Last weekend was a tough one for our local South Carolina football teams. Aiken, North Augusta, Midland Valley, Silver Bluff and Barnwell all saw their playoff dreams come to an end.

The South Carolina football playoffs continue this week with the opening week for Class AAAA and the second week for Class AAA and lower.
There weren't too many surprises from the local teams last week, save for South Aiken's huge upset of Hilton Head.

Richland Northeast at Aiken, 8 p.m.: The Hornets lost to the Cavaliers midway through the season, one of two losses for Aiken this year. But based on recent form, I don't see Aiken losing this one. Aiken 24, RNE 14
