Senior Sean White scored three touchdowns Friday to lead the Swamp Foxes to their third straight victory.
Ashley Ridge (3-4) handed Colleton County (2-5) a 44-25 loss during the Region 8-AAAA opener for both teams.
“We played well in spurts,” Ashley Ridge coach Kenny Walker said. “Our offense ran the ball well. The offensive line of Jonathan Byrd, Keith Clark, Tyler Moss, Kenny Glover, Devin Parker, along with Steven Truelove and Noah Carter, gave our backs room to run.”
White thrilled fans in The Swamp, making four receptions for 112 yards and carrying 18 times for 108 rushing yards and three scores. Junior running back Tyler Garland rushed for 135 yards and a TD.
The Swamp Fox defense also provided some big plays, including a Pick 6 by outside linebacker Tyquan Tucker. Defensive back Kendall Felder made another interception for Ashley Ridge, his fourth of the season.
“Defensively we caused turnovers and contained another good quarterback most of the night,” Walker said.
Tyler Moore finished with a team-high 10 tackles, including a sack, and forced a fumble. Sophomore linebacker Brandon Brown had nine tackles on the night. Damon Smalls forced a fumble and recovered it.
The Swamp Foxes will look to keep their winning streak alive and boost their standing in the region when they travel to face Bluffton Friday night. The Bobcats are 4-3 with a 0-1 standing in the region after falling 35-27 to Beaufort last week.
