Gaffney and Byrnes have historically been two of the best programs in the state of South Carolina and take part in one of the longest running rivalries in the area. Gaffney has won the last two meetings between the teams, including a 48-27 victory last season.
Byrnes will look to reclaim the upper hand in this Duncan, SC rivalry on Friday night.
Things looked bright for Gaffney as this game started. The Indians scored on a 96 yard pass play on their first play from scrimmage to go up 7-0. However, the Rebels from Byrnes would put a stop to any kind of momentum Gaffney thought they may have had. Byrnes drove down the field immediately after that first play and scored a touchdown themselves, tying the game 7-7. From there, Byrnes QB and Rivalry Series MVP Lawrence Scott took over. Running and passing, Scott led the Rebel offense to an eventual 27-7 lead with 5 minutes left, while the Byrnes defense also did their job, holding Gaffney steady. The game would finish up as an easy Byrnes victory, 34-14, pushing the Rebels to 4-1 and dropping Gaffney to 4-1 also.
