Friday Football Frenzy: Scores, highlights, and more from Week 3

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- High school football games across the country are wrapping up, and that means there will be plenty of scores and highlights.

A few pop-up showers only canceled one game, the Trinity Byrnes at Palmetto Christian matchup, meaning PCA's star quarterback J.T. Waters had to step off the field for the night without posting huge numbers.

The big matchups:

Goose Creek 34-17 Summerville

By Phil Bowman

SUMMERVILLE {}Goose Creek coach Chuck Reedy will probably fret about some sloppy tackling and breakdowns on special teams. But when he loads up the video and watches his offense, he'll feel just fine.

Goose Creek had three masterful drives in the first half of Friday night's showdown at Summerville, and that helped the Gators roll to a 34-17 victory in front of about 8,000 fans at Memorial Stadium.

The Gators had scoring drives of 80, 80 and 94 yards in the first 24 minutes, running 44 plays in the first half.

West Ashley 20-10 Ashley Ridge

By Tim Linker

SUMMERVILLE West Ashley quarterback Pedro Manigault rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Wildcats to a 20-10 victory over Ashley Ridge on Friday.

It was West Ashley's first win against Ashley Ridge in four tries. The Wildcats are 3-0. Ashley Ridge fell to 0-3.

The only scoring in the first quarter was a 20-yard field goal by the Swamp Foxes' Matt Gable.

West Ashley jumped ahead in the second quarter when Manigault scored on a 22-yard TD run. Less than a minute later, Wildcat senior linebacker Donte Patterson stepped in front of a Chandler Avenel pass and returned it 42 yards to put West Ashley up 14-3.

Bishop England 33-14 Porter-Gaud

By Kevin O'Rourke

Bishop England forced six turnovers and rode brothers Reed and Lawton Fosberry to a 33-14 victory at Porter-Gaud on Friday night.

Senior Reed Fosberry intercepted two passes in the first half and gave the Battling Bishops the lead for good with a 7-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Sophomore Lawton Fosberry made sure the lead would stand up, returning two fourth-quarter interceptions for scores as Bishop England (1-2) earned its first win of the season

"We definitely capitalized on turnovers which in the last few games has been the reverse," Bishop England coach John Cantey said. "We had given up three scores coming in by fumbling the football but we were able to turn it around tonight. It was a huge confidence builder for our defense."

Bishop England senior running back Nick Shiver ran for 180 yards on 17 carries, and ripped off a 74-yard touchdown run off an option pitch on the second play from scrimmage to stake the Bishops to a 7-0 advantage.

Stratford 26-13 Fort Dorchester

By Andrew Miller

University of Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo made the four-hour drive from Athens to watch Stratford quarterback Jacob Park put on a performance.

He didn't leave disappointed.

Park threw for 323 yards and one touchdown and ran for another score to lead Stratford past Fort Dorchester, 26-13, Friday night before a crowd of more than 4,000 at Bagwell Stadium.

Park, who has verbally committed to the Bulldogs, displayed his full arsenal of passes that has made the 6-4, 210-pound senior one of the top high school quarterbacks in the country.

Park completed 16 of 28 passes, including an 85-yard TD pass in the first half.
