Fort Dorchester 21, Beaufort 6
The Eagles went toe-to-toe with the No. 2 team in Class 5A for most of the night, pulling within 14-6 on Caleb Ulmer’s 1-yard run to cap an impressive drive late in the third quarter, but the Patriots were able to put away the pesky Eagles, who are ranked sixth in Class 3A. Highly-touted QB Zolten Osborne threw a 26-yard TD pass to D’Antre Ham in the first half and added a 1-yard TD run after a 43-yard strike to set it up. Colton Phares collected 10 tackles and broke up two passes to lead a strong defensive effort from the Eagles, who had seven tackles for loss and three sacks and forced two turnovers against a dangerous Fort D offense. Week 2: Beaufort (0-1) vs. Hilton Head Island.
