WILLIAMSTON -- Boasting of a ground and pound rushing attack coming into Friday’s first round AAA Upper State playoff game with visiting Camden, Palmetto seemingly played into the Bulldogs’ hands in the first half with the visitors carrying a 7-3 lead into the locker room. The host Mustangs were stymied by a staunch Camden defensive effort which allowed just a 25-yard field goal early in the second quarter in the game’s opening 24 minutes. Palmetto did what it does best in the second half, running the ball 33 times from its 38 plays --- while eating up large chunks of the clock --- after the break while limiting CHS to just 19 second half snaps in a 19-7 Mustang victory.
