NORTH AUGUSTA 42, SOUTH AIKEN 6

PLAY OF THE GAME: Following a failed fake punt by South Aiken, North Augusta running back Ronald Williams extended the Yellow Jackets’ lead to 21-0 when he scored on an 11-yard touchdown run with 3:57 left in the half.

STAR OF THE GAME: North Augusta junior quarterback Trib Reece threw for 142 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, Reece has thrown 25 touchdowns.

WHY NORTH AUGUSTA WON: The Yellow Jackets entered Friday’s contest averaging 40.13 points per game and showed no signs of slowing down against their Region 5-AAAA foe. North Augusta’s offense accounted for 355 total yards and 18 first downs.

WHY SOUTH AIKEN LOST: It struggled to contain North Augusta’s offense, which scored on four of its six possessions in the first half.

QUOTABLE: “We played so poorly our last home game, and I coached so poorly, so it felt great to bounce back like this against a quality opponent,” North Augusta coach Dan Pippin said. “Overall, I thought we did a great job of controlling the line of scrimmage, especially on the defensive side of the ball.”

NEXT: North Augusta (8-1, 201) at Aiken, Friday; White Knoll at South Aiken (1-8, 0-3), Friday.
