The Greer Citizen/Owens Insurance Players of Week 8 were honored during last week's Greer Touchdown Club.
For the first time since 2009, Eastside will have its say in the state playoffs.
The Eagles topped Blue Ridge, another playoff team from the region, 56-22 last Friday, punching its ticket and securing a solid playoff position.
Blame bad timing for wrecking Greer’s claim to another region football title when Union County chose Friday night to play its best game yet. Meanwhile while Greer remained in some disarray caused by injuries and youthful inexperience that enabled a 42-28 Union victory and the Region Two championship at the Union County Stadium.
With a trip to the playoffs on the line last Friday night; Riverside struggled on the road, dropping its fourth region game to Greenwood, 63-14.
Greenwood is the region’s top team, and Riverside Head Coach Phil Smith knew his Warriors would need a strong outing to stay in playoff contention.
Playoffs are off the table for Riverside, but the Warriors can still send their seniors off with a win this Friday night as they get set to take on Wade Hampton.
To do so, however, Riverside will need discipline on defense.
More than bragging rights are on the line Friday night when Greer and Blue Ridge clash at 7:30 p.m. at Dooley Field. Both teams are almost desperate for a win.
