The first Friday in October brought plenty of highlights for local teams, including Battery Creek’s first win of the season and May River’s second straight shutout, but Lowco squads were just 3-8 this week, including the first losses of 2019 for Whale Branch and Thomas Heyward.
Nonetheless, there were plenty of standout performances — both in winning and losing efforts — and they are represented in this week’s RBC Heritage Player of the Week nominees.
