Jackets beat Hornets for fourth year in row
Dan Pippin, once he began coaching in Aiken County, needed a few years to collect a "W" in football action against Aiken High School, but his teams are now doing the job on a regular basis,
North Augusta has now beaten Aiken for four straight years and most recently did the trick at home in a 41-7 Friday clobbering.
It took 56 seconds for the Yellow Jackets (8-2 overall and 4-0 in Region 5-AAAA) to score. Opening the floodgates was Trib Reece, who threw to Dre Dunbar for a 29-yard strike. Trey Morgan added two more scores in the first frame.
Aiken (2-8, 0-4) narrowly avoided a shutout. Gabe Green scored for the visitors on a six-yard run with 15 seconds left in the game.
Pippin's bunch, now assured of home-field status for at least the first round of the playoffs, is now in a prime position to challenge for its second region title in three years. The championship is to be settled Friday on the Jackets' turf, in a winner-take-all contest vs. Dutch Fork.
The Silver Foxes (7-3, 4-0) played Friday at Lexington, dumping the Wildcats by a 55-21 tally. All of their region games have been blowouts, for an average of 51-13 so far.
North Augusta has also mugged all of its region opponents so far, winning by an average score of 40-7.
DeVonte Pressley, the Jackets' leading rusher this season, addressed the outlook against Dutch Fork, saying, "All we know is they're as good as we are, but I think we've got the potential to beat them."
Parker Collins, the Jackets' right tackle, made similar comments. "They're a good team, but we're a good team too. It should be a big game, since it's for the region title ... and we'll be well-prepared for it."
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
