SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- The kickoff to Week 1 of high school football started with Summerville taking on Cane Bay in a redemption game of sorts for the Green Wave.
Last year, Cane Bay knocked off Summerville 10-3, so the Green Wave took to the field looking for some payback as head coach John McKissick begins his 62nd season.
The story of the game was defense and special teams. After taking a 7-0 lead on a 41-yard touchdown pass by Sawyer Bridges, the Green Wave defense forced a punt and Darin Smalls returns it for another touchdown.
Smalls continued to be a menace in the secondary, picking up an interception and returning it for another touchdown, making it 21-0 for Summerville.
In the fourth quarter, Bridges handed off to Jacerie Ponder for a 25-yard run for the goal line.
Summerville wins big, 28-0.
After the game, McKissick said the defense bailed out the offense, adding his team still has a lot of work to do.
