The Simulator: Playoffs Begin

Playoff Match ups = Big 16


West Ashley    at Dorman

Lexington        at Sumter


Irmo                 at Spartanburg

Summerville      at Rock Hill     


Wando            at Northwestern            

Gaffney          at Fort Dorchester



Playoff Match ups = Division 2


South Florence         at Byrnes                         

Spring Valley           at Conway


Richland Northeast at Aiken

Greenwood             at Dutch Fork


Westside                 at Berkeley

Battery Creek          at Fort Mill                       


South Aiken           at Crestwood

Marlboro County   at North Augusta                            




As always the first round of the playoffs in Class 4A is well, not very good. Too many average teams traveling to play away games against too many good teams.


There were a few upsets however. Gaffney traveled down to Fort Dorchester and upset the Patriots. The past 2 years have seen the Indians play their best game of the season in the playoffs against a Charleston area school. Last year the 8th seeded Indians almost beat the top seeded Stratford Knights and almost caught the Green Wave in 2000.


Greenwood avenged the loss to the Silver Foxes in 2001 playoffs. Greenwood by playoff time could be a formible team and a contender for the title.
