Playoff Football Schedule

Update: Because of some confusion within the Class AA, Division II bracket, several games were changed. It affected Andrews' opponent. Originally, it was released that Andrews would play Barnwell. However, after re-calculating points, Andrews was matched up against Mullins.

All playoff match-ups for area teams in Classes AAA-A are out. All games are listed below. Check Sunday's edition of The Sun News for a full story involving area teams.

Socastee (10-0) will have a first-round match-up against Crestwood. Myrtle Beach (9-1) will also have a home game, playing Manning.

Georgetown was the third and final team out of Region VII-AAA, and the Bulldogs will head to Marlboro County.

The Class AA, Division I bracket is out, and Loris' second-place finish in Region VIII-AA was enough to warrant a first-round bye. The Lions (7-3) will also get a second-round home game against the winner of the Waccamaw-Battery Creek game. This is the second straight year Loris has earned a first-round bye. In 2011, the Lions lost in the second round to eventual state champion Timberland.

For the Warriors, coach Tyronne Davis' team has a chance to do what Aynor did a season ago. Waccamaw (3-7) lost all five region games and enters as the postseason needing something positive after six straight losses overall.

In the Class AA, Division II field Aynor and Andrews know who they are playing.

Aynor (7-3 overall, 3-2 Region VIII-AA) did more than enough to warrant a home game. The Blue Jackets will play Kingstree (1-9, 0-5 Region VII-AA) in the first round.

The winner of that game will head to No. 3 Lee Central, which received a first-round bye after going 7-3 and finishing in second place in Region VII-AA.

Andrews struggled to a 2-8 regular season and finished in fourth place in Region VII-AA. However, the Yellow Jackets will have a chance to turn it around in the all-inclusive postseason format. Andrews will head to Barnwell (4-6). The winner of that game will head to Bishop England (9-1).
