Timberland (10-1) at Loris (9-1)

LAST YEAR: Did not play

COACHES: Art Craig, Timberland; Jamie Snider, Loris

NOTABLE: Loris enters this Division I-AA showdown with four shutouts and has allowed only 110 points this season, with 57 of those points coming in a loss to Dillon. Timberland, meanwhile, has recorded five shutouts and allowed only 64 points in 11 games. Both teams prefer to run the ball between the tackles, and this could be a game that is completed in less than two hours. Timberland defeated Kingstree, 49-0, in the first round of the playoffs, while Loris received an opening-round bye.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Timberland DB Lee Mayes and DL James Middleton. Both will play in the North-South All-Star football game.

Lancaster (6-5) at Goose Creek (10-1)

LAST YEAR: Did not play

COACHES: Bennie McMurray, Lancaster; Chuck Reedy, Goose Creek

NOTABLE: Goose Creek enters as the No. 1 seed in Division II-AAAA, and for good reason. The Gators are averaging an eye-opening 54.3 points per game, while the defense is allowing only 12.6 points per contest. Goose Creek's running game grabs the headlines, but quarterback Jaquan Marsh could be the X-factor in the playoffs. The senior has completed 71 percent of his passes for 876 yards and seven touchdowns.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Goose Creek sophomore running back Caleb Kinlaw. He's already rushed for 1,584 yards in his career and averages 9.8 yards per carry.

DID YOU KNOW: Goose Creek topped Lancaster 48-0 in the first round of the 2009 playoffs.

Linebacker Cameron Swails leads the Bishops with 105 tackles, nine for a loss. Bishop England QB Danny Croghan will play in the North-South game. He has completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,231 yards and 17 TDs.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Bishop England DB/RB/WR Andrew Bunch. He's scored 40 touchdowns in his three-year stint on the varsity.
