The sixth annual Red Rose Classic, originally set for this weekend starting today at Indian Land High School’s Warriors Stadium, has been moved to a one-day event on Saturday, March 2.

The tournament, which will be played at Indian Land High School, will feature host Indian Land along with county foes Buford and Lancaster high schools.

“We were scheduled to begin Friday (Feb. 22), but with the forecast for heavy rain Friday, Saturday and Monday, we moved it to a one-day event on March 2,” Indian Land head  coach Adam Cole said. “With the weather, we felt this was about all we could do in order to have the tournament this season. Weather and time constraints with the season opening Monday, March 4, this is about all we could do.”

The action on Saturday, March 2 opens with host Indian Land, the defending Class AA Upper State champion, meeting Buford at 10 a.m.

Buford faces Lancaster at 1:30 p.m., with the final match set for 5 p.m. when Indian Land will face Lancaster.

Cole said the tournament will use a points system to determine the champion, which includes three points for a win, one point for 3 goal maximum, one point for a shutout and a negative point for a red card during play.

 Lancaster is led by first-year boys coach Alex Tarque, while the Jackets are guided by John Bundy.
