Boys Hoops: Chiefs surge past Braves with 10-0 run

nmbhoops-14layupPlaying its second game in as many nights, the North Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team dug deep Friday night to knock off visiting Socastee 70-60.

The Chiefs scored 10 unanswered points to close the first half and carry a 30-24 advantage at intermission. The Chiefs built their lead to as many as 13 in the third period before the Braves made a late run.

Socastee cut the deficit to four on two different occasions but couldn’t get any closer. North Myrtle Beach, coming off a 52-43 loss to Conway on Thursday, hit its free throws down the stretch and played scrappy defense to preserve the win,

Both teams open region play next week as North Myrtle Beach travels to St. James on Tuesday, while Socastee visits Conway on Tuesday.

* St. James 46, Waccamaw 45: The Sharks held on for a one-point win over the visiting Warriors to close out their non-region campaign.

St. James got a game-high 18 points from Jackton Hurston. Jordan Fields added eight points and Trey Myers chipped in six. St. James plays host to North Myrtle Beach in their Region 7-3A opener on Tuesday.

* Summerville 64, Carolina Forest 59: The Panthers came up short in an upset bid of the visiting Green Wave, committing too many mistakes to overtake the Gators.

Carolina Forest was led by Duane Moss with 17 points, Matt Weatherwax with 15, and Richmond Collier added nine. The Panthers travel to West Florence for their Region 6-4A opener on Tuesday.

* Goose Creek 92, Myrtle Beach 36: The visiting Gators ran the Seahawks out of the gym for the second time this week to close out the non-region portion of the schedule.

Goose Creek jumped out to a 30-6 lead after one period of play and rolled the rest of the way. Five Gators scored in double figures while Chris Weston was the lone Seahawk to post 10 points.

* Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 70, Dillon Christian 20: The Saints rolled to their fifth straight victory to improve to 8-9 overall and 3-0 in region play.

The Saints were led by Michael Green with 17 points, six rebounds and five assists. Senior Bennett Pearson added 10 points, and Robert Guyton and Jay Williams had eight points apiece.
