2014 Lowcountry football schedules: SCISA

This is my last in a series of football schedules that you have seen over the summer. SCISA practice started on July 31. I did not want to forget the great fan bases in SCISA and all of the programs who work just as hard, if not harder than the public schools do.

Here are the rest of the schedules in case you didn't see them: 1A- http://carolinasportsthoughts.blogspot.com/2014/07/2014-lowcountry-football-schedules-1a.html

Schedules were released earlier this year, but here I will discuss them by school and analyze them, for both 11-man and 8-man football. In SCISA, for all schools, these schedules will be exactly the opposite in 2015.

Regions for our local teams are listed here. Local teams are listed in bold.


Class A Region II: Bible Baptist, Colleton Prep, Curtis Baptist, Dorchester Academy, Hilton Head Prep, Thomas Heyward.

Class AA Region II: Bethesda Academy, First Baptist, Hilton Head Christian, Northwood Academy, Palmetto Christian, St. Andrews.

Class AAA: Augusta Christian, Ben Lippen, Cardinal Newman, Hammond, Heathwood Hall, Laurence Manning, Porter-Gaud, Pinewood Prep, Wilson Hall


Region II: Beaufort Academy, Cathedral Academy, Charleston Collegiate, Coastal Christian, Faith Christian, James Island Christian, Patrick Henry, Ridge Christian, St. John's Christian.

Here are the schedules:

10/31: Thomas Heyward 

Colleton Prep has a rather difficult schedule, having to go three of their first five on the road, including a couple of long trips to Savannah for St. Andrew's and Williamsburg Academy, but close with two of their final three at home. 

Dorchester Academy

10/24: Dorchester Academy (4:00)

Hilton Head Prep is one of the only schools in the state without lights, so they play all their games in the late afternoons on Fridays, giving them an advantage at home. They have three straight region road games in a tough break for them.

10/24: Palmetto Christian
10/31: @ Northwood

First Baptist has a decent schedule, drawing Class AAA Pinewood Prep in their opening game, and having two of their final three region games at home, but before the home stretch are three straight road battles.

Hilton Head Christian

8/22: @ Trinity-Byrnes
9/5: Bible Baptist
9/12: @ Northwood
9/19: First Baptist

A weird schedule for Hilton Head Christian. Four of their five region games will be done by October 3, and they close with four straight games on Hilton Head Island, three on their home field.

Northwood Academy

9/5: @ Hilton Head Prep
9/12: Hilton Head Christian
9/19: @ Thomas Heyward

Palmetto Christian plays a public school, Lincoln, in their second game of the season, as they get three home games in region. They do have to replace J.T. Waters, their star QB, who had one of the craziest games of the year last year at Porter-Gaud.

Class AAA

Pinewood Prep

8/22: @ First Baptist
8/29: Northwood

10/10: @ Hammond
10/17: @ Wilson Hall
10/24: Cardinal Newman
10/31: Porter-Gaud

Pinewood Prep plays a rare 11-game slate for a private school. Five of six games in the middle of the season for them are on the road. From September 5 to October 24 they will have just one home game. Luckily, they get two home games to end the season.


8/29: Palmetto Christian
9/5: Cardinal Newman

10/31: @ Pinewood Prep

Porter-Gaud, playing in the largest group of private schools, basically plays the same schools every year. They do start with three of four home games, which will help their young squad.
