Beaufort Academy has been eyeing a matchup with Hilton Head Christian Academy all season, and the Eagles made sure it will be a big one, remaining unbeaten in region play with a 43-6 home rout of Orangeburg Prep on Friday.
Cody Dalrymple rolled up 131 rushing yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries and added nine tackles, and Jaxen Porter scored on offense and defense to power the Eagles to a big region win a week after they were humbled at Thomas Sumter Academy.
Porter rushed eight times for 59 yards and caught a 65-yard TD pass from Braydon Dineen, and he also took an interception back 35 yards for a score. Dineen also starred on both sides of the ball, going 5-for-5 passing for 105 yards and a TD and racking up eight tackles to go with a 53-yard pick-6.
Devonte Green also found the end zone and finished with 36 yards on three carries as he works his way back from injury, but the Eagles didn’t need much from their starters after rolling up a 27-6 halftime lead.
Colton Collins added eight tackles and Jackson Davis had seven in an excellent defensive outing as BA prepares for a tough test next week.
BA (4-2, 3-0) travels to HHCA with a region title on the line Friday.
