Coach McKissick's Summerville Green Wave used the running of Great American Rivalry Series Most Valuable Player De'angelo Henderson to edge the Fort Dorchester Patriots 17-13 on Friday night. De'angelo Henderson's 148 rushing yards and a critical go head first half touchdown were too much for Head Coach Steve LaPrad's team.
Friday night's game was an old fashioned slugfest as the two teams battled for every yard in a first half that featured ten total punts. But Henderson's legs proved to be the difference as he raced 47 yards for a score and Summerville added a field goal to make the score 10-0 at halftime and the Green Wave never looked back.
In the second half, the Green Wave used a bend-do-not-break defense and they lead the built in the first half to hold off the Patriots. The Green Wave defense battered the Patriot's quarterback and racked up five sacks on the night and racked up a total of 340 yards of offense compared to only 250 for Fort Dorchester.
This seventeen year-old rivalry series between these two schools now stands at 15 wins for Summerville and two for Fort Dorchester. And as Coach McKissick walked off the field with another victory, the Green Wave stood, raised their helmets, and saluted their coach and another victory in his 52 year career.
