GREENVILLE — Easley hung on Friday night for a 28-27 win over Wade Hampton, getting a stop on a late two-point conversion to seal the win.

The Green Wave (1-1) had chances to put the game away with several scoring chances in the second half, but had to hold on in the end.

“At the end of the day, you’ve got to celebrate a win,” Easley coach Jordan Durrah said. “The objective is to win the game. It was ugly. We didn’t want it to be that close after being up that much in the first half. They did a great job of fighting back and making it a game.”
