Week 9 is in the books for High School Football in the Upstate.

The Spartanburg Vikings were able to start fast at Riverside and never looked back, as the Vikings prevailed 62-7. Six different Spartanburg players found the endzone in the first half, including Jaden Simmons, who returned a block punt for a score. Spartanburg will close out the regular season at home next Friday against Gaffney.
After a bye week, the Chapman Panthers weren’t to rusty offensively as they were able to beat Southside, 69-20. Quarterback Mikele Colasurdo went 12-15 passing for 181 yards and three touchdowns while he carried the ball six times for 61 yards.
The Union County Yellow Jackets were victorious in their homecoming game as they were able to hold off Newberry, 28-21.

The Woodruff Wolverines got a scare from Mid Carolina on the road as Woodruff was able to escape with a 28-24 win.
