Battery Creek tops North Charleston 33-16 to move to 2-0 in region

After a tough 1-4 start to the season, Battery Creek held off North Charleston 33-16 on the road Friday night to open its Region 6-AA slate 2-0.

Alterell Chapman rushed for 100 yards and two scores to lead the Dolphins (3-4, 2-0).

"Darius Brown ran the read option well at quarterback," Battery Creek head coach Jim Shuman said.

Brown scored a touchdown, as well.

Despite little rushing yardage on the night, Dolphins's star Tyrone Dilbert also scored. Dilbert is nursing a nagging bruise on his foot.

"It was a close game, back and forth," Shuman said.

After North Charleston (5-2, 0-2) took a 19-16 lead, Chapman answered with long touchdown before DeMarquis Gadsen's 30-yard interception return for a touchdown helped ice the game.

Defensively, Eddie Dean led the way with 16 tackles for the Dolphins.

Battery Creek standout Sonja Jones hurt his thumb and had to leave the game.
