The first win of the season was worth the wait for Battery Creek, as the Dolphins opened Region 8-3A play with a critical 30-20 win at Academic Magnet on Thursday.

Jeremiah Dilbert had another monster game with 162 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries, and Dreshaun Brown added 62 yards and a touchdown on six carries and scooped up a blocked punt for a touchdown to lead the Dolphins to a huge win that boosts their playoff hopes.

Battery Creek was without four linemen, but the Dolphins still won the battle in the trenches, opening holes for Dilbert and Brown and giving quarterback Hunter Smith time to operate in his first start under center. Smith was 2-for-4 for 66 yards, including a 62-yard scoring strike to Kendall McMillon, who also had an interception on defense.

Quatrell Livingston had another big game on defense for the Dolphins with 12 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery, and Xzorion Berry added nine tackles in Creek’s best defensive showing yet.

Ivan Huerta helped seal the win with a 39-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, clinching a much-needed region win.

The Dolphins (1-3, 1-0) face a tough region test at home next week against Hanahan.
