Braves stave off Seahawks, stay atop region standings

The Socastee High wrestling team remained undefeated in the region by scoring a hard-fought 39-35 victory over Myrtle Beach on Friday night, thanks in part to a big upset in the 113-pound division.

Socastee’s Jordan Hodge scored a surprise second-round pin of Myrtle Beach senior Jonathan Iseman, who is ranked No. 5 in the state in Class 3A. Although it came early in the meet, the match may have been the difference in a see-saw battle between the two region rivals.

The Braves started the night by winning four of the first five matches, including pins in the lower weights by Justin Knipper (106), Hodge (113) and Mikel Nelson (120).

But the Seahawks won four out of five on their own, including pins by Diego Garcia (126), Alex Mauricio (138) and Joseph Desjardines (152). Along with a technical fall by Daniel Miller (145), Myrtle trailed just 27-26.

Socastee took control with Tommy Lazaroff’s (160) pin for a 33-26 lead. Myrtle Beach got three points from Zachery Seymour’s decision, but Zach Mor (182) sealed the deal for Socastee with a first-round pin that clinched the victory.
