Gamecocks claim region crown; perfect regular season
IRMO, SC (WACH) -- The Irmo Yellowjackets hosted the Sumter Gamecocks in the season finale of Sonic Friday Night Rivals.
The winner would claim at least a share of the region crown heading into playoffs. In a hard fought game that was moved up to Thursday because of impending weather it was the Gamecocks that came out on top.
Irmo opened the scoring with a couple of field goals but Sumter would take the lead midway through the second quarter and never look back.
Sumter's Jonathan Henry continued what he's done all season for the Gamecocks .
The senior running back racked up 149 yards on 26 carries and scored 2 key touchdowns on his way to GEICO Player of the Game honors.
His work cemented the Gamecock's perfect regular season record and a region championship as Sumter defeated Irmo 27-9.
