DP made the short trip up I-77 to Blythewood High School to see a Bengal rematch with JL Mann. The two squads met in Game 1, JL Mann and Wyatt Evans got the best of the Bengals that day 4-1. The traveling Patriots would, again, turn to their senior ace in hopes of advancing to the District Championship against Dorman this Friday.
A mild late spring evening greeted both teams in Blythewood. Midlands legend DJ Tony Bone had the tunes bumping and the energy was electric in Bengal country. Both teams brought robust crowds and a rematch of head skippers Banks Faulkner and Brian Simpson from the 2016 State Championship series was set to begin.
