Beaufort smothers Goose Creek on wet night
Colton Phares booted field goals of 24 and 35 yards and helped anchor a dominant defensive effort as the Beaufort Eagles blanked the Goose Creek Gators, 6-0, on a soggy night on Lady’s Island.
Phares connected on a pair of field goals in the first quarter, and that proved to be enough for a nasty Beaufort defense, which came up with a fourth-down stop inside the 5 before halftime and sealed it with a Carter Bowersox interception in the final two minutes.

John Paul II 42, Memorial Day 7
Quarterback Christian Tilton rushed for 222 yards and two TDs, threw a TD pass, and returned a free kick following a safety for a score to lead the Golden Warriors to a lopsided road win despite playing without star running back Jackson Ogden (ankle). Bryant Jolley, Alex Mercer, and Javi Jimenez each scored their first career TDs for JPII, and Kohl Woodham (6 tackles) and Sam Rembold (5 tackles) anchored the defense, while Sebastian Slusne blocked a punt for a safety and recovered a fumble and Dante Aiken and Dan Snyder each secured interceptions.

Savannah Christian 49, Battery Creek 6
The Dolphins couldn’t slow down the Raiders’ juggernaut offense, as Paulus Zittrauer was 11-of-14 passing for 164 yards and four TDs and Zo Smalls added a touchdown run. Battery Creek’s lone score came on a kickoff return TD from Hunter Hollingsworth. Bluffton’s Logan Brooking had eight tackles, two sacks, and three receptions for 56 yards for Savannah Christian.
