Big games by Gore, Bellamy lead Chiefs’ rout of Tigers

The first half of North Myrtle Beach’s 48-20 victory over visiting Wilson ended the same way as it started – with Colby Gore sprinting the length of the field for a touchdown.

The key difference: Gore’s first TD was a 98-yard return of the opening kickoff for a 7-0 lead; his second was a 76-yard pick-six of a Hail Mary pass as time expired to give the Chiefs (7-1, 2-1 overall) a 35-6 comfortable halftime lead and another key region win over the Tigers (2-6, 1-2).

In between Gore’s big plays, North Myrtle Beach’s Laquinn Bellamy had his usual big night on defense but also had a career night on offense. Bellamy ran for three first-half TDs of 48, 76 and 4 yards and finished with 277 yards. He also made 10.5 tackles, three for loss, and had two sacks.

The Chiefs’ lone mistake of the night may have been calling off the dogs too early as the Tigers threatened to sneak back into the ballgame. Wilson quarterback T.J. Frederick threw for a touchdown and ran for another to help the Tigers cut the deficit to 35-20 in the third period.

Wilson drove deep into Chiefs’ territory with a chance to cut into the lead farther but turned it over on downs with a big defensive stand. NMB quarterback Kendrick Furness finally drove a nail in the Tigers’ coffin with a 6-yard TD in the fourth quarter, and Trey Farmer added a 46-yard TD in the final seconds to account for the final score.
