WINNSBORO — Richard Winn fell behind early versus Andrew Jackson Academy. The Confederates used their size advantage to open up big holes in the running game, particularly to the left side and pass plays to their tight end who is about 6’5” capped off long scoring drives. At the end of the first quarter the Confederates led 22-0. But there was a lot of football remaining for the Eagles and the boys regrouped for the final three quarters. By the fourth quarter they cut the lead to 22-14. They added a touchdown to pull within two points but that was as close as RWA would come to Andrew Jackson Academy.

Fans and players and cheerleaders wore pink or used pink pompoms for the “Pink Out Game” to show support in the fight against breast cancer. For a complete write-up on the RWA game, see Tuesday’s edition of The Herald Independent.
