East Columbus 52, North Stokes 6

LAKE WACCAMAW | Not only did the Gators grab the first home playoff win in school history, but this year's version also owns the school record for most wins in a season, as well.

These records only supply more confidence to a bunch that is sure in its ability to perform in the postseason.

"(We'll play) until we get to the end of the tracks or top of the mountains as we say," said East Columbus coach Toby Kasell. "Our eyes are focused. We're just taking it one game at a time."

Nick McClure had four touchdowns – 28, 46, 16 and 25 yards – as East Columbus (8-4) plays South Stanly next Friday in the second round of the Class 1A playoffs.
