Wild Gators and Bears ready for battle

LAKE VIEW, S.C. (WMBF) - In Extra Point's Week Eight Game of the Week, Lake View and Carvers Bay will face off and jockey for region positioning with the playoffs looming. However, the postseason isn't anything new to either of these teams.

Carvers Bay went to the Class 1A, Division I championship game last year, becoming Lower State champs during the run. Meanwhile, Lake View has had similar success. The Wild Gators made it to the state title game two years ago, and have made trips to the Lower State finals ever since. But as expected, the group on the field this year wants to experience completely new heights for Lake View.

"This year I think we have a very good team, and we're really working to get better," said senior lineman Tibias Bethea.

"We've got several seniors this year, I think 12 seniors that got to play in the Lower State championship games," said head coach Daryl King. "They see how it feels to get there, and you just preach to them that you want to take the next step."

Kickoff is set for 7:30 on Friday at Carvers Bay. Highlights and reaction can be seen on Extra Point.
