The calendar has turned to October with Greer fast running out of time to discover the secret to success before visiting Eastside on Friday night.

The Yellow Jackets are off to a 1-6 start, the worst since 2007, after being buried under a landslide of mistakes while losing their Region II, 4-A opener to Laurens.

The Warriors will look for its third win of the season at Laurens on Friday.

Warriors demolish Generals at home

Sitting at 2-5 now, Riverside picked up their second win of the season on Thursday against Wade Hampton.

Quarterback Rob Sanders had an outstanding game with 191 passing yards, no interceptions, and five touchdowns; however, the first drive left you to wonder how the rest of the game would play out.

The Eagles defense couldn’t hold off Emerald’s effective running game on Thursday.

Emerald and Eastside fought a close battle through the high winds of the incoming storm, with Emerald eventually pulling off a 27-14 victory.

Starting with an 85-yard drive to grab 7-0 lead, Greer did not look like the usual homecoming cream puff. Seconds later, however, the big plays roof fell in on the Yellow Jackets who were outscored 38-6 the rest of the way in a road loss at Westside High.
