Friday Football Frenzy: Scores, highlights, and more from Week 5

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- As teams near halftime across the Lowcountry, it's clear that there are a lot of epic games in the making this Friday night.

In Goose Creek, one of the best teams in the state came to town to take on Goose Creek, a team looking to take home another state title after last year's scandal. Midway through the second quarter, Dutch Fork is leading Goose Creek 20-14. In the Thursday night game, Bishop England looked to string together three wins in a row after a shaky 0-2 start. The Post and Courier's David Shelton has that story here.

Berkeley 31-12 Timberland

By Dan Brown

Josh Simmons returned an interception for a touchdown and recovered a fumble to help Berkeley beat Timberland, 31-12, Friday night.

Diamonte Harley added a pair of interceptions for the Stags (2-3), who finished with four picks against the Wolves.

Timberland (3-2) turned the ball over six times in the game and now have 16 turnovers for the season.

"You can't turn the ball over 16 times and expect to win football games," said Timberland coach Art Craig.

The Wolves hit the ground running as Bernard Harmon capped a seven-play, 65-yard drive with a 9-yard run to put Timberland on top, 6-0.

Goose Creek 35-21 Dutch Fork

By Phil Bowman

GOOSE CREEK {}The Goose Creek vs. Dutch Fork showdown lived up to its heavyweight hype.

The No. 3-ranked Gators and No. 4 Silver Foxes traded big plays on offense, came up with stops when needed on defense, and made the crowd of more than 7,500 at Fulmer Field hold its collective breath too many times.

There were mistakes, most notably two costly fumbles by Goose Creek, and missed PAT attempts. But the Gators rallied in the third quarter and came away with a 35-21 victory.

"It was a big win for us," Goose Creek coach Chuck Reedy said. "We had a chance for two more touchdowns in the first half, but turned the ball over. But I felt we were beginning to wear them down late in the second quarter."

The Gators won their 31st straight game on the field to go 5-0 on the season. The Gators have another tough challenge next week with a trip to Beaufort. Dutch Fork lost to the Gators for the second straight year and dropped to 4-1 on the season.

Fort Dorchester 41-13 Wando

By Andrew Miller

Fort Dorchester defensive tackle Eurndraus Bryant has never heard of former Clemson and Chicago Bears defensive tackle William "The Refrigerator" Perry.

But the 6-2, 335-pound Bryant did a pretty good imitation of "The Fridge" on Friday night against Wando.

Perry became famous for scoring touchdowns for the Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears during their 1985 season.

Like Perry, Bryant is making a name for himself in short-yardage situations for the Patriots.

Bryant rushed for 32 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead Fort Dorchester past Wando, 41-13, Friday night at Bagwell Stadium.

The Patriots improved to 3-2 on the season, while the Warriors, who lost for the third straight time, fell to 2-4.
