Kobe Garrett turned in an impressive performance at his father’s old stomping grounds Friday.
The Fort Dorchester quarterback accounted for approximately 220 yards of offense during a 56-14 Patriot win over Colleton County. Garrett rushed for more than 100 yards and passed for just under 100 yards in the victory over his father’s alma mater.
Gianni Garrett was a quarterback for Walterboro High School back in the early 1990s before Colleton County High School was built for students countywide.
“Kobe had a big game and our defense played one of its best games of the season,” Fort Dorchester coach Steve LaPrad said. “We had a bit of a slow start offensively but then we scored a lot of points. Colleton County is a dangerous team so I’m glad we have that game behind us.”
The Patriots improved to 5-3 with a 1-1 mark in Region 8-AAAA with the win. Colleton fell to 2-6, 0-2.
Garrett scored on a 31-yard run and completed two TD passes. Senior Corey Rawlings scored on a 52-yard pass play and senior D’Monte Bailey sored on a pass from 6 yards out.
Matt Murray scored three TDs on runs of 10, 3 and 34 yards. Nahshon Cyrus scored on a 12-yard run and Eurndraus Bryant scored on a 2-yard run. Bryant also ran in a two-point conversion following the TD by Cyrus and was a force on defense.
“Eurndraus had his best game yet,” LaPrad said. “He was a factor on just about every defensive play. Myles White also had a great night. I think he ended up with 16 tackles to lead the team.”
The Patriots took a 35-6 lead into halftime and then put 14 points on the scoreboard in the third quarter.
Colleton County’s scores came on a 1-yard run by Ramon Hall, a 19-yard pass from Nikeal Simmons to LaTrell Nieves and a safety. This Friday, Fort Dorchester hosts its final home game of the season against Bluffton.
