Boys Hoops: Seahawks top Braves; Chiefs rally for win

mbhoops-socftThe Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team had to survive a late scare to escape The Wave with a 57-46 victory over rival Socastee.

The Seahawks (10-5 overall, 2-0 Region 7-3A) jumped out to a huge early lead over the Braves (9-7, 1-1), leading by as many as 22 points in the first half before hanging on to remain undefeated in region play.

Myrtle Beach was up 36-17 at halftime, but the Braves cracked down on defense and slowly chipped away at the deficit, cutting the advantage to single digits in the final minutes of the fourth period.

Socastee’s Koel Cutler hit a 3-pointer with 2 minutes remaining to make it at an eight-point game at 47-39. The Braves got as close as seven, 53-46, in the waning seconds but could get no closer.

Myrtle Beach’s balanced scoring effort was led by Brooks Swanson with 15 points. Solomon Cooper tallied 12 and Will Gray had 11. Socastee was led by brothers Finn and Devin Melko with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

The Seahawks play host to St. James on Tuesday. Myrtle Beach alum and Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions will be honored at the game.

* North Myrtle Beach 52, Wilson 48: The No. 6-ranked Chiefs used late run in the fourth quarter to score a 52-48 road victory over Wilson.

NMB (13-3 overall, 2-0 Region VII-AAA) trailed 35-33 with 6:12 to play, but the Chiefs went on a 14-4 run to open a 47-39 advantage with 1:19 on the clock.  During the run, the Chiefs connected on 6-of-8 shots from the field.

Other than this stretch late in the fourth quarter, North Myrtle Beach connected on just three of 18 shots from the field in the second half. The Tigers tried to get back in it but couldn’t recover from the Chiefs’ late surge.

Matt Lindsey scored a game-high 17 points and twin brother Josh Lindsey joined Kendrick Furness in double figures with 10 points apiece.

* Carolina Forest 73, South Florence 66: The Panthers (8-7 overall, 2-0 Region 6-4A) won their sixth straight game and took over the top spot in the region with a win over South Florence.

Following a 17-all score at the ed of the first quarter, Carolina Forest caught fire for a 10-0 run to take a commanding lead over the Bruins (8-5, 1-1). The Panthers withstood every charge to snap the Bruins’ six-game winning streak.

Carolina Forest was led by Jawan Butler-Stevens’ double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Zavier Jones and Ryan Yurachek tallied 17 points apiece. Yurachek just missed a double-double of his own with nine boards.

* Christian Academy 92, James Island Christian 43: The Saints (11-5 overall, 5-0 Region 3A) ran away with it early and were able to substitute freely as 11 players got in the score column.

Bernard Jones had a game-high 22 points, eight assists and five steals, and Austin Guyton scored 20 points. Cole Gore finished with 14 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals, and Josh Lang scored 11.

CA has a one-week break before facing Faith Christian next Friday.

* Sumter 68, Conway 57: The Tigers suffered a tough region loss to the Gamecocks.
