For the second straight week, Beaufort Academy used a strong ground game and a stingy defense to clamp down on a hard-fought victory, winning 28-12 at Colleton Prep on Friday.
Ja’Sean Lawson rushed for 151 yards and three TDs, and Braydon Dineen added a touchdown run for the Eagles, whose defense helped preserve the lead with two fourth-down stops and two goal-line stands.
The Eagles jumped out to a 7-0 lead and led 7-6 at halftime before getting the ground game rolling in the second half. They extended the advantage to 20-6, then held off a rally from the War Hawks before punching in another score to clinch the win.
