Patriots stomp Cougars in region battle

  • Wednesday, October 23, 2013

roper-photography.com Senior wider receiver Corey Rawlings scored on a 52-yard pass play Friday to help the Patriots earn their first region win.

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.
