All the Summerville area teams, save one, will play on the second night of this year’s Sertoma Football Classic.
The 43rd annual Sertoma Football Classic is scheduled for Aug. 22-23 at Johnson Hagood Stadium. This year 28 teams will pair off for their final pre-season scrimmages before opening the 2013 season the following week. Kickoff for the first quarter of both nights is scheduled for 5:45 p.m.
Pinewood Prep is scheduled to play against Burke in the sixth quarter Thursday. That night’s action will also include a pair of two-quarter scrimmages. Wando will face Hanahan for the night’s fourth and fifth quarters and James Island will take on Stratford in the nights final two quarters.
The following night, fans will have the opportunity to see four Summerville-area teams compete.
Fort Dorchester will take on Stall in the second quarter. That scrimmage will be followed by a quarter between Ashley Ridge and Woodland. Next, Summerville will face two-time defending Class AA champion Bishop England in quarters four and five. After a scrimmage between Northwood Academy and Porter Gaud, Cane Bay will take on Colleton County.
Friday’s final scrimmage will be a two-quarter event between Berkeley and Goose Creek.
