With a strong running game, anchored by Ivan Wiggins, and an opportunistic defense that scored two touchdowns, the Military Magnet Eagles whipped Stall, 38-21, on Thursday night.

Wiggins, a 5-3, 140-pound sparkplug, rushed for more than 100 yards as the Eagles rolled up more than 250 yards on the ground to improve to 3-2 on the season. The Eagles also returned two interceptions for touchdowns and forced six turnovers.

"This is a good building block win for us, and I thought our guys played very hard all night," said Military Magnet head coach Gene Ross. "I am really proud of our kids. They played their tails off tonight and made a lot of good things happen."

By Phil Bowman

GOOSE CREEK {}Fort Dorchester controlled the ball. Goose Creek scored the points.

Fort Dorchester had the ball for nearly 12 of the game's first 17 minutes, but Goose Creek led where it counted on the scoreboard. The Gators cashed in on three big plays and took a 21-7 lead on their way to a 49-28 victory Friday night in front of about 5,000 fans at Fulmer Field.

By the time the stat man had it all figured out, the Gators gained 552 yards in total offense to Fort Dorchester's 390. Five of the Gators' touchdowns accounted for 273 yards. Fort Dorchester had the ball for nearly 29 minutes to Goose Creek's 19 minutes.

Summerville 36-10 Wando

By Andrew Miller

MOUNT PLEASANT {}Summerville coach John McKissick was cautiously optimistic about the Green Wave's chances of making a deep run in the Class AAAA playoffs this season.

After all, the Green Wave featured two of the top skill players in the state in running back Davon Anderson and cornerback Darin Smalls.

But Anderson moved to Cleveland in August and Smalls suffered a season-ending knee injury last week against Goose Creek, leaving the Green Wave searching for an offensive identity.

After the Green Wave's 36-10 victory over Wando Friday night, McKissick still has more questions than answers on the offensive side of the ball.

Stratford 42-27 Ashley Ridge

GOOSE CREEKJacob Park remained on target and Stratford remained undefeated.

The Knights topped the Ashley Ridge Swamp Foxes, 42-27, Friday night as Park, one of the top quarterbacks in the country, passed for 346 yards and three touchdowns. He now has 1,255 yards on the season as the Knights upped their record to 4-0. Ashley Ridge fell to 0-4.

Stratford jumped to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Jordan Johnson scored the first of his two touchdowns on a 6-yard run. That's when Park began his air show. He threw an 88-yard TD pass to Thad Thompson and added a 17-yard strike to Tyree Scroggins to push the lead to 21-7.

Park and Thompson hooked up on an 80-yard score and Park then connected with Scroggins again for a 64-yard score.
