LANGLEY — Beaufort found out the hard way that giving Daniel Carr a second chance isn’t a good idea.
The Midland Valley senior quarterback led a game-winning drive with under two minutes to play as the Mustangs rallied for a 35-28 victory in the first round of the Class AAA playoffs at L.L. Willis Stadium.
After botching a drive inside the Eagles’ 10 on the previous drive – Midland Valley snapped the ball on fourth down instead of calling a timeout – the Mustangs got the ball back at Beaufort’s 49 with 1:59 to play.
A rainy, record-breaking month has prompted increased water releases from Thurmond Lake this week, causing Savannah River levels to rise and boat ramps near Augusta to close, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Friday.
Stan Simpson, a Corps water manager, said in a online post that Thurmond release rates have been just shy of 30,000 cubic feet per second this week and will average approximately 25,000 cubic feet per second over the next few days.
