Colusardo finished with three touchdown passes in addition to the rushing touchdown late in the fourth. Senior Running Back Dante Smith had a strong night as he rushed for three scores. KeSean Glover had a terrific all around game for the Jackets.
In Fort Mill, the Spartanburg Vikings fell in their season opener to the Nation Ford Falcons, 20-6. Running Back Nathan Mahaffey was the vocal point of the Falcon offense and kept getting crucial first down after crucial first down as the game went on. Henry Bishop scored all six of the Vikings points on a pair of field goals from 32 and 39 yards out.
The Byrnes Rebels hit the road and took care of the Greer Yellow Jackets, 33-8.

The Blue Ridge Tigers were impressive in their season opener as they beat the Landrum Cardinals, 35-14. Cooper Gentry had a couple of long touchdown passes for Jason Farmer’s team, who saw a good Blue Ridge offense score four of their five touchdowns in the second half.

A low scoring, grind it out game happened between the Broome Centurions and Central as Lynn Fleming’s team was able to squeak out a 20-14 road victory.
