POWDERSVILLE — The Powdersville Patriots were all smiles on Friday as they beat their school rivals Wren for the second time in as many years.

Powdersville (1-1) was coming off a tough 2017 season opening 42-21 loss to Belton-Honea Path and fans were eager to see the season get on the right track for another state championship run.

They got their wish on Friday with a 38-24 win.

The first quarter started off strong with the Pats and ‘Canes trading off touchdowns for field goals and in the second, both teams managed two trips a piece to the end zone.

Following halftime, the scales began to tip in Powdersville’s favor: Two unanswered TDs in the third gave the Patriots a solid lead going into the last quarter of the game. Another field goal sealed the deal despite Wren managing one more trip for 7.

Wren (1-1) will return home to take on Easley (2-1) on Sept. 8 — always a crowd favorite, especially with the Green Wave fresh off a big loss to BHP. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m.

Powdersville will be heading on over to Seneca on Friday to take on the 2-1 Bobcats who are coming off a big 13-0 shut-out win at Daniel last week.

Speaking of Daniel (1-2), after two disappointing losses in a row, the Lions are hoping to get their season back on track by hosting 2-1 Greer on Sept. 8.

All area games are scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m.
