Bryan County High School held Senior Night on Friday against visiting Savannah Christian. It was the last regular season game of the year for the Redskins, who were still looking for their first win in 2010.
Read more about that game Wednesday.
Last week, the Claxton Tigers (4-4, 2-2) rolled into Pembroke for a region football clash with BCHS and the visiting Tigers took care of business and went home a 39-7 winner.
Bryan County won the toss but elected to defer and the Claxton offense wasted no time. The Tigers scored on a 11-yard touchdown run with just under three minutes gone in the first quarter to finish off a 69-yard drive. Bryan County fumbled on the very first play of their first possession and turned the ball back over to Claxtons' offense and three plays later the Tigers were back on the scoreboard when Claxton quarterback, Michael Peel hit running back Trey Hines on a 21-yard touchdown pass. One extra-point failed and the score was 13-0.
 Bryan County settled down some and made a few first downs in the remaining half, but Claxton scored two more times in the second quarter and converted one extra-point and went in at halftime leading 27-0. Bryan County failed to take advantage of a 60-yard run by Lawerence Eredosima that had them knocking on the scoring door at the 5-yard line right before halftime. Claxton got the ball to start the second half with good field position at the Bryan County 38 and put six more points on the board on a 7-yard run. The extra-point failed, but Claxton was up 33-0. Bryan Countys' lone score came when Eredosima fought his way up the middle for a 15-yard touchdown run that was set up by an interception at the Claxton 15 with 2:02 left in the third quarter. Ty Wilson added the extra-point.
Bryan County coach Mark Wilson has been saying all season that this year is a work in progress.
“We’ve got a lot of young kids starting. A year of good weight room work and experience will make a difference. That's what you've got to do to build a program.”
