Keep up with the Lowco squads in the second round of the high school football playoffs with Lowco First Down! With games spread out over three nights, we’ll keep adding more scores and details as they come in.


South Florence 50, Bluffton 0: LaNorris Sellers threw three TD passes, including two to his younger brother Jayden, and Raleigh Jett rushed for 178 yards and two TDs as the undefeated and top-ranked Bruins overwhelmed the Bobcats. Bluffton finished 5-7 in coach Hayden Gregory’s debut season and earned its first playoff win since 2017.


Beaufort 45, Crestwood 42: Kacy Fields scored a pair of rushing touchdowns and took a kickoff return to the house, and Caleb Ulmer, Samari Bonds, and Colton Phares all added second-half rushing touchdowns to help the Eagles rally from a 28-10 second-half deficit to survive a scare from Javion Martin and the Knights. Zach Talbert and Phares came up with second-half interceptions to aid the comeback. Beaufort (10-1) has won 10 straight games and will host either Gilbert or Manning next Friday.


Oceanside Collegiate 71, Wade Hampton 27


Estill 12, Carvers Bay 6: A week after the team’s combined for 125 points in their first-round wins, the Gators outlasted the Bears in a defensive slugfest to stay alive. Jaron Brown scored a rushing touchdown set up by a forced fumble, and Desmond Mathis had a pick-6 to give Estill a 12-0 lead after the teams played to a scoreless draw for three quarters. The Gators (11-1) host Cross in the Class 1A Lower State semifinals next week.


Colleton Prep 23, Beaufort Academy 20: Cole Davis threw three TD passes and Connor Nettles booted a go-ahead 33-yard field goal with 2:50 left in the third quarter that held up as the game-winner to send the War Hawks (11-1) to the SCISA 2A championship game. Jaxen Porter opened the scoring with a rushing TD and caught a 30-yard TD pass from Braydon Dineen for a 20-13 BA lead, but the second of Davis’ two TD passes to Walker Bryan tied it at 20 at halftime. Eli Rowe also had a TD catch for the War Hawks, who face Williamsburg Academy at 3:30 p.m. next Saturday at Charleston Southern.


Thomas Heyward 43, Calhoun Academy 22: Anthony Fripp scored a pair of touchdowns, and Tony O’Banner, Dietrich Shuford, Nicholas Robinson, and Tyshon Mansell each added TD runs as the Rebels rolled up a 36-0 lead before coasting to the finish. THA (8-3) will play for its fifth consecutive SCISA 1A title against Lee Academy at noon Saturday at Charleston Southern.
