After a six year absence, the Jefferson Davis Academy Raiders will play for the state championship in SCISA 1A football again.
Jefferson Davis Academy punched its ticket Friday night with a convincing 30-6 win over rival Patrick Henry Academy in the semifinals at Blackville.
The Raiders took the fire out of the Patriots early as they scored on their first three possessions for a commanding 22-0 lead.
The Patriots never recovered after that initial blow. They went scoreless for three straight quarters before adding a touchdown late to close out their season.
