WINNSBORO — Richard Winn’s big victory over Coastal Christian earned them a rematch with Greenwood Christian on Friday night.

When the two teams met Oct. 16, Greenwood dominated the Eagles, handing them their worst loss of the season, 56-23.

“We’ve already looked at that game that we played just a couple of weeks ago, we saw some mistakes that we made that we can’t afford to make again, and that’s the big thing,” Coach Dan Dickerson said.

Greenwood, led by head coach Gary Gillion, has had a rather impressive season, racking up 10 wins, including seven in the region, and only one loss.

The Greenwood Hawks battled off Charleston Collegiate, 30-20, in their first round match-up, and narrowly avoided an upset.

Dickerson does not believe the earlier loss will be a factor, and in fact he thinks that loss may prove to be beneficial to them.

“From their side it’s extremely difficult to beat a good team two times, and we don’t need to take that for granted obviously, but we need to make sure that we prepare, and that we’re ready to play them,” he said.

If Greenwood players are stuck on their previous victory, it could potentially be one of the biggest advantages the Eagles have, according to Dickerson.

“If they can’t get it out of their head that they beat us 56-23, I don’t care how hard their coaching staff tries,” Dickerson said. He went on to add that his guys “remember that.”

This time the meeting will take place in Greenwood, but Richard Winn has been impressive on the road, and two of the Eagles’ three losses have came at home.

Fans will get to see this rematch Friday, and kick off is at 7:30 p.m. in Greenwood.
