Stags down Hilton Head, secure third seed in 8AAA

  • Friday, November 1, 2013



Berkeley defenders Josh Simmons and Branden Williams led the Stags to a huge win Friday night against Hilton Head.

Simmons picked off one of two Berkeley interceptions on the night and Williams held North-South All-Star Khalil Lewis to minimal yardage as the Stags downed the Seahawks 26-6.

Kicker Vance Bailey kept the Seahawk offense pinned with their backs against the end zone and kicked four field goals plus two PATs, the dagger to the Hilton Head heart coming in the fourth quarter, a career long 42-yard boot to put the Stags up by 20. Bailey accounted for 14 of the Stags 26 points.

Joseph Dress and Josh Sellers added third quarter touchdowns to even Berkeley’s record at 5-5 and give Coach Jeff Cruce his first non-losing regular season as coach of the Stags.

With the win Berkeley will open the playoffs in the Myrtle Beach area, unofficially against Myrtle Beach, which upset North Myrtle Beach 30-28.

For bracket watchers, the win also moves Berkeley out of Socastee’s bracket. The Braves have bounced the Stags out of the playoffs each of the last two seasons.

Playoff brackets will be finalized on Sunday. See Wednesday’s Independent for complete football playoff news.
