Coming into the game, North Charleston had never defeated St Johns in Football before. The seventh time proved to be the charm as the Cougars came out on top 14-8 in a tough battle. The Islanders had won the previous six meetings by an average of 28 points, winning last year 45-14 and in 2016 48-18. North Charleston had their night this year and will look to take this victory and build upon it for conference play.
The Islanders fall to 1-2 overall and will look to avoid a third straight loss when Oceanside comes to Johns Island on Friday the 20th. Oceanside has started the season 3-0 and looks to continue to light up the scoreboard Friday night. The overall series between these two schools is tied at 1-1, with the Islanders winning in 2016 53-6 and the Landsharks winning in 2017 28-14. Last year’s game was canceled for one of the many hurricane scares that happened last year. Hope everyone can make it out to cheer on our Islanders in this tough non-conference match up.
