Battery Creek rallied in the fourth quarter for its second consecutive Region 8-3A win, beating visiting Ridgeland-Hardeeville 13-12 on Friday.

The Dolphins are now assured of at least the No. 3 seed in the Class 3A playoffs following an 0-6 start.

The game was scoreless until the second half, when the Dolphins finally broke through for a 7-0 lead on Gabriel Singleton’s touchdown run.

The Jaguars answered with a pair of touchdowns to take a 12-7 lead, but Battery Creek’s Jordan Gwyn threw a touchdown pass to Kyseem Jabar in the final minute to claim the victory.

Singleton rushed for 76 yards and a score on 12 carries, and Gwyn was 4-for-8 passing for 94 yards and a touchdown and had an interception on defense. The Dolphins’ defense recorded six tackles for loss and three sacks. 

Battery Creek (2-6, 2-1) travels to undefeated May River next Friday while Ridgeland-Hardeeville (2-5, 0-2) hosts Wade Hampton.
