The Battery Creek football team fell short in a bid to get into the win column in its second outing in the 2015 season. Host Estill doubled up Battery Creek 14-7 in the early-season matchup. With the win, Estill evened its record to 1-1. Battery Creek dropped to 0-2 with the loss. Estill landed in the win column after forfeiting its season-opener to Porter-Gaud. Battery Creek’s only touchdown came on a keeper from quarterback Darius Brown. Long runs from Tyrone Dilbert and Alterell Chatman set up the Dolphins’ lone score.
Battery Creek, a team under the direction of head coach Jim Shuman, had its chances to claim the win as each squad vied for the victory. The Dolphins, however, committed multiple turnovers including a costly fumble on the opening drive when Estill recovered.
Opportunistic Estill scored each of its touchdowns off Battery Creek turnovers. Battery Creek is scheduled to visit Hilton Head Island for its next game on Sept. 11.
