On the final Friday of the regular season, DP made a return trip to Hillcrest High school to witness a rivalry contest that has a rich tradition. Tonight, the Rams played host to the Mauldin Mavericks. With a victory, the Mavericks would wrap up a region title while the Rams of Hillcrest are looking to secure a playoff spot along with seeding implications. Tuesday night, Mauldin captured a 7-5 victory to propel themselves in to the driver’s seat of region 2-AAAAA. Game time was set for 7:30 as the two JV programs played their contest prior to the varsity. After a few blustery days, winds have finally died down and were not a factor in tonight’s critical region matchup.
