Irmo let the Green Hornets utilize the airways but stuck to their guns and came away with a mild upset in region play. In fact Irmo attempted just one pass to our recollection and it went for an interception so back to the ground game it went. Mario Carter lead the charge with 132 yards rushing while quarterback Leander Barney added 105 yards on the ground. Carter scored 3 touchdowns and Barney added another in the fourth quarter.
Aiken made a late comeback in the game but was turned back as the Yellow Jackets sacked Aiken QB Phillip Lee for a safety in the final minutes of action.
The loss leaves Aiken's record at (7-1) on the year while Irmo moves to (6-2). The race for the Region 4 AAAA title now becomes all the more interesting with the Yellow Jackets case looking stronger and stronger heading towards the playoffs.
