Editors note: Journal sports writer Mike Matthews suffered health problems over the weekend and was unable to provide a Pregame Preview and other information on the Palmetto vs. Pendleton playoff game in time for publication in the print edition of The Journal this week.  We have posted it here:
 
Palmetto  vs.  Pendleton
First-Round Game  in  the  State  3-A  Playoffs !!!
This Friday  Night    Mustang  Stadium    7:30
(Come  Join  ‘U’S  As  We  Celebrating The  Naming  Of  The  Football  Field  In  Honor  Of Coach  Dale  Martin !!)
 
Palmetto  is  8-2  and  seeded  second  in its  playoff  bracket;  Pendleton  is  5-5  and  the third-seed.
Pendleton  had  won  nine straight  over  Palmetto before  the  Mustangs  beat  the Bulldogs,  31-14,  in  this  year’s  second  game.  The  Bulldogs  lead  the  series,  17-16.
 
With  a  victory,  the  Mustangs  would  either  travel  to  Region  IV  Champion  Fairfield  Central  in  Winnsboro, or  host  fourth-place  Woodruff  from  Region  II  next Friday.
 
*Mustang  QB  Shaw  Crocker  has  thrown  for 2,482  yards,  for  an  average  of  248  per  game!*
This  Is  NOT  the  same  Pendleton  team  Palmetto  faced  eight  weeks  ago !!!!  The  Bulldogs  were  missing a  number  of  starters  due to  injuries  for that  game,  but  are  back  healthy  and  much  stronger !!!!
 
The  Mustangs  are  having  their  best  season  since  2010….Let’s  help  them keep  it  going !!!
