Ashley Ridge vs. Colleton County: Friday Night Rivals Game of the Week
Our Friday Night Rivals Game of the Week features a matchup between teams eager to make a statement. WATCH LIVE at 7:30 p.m.
Colleton County is 0-2 after losses to Fort Dorchester and West Ashley. With new coach Coby Peeler and coming off a 1-win 2016 season, The Cougars need a notch in the victory column as seeds need water to grow.
The Swamp Foxes of Ashley Ridge will host the Cougars tonight and will be looking to build upon a strong showing against Cane Bay that was followed by a loss to Boiling Springs. High school sports megasite MaxPreps.com ranks Ashley Ridge 45th among all high school football teams in South Carolina. Our Lowcountry top 10 has Ashley Ridge 2nd-ranked as they head into the Week 2 game of the week.
Another big game we will provide highlights from is tonight’s matchup between the Green Wave of Summerville and the Stags of Berkeley.
Summerville is coming off a bye week after a hard-fought back-and-forth win over Spartanburg in the Week 0 season opener. Several players are suspended for tonight’s game after scuffles between the two teams in that showdown at John MCkissick Field. Berkeley is 1-1 after a routing of Stratford last week and a Week 0 loss to Upstate foe Daniel.
Summerville is our 3rd-ranked team in the Lowcountry per our Week 2 standings. Our readers’/viewers’ choice poll this week (view below) currently ranks the Green Wave 7th of 10. We ranked Berkeley 7th after two weeks of play, but our readers and viewers have ranked the team 3rd among the current top 10 teams in the Lowcountry.
