In Friday’s region showdown with Batesburg-Leesville High, Barnwell High didn’t force a lot of turnovers nor did the team’s offense set off a lot of fireworks.
What Barnwell High did to Batesburg-Leesville was much more subtle.
The Warhorses disrupted the the flow of the top-scoring offense in the region. They limited a Panther unit that averaged 39.7 points a game to just one trip into the endzone. The end result was an impressive 20-6 win.
Considering the competition, the Warhorses easily turned in their best defensive performance of the season.
