Barnwell (S.C.) High remained undefeated on Friday night with a 45-7 dismantling of nearby Swansea (S.C.) High. As usual, the Warhorses leaned heavily on its running game for the victory. An offensive line anchored by North Carolina pledge Marcus McKethan helped path the way for 344 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
In addition to his run blocking, McKethan, a 6-foot-6, 328-pounder who lined up at both left and right tackle, helped keep quarterback Pete Elmore clean on all five pass attempts. One of Elmore's tosses resulted in a sixth touchdown.
After a bye week, Barnwell (5-0) hosts St. Matthews (S.C.) Calhoun County (3-1) on Sept. 30.
