Whale Branch snapped its two-game losing streak and effectively locked up a playoff spot with a convincing 24-0 homecoming win over Allendale-Fairfax.
Keith Bing scored on an 83-yard touchdown pass from Jaylen Reeves, and Jadon Grant added a 1-yard touchdown run, but it was the Warriors’ defense that dominated the night.
Joseph Hicks and De’Arius Hazel had huge games in the shutout, as Hicks had three sacks and four tackles for loss, and Hazel had three tackles for loss, a 5-yard fumble return for a touchdown, and a blocked punt for one of the Warriors’ two safeties.
The Warriors (5-2, 1-2) travel to No. 5 Bamberg-Ehrhardt on Friday.
