The Berkeley Stags traveled across town to face off against the Summerville GreenWave in the first round of the 5A Lower State playoffs on Thursday night to see who can gain the first edge in their pursuit for a state championship. The GreenWave lived up to their name as the wave of fans packed the stadium located in the birthplace of sweet tea. The Stag army “found a way” to match the intensity of Summerville’s fanbase as they traveled from Moncks Corner to fill up their section. Berkeley entered today’s contest 20-3 on their season and are ranked 4th in the state, while the 9th ranked Summerville High School finished their season 19-10. With less-than-ideal weather conditions and a steady mist in the air, the crosstown rival matchup was set to get underway.
