PLAY OF THE GAME: With 2:53 remaining in the game, Strom Thurmond reserve defensive back Marquise Lomax picked off a Jamal Bryant pass and returned it for a 31-yard touchdown.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Strom Thurmond RB Nick Williamson had an exceptional first half with 119 yards and a TD and a 48-yard pass reception, and finished with a total of 149 yards on the ground.

WHY STROM THURMOND WON: The Rebels picked off two Panthers' passes for 96 yards and a score and LB Marcelis Thompson blocked another PAT kick (his third in three games).

WHY BATESBURG-LEESVILLE LOST: By the end of the game, standout wide receiver Antonio Butler and quarterback K.J. Johnson were on the sideline with injuries. Penalties at crucial moments for 72 yards also got the better of Batesburg-Leesville.

QUOTABLE: "The defense played their behinds off, especially in the second half." -- Strom Thurmond coach Lee Sawyer

NEXT: Strom Thurmond (5-2) at Saluda (2-5), 7:30 p.m. and Newberry (5-2) at Batesburg-Leesville (4-3).
