STAR OF THE GAME: Reece. After passing for 19 touchdowns in 2012, Reece picked apart T.L. Hanna’s secondary for 300 yards and four scores.
WHY NORTH AUGUSTA WON: It scored 21 second-quarter points, with all three touchdowns coming through the air. Reece connected with Dre Dunbar, Antaun Andrews and Jaleel Bryant.
WHY T.L. HANNA LOST: North Augusta’s defense forced three turnovers in the opening half.
QUOTABLE: “Getting this first win definitely means a lot,” Reece said. “We’re trying to make a statement to the rest of South Carolina, and I felt like we did that tonight. Personally, I gotta give all the credit to my offensive line and receivers for making everything happen.”
