Hilton Head High’s offense came up short against a stellar Jenkins front on Saturday night, suffering a 28-6 defeat to the Warriors in Savannah.
The Georgia squad pounced early in the first quarter, finding the end zone six minutes in to grab a 7-0 lead. Jenkins made the final seconds of the first half count, scoring a touchdown with just 56 ticks remaining to double the margin. The Warrior defense continued to stymie the Seahawks in the second half after quarterback Jackson Bibee left with a knee injury, and the offense added another touchdown in the fourth to go up 21.
Notre Dame defensive commit Jaylen Sneed ignited the Seahawk offense late, finding senior Evan Elliott for a 40-yard touchdown and putting the visitors on the board. But Jenkins promptly shut the door, punching in the Warriors’ fourth touchdown of the game to seal the 28-6 win.
Hilton Head (1-2) continues its season-opening road swing Friday at unbeaten Wade Hampton.
