After getting its first region win last week, the Waccamaw High football team entered Friday's game with visiting Marion looking for another victory. The Swamp Foxes though saw things differently.

Keyonta Foxworth scored three times in the opening frame and Marion never looked back from there, rolling to a 42-3 triumph.

Foxworth touched the ball only four times in the first quarter, but he made the most of nearly every opportunity. Foxworth scored on runs of 72 and 44 yards and sandwiched a 61-yard touchdown reception in between to put the Swamp Foxes ahed 21-0 in the game's first seven minutes.

Marion (5-4, 2-2 Region VIII-AA) would build its advantage to 28 before Lucas Vozniak's 28-yard field goal got Waccamaw on the board in the closing seconds of the first half.

Waccamaw (2-7, 1-3) turned the ball over on its first possession in the third quarter and the Swamp Foxes put the game away from there. Devonte Gilbert's 4-yard run capped a 7-play, 51-yard drive to make it 35-3 and Lue Clemmons' 11-yard jaunt at the start of the fourth quarter provided Marion with its final margin.

Although the Warriors are guarenteed a playoff game under a new system adopted by the S.C. High School League, they still have to close out the regular season at Dillon, the top-ranked team in Class AA.
