Week 2 High School Football Previews

2 mins read

Beaufort High (1-0) at Battery Creek (0-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday

The Eagles have won 12 straight meetings between these crosstown rivals dating to 2003. Going into the season, it appeared the rivalry game might be closer than it has been in several years, but the Dolphins struggled out of the gates in a 31-9 loss to Whale Branch. 

Beaufort High is looking to build off last week’s season-opening 35-21 home win over A.C. Flora in which quarterback Jeffrey Smyth and running back James Dagin had big games and the defense tightened up in the second half. 

Whale Branch (1-0) at Cross (0-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday

The Warriors are off to a 1-0 start for the first time since 2011 after a convincing 31-9 win over crosstown rival Battery Creek, and they have a great chance to improve to 2-0 when they visit a Cross team that was blanked 26-0 at Burke last week. 

Whale Branch running back Irvin Mulligan started the season with a bang, rushing for 232 yards and two touchdowns, and the Warriors should be able to find more running room this week. 

Clarendon Hall (0-0) at Beaufort Academy (0-0), 7:30 p.m. Friday

Coming off a playoff appearance last season, Beaufort Academy opens longtime Beaufort High coach Mark Clifford’s first season at the helm with a home game against the Saints. 

Clarendon Hall won last season’s matchup 46-28 in Week 2.
