and is now 7-0 on the season and will host the Daniel Lions who are also 7-0… That should be some ballgame.
  • Class 2A… In Class-AA the Abbeville Panther (8-0) will host the 7-1 Chesnee Eagles… The Panthers will probably tell you after tonight that eagles taste like chicken and be subject to prosecution for killing nationally protected birds… The other game has Christ Church (7-2) traveling down to Gray Collegiate to take on the 7-0 War Eagles.
  • Class A… One local team was eliminated from the Class A playoffs last week as Whitmire fell to Blackville-Hilda 31-0 and Blackville Hilda (8-0) will come up to the Greenville area to take on the Sabers who are 7-0… The other upstate game pits Lamar against Wagner-Salley (7-1) at Lamar (7-2).


PC Note

  • Lady Blue Hose Basketball Opener Postponed… Yesterday I mention that the Lady Blue Hose basketball season opener would be next Wednesday (11-25-20) at Kennesaw State taking on the Owls… Well as sports fans everywhere know all sports schedules are subject to last minute change due to the COVID 19 virus… Well that virus has caused the opener for the Lady Blue Hose to be postponed as Kennesaw State has suspended all basketball activities due multiple positive COVID test among program members… No makeup date has been set… The Lady Blue Hose will now open their season on Friday, Nov. 27th provided the COVID virus does not rear its ugly head between now and then.
