Boys soccer: Defense fuels wins for Seahawks, Sharks

mbsoc-16-celebThe Myrtle Beach High boys soccer team breezed through the first round of the Class 3A state tournament with a 5-0 shutout victory over visiting Airport.

The top-seeded Seahawks (17-4-1) soared past the Falcons into the second round, posting their third consecutive shutout and their sixth straight win overall.

Myrtle Beach’s Hunter Hardin and Franc Lamjca scored two goals apiece and senior Sean Huggins added another. Alan Vasquez, Mitchell McCrackin, J.R. Stanley, Abdul Mashritov and Foster Russell dished out assists.

The Seahawks offense has scored 32 goals during their current hot streak, but the more impressive number is the defense’s five shutouts during the six-game stretch.

Led by starting goalkeeper Skylar Hribar and defenders Mark Phillips and Jake Deskins, Myrtle Beach has allowed only one goal during their current six-game winning streak.

* St James 3, Gilbert 0: The second-seeded Sharks shut out Gilbert behind another strong performance in goal by Haywood Brandon to advance to the second round of the Class 3A playoffs.

The Sharks got goals from Luke Williams, Joey Simpson and Drew Volpe, and Brandon made five saves while getting solid defensive support for the team’s 16th shutout victory of the season.

The Sharks travel to top-seeded Hilton Head on Thursday.

* Socastee 2, Lexington 1: The top-seeded Braves survived a first-round playoff scare at home but advance to the second round Thursday against a team to be determined.

* Brookland-Cayce 4, North Myrtle Beach 0: The Chiefs saw their season come to an end on the road with a shutout loss to Brookland-Cayce.
