An undefeated season came to a stunning end for North Augusta.

Westwood upset the Yellow Jackets, 23-13, in the first round of the Class AAAA playoffs Friday night at the Jackets Nest.

North Augusta was bidding for an 11th consecutive win after completing its first undefeated regular season since 1962.

North Augusta opened the scoring on a Landon Washington touchdown pass, but it was all Westwood the rest of the first half. The visitors scored on a kickoff return to tie it and added two touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 20-7 lead at halftime.

Westwood added a field goal in the third quarter to pad its lead to 23-7.

North Augusta, playing without star running back Derius Gibson, scored late in the fourth quarter on another Washington touchdown pass.

The two-point conversion failed and North Augusta trailed 23-13 with just over three minutes to play.

Westwood (6-5) will play the winner of the Eastside-Wren contest in the second round.
