  • York 56 – Laurens 0: The Laurens Raiders hosted the York Cougars in 1st round playoff action last Friday night and to say that York was an underrated 9-2 team would be an understatement as the Cougars took a 56-0 win.. York dominated the game as they amassed 381 yards of total offense on 46 plays to Laurens 112 yards in 60 plays.. Laurens finishes the season 8-4 overall and 6-1 in the region.. I have a posting at wlbg.com that has complete statistics on the game as well as final season statistics in several categories… I’ll have more on tomorrow’s sports report about the seniors who have played their last football game for Laurens High. 

Other High School Playoff Results:

  • Ware Shoals 31 – Lamar 30: For the 2nd week in a row the Ware Shoals Hornets game from behind to upset a higher ranked team as they traveled to Lamar and came away with a 31-30 win over the Silver Foxes.. Ware Shoals trailed 30-14 at the half and scored 17 unanswered points in the 2nd half.. Jeremy Hart kicked the 25 yard winning field goal very late in the 4th period for the win..
