West Ashley (1-3) answered when Maquel Capers returned a fumble 37-yards for a TD to tie the game at 7-7. Then, Nelson Huggins capped on a long-scoring drive with a 17-yard field goal to give the Wildcats a 10-7 lead late in the second quarter.

After a Wando (2-1) safety that cut the gap to 10-9, the Warriors took the lead for good on Pritchard’s second TD pass, this one to Dillon McCarthy, in the third quarter. Pritchard added an 8-yard TD pass to Glover in the fourth quarter to give the Warriors a 30-10 advantage.
