There was plenty of offense on display in Saturday’s opening round of the Dixie District IV Darlings All-Star game between Edisto and Barnwell.

By the time the game concluded, 35 runs were on the scoreboard. The Barnwell All-Stars, however, proved to be the more resilient team on the day as they hung on for a 18-17 victory.

Barnwell All-Stars coach Rick Arnold said his team came through in a very exciting game.

A mere one vote - or lack thereof - caused a need for a runoff for the council seat between the top two vote-getters next Tuesday, June 28.
