Tigers, Panthers suffer tough Region 6-4A defeats

Football is a game of inches, but it came down to a fraction of an inch for Conway in Friday night’s 36-29 overtime loss at South Florence.

The Tigers (4-5, 2-1 Region 6-4A) were stopped at the goalline on fourth down in the first overtime period when Conway quarterback Mykal Moody was brought down right at the stripe. The call sparked an outcry from the Tigers’ sidelines, which felt Moody had broken the plane of the goalline but to no avail.

It was the second straight controversial call to go against the Tigers, as Moody’s pass to Bryan Edwards in the back of the end zone was ruled out of bounds. Then Moody rolled left and was brought down near the goalline, with the side judge marking it just shy.

The wild finish ended a wild night of back-and-forth offense from both teams. Moody, who ran for two TDs and threw for two more to fellow Shrine Bowl selection Malcolm Green, got the Tigers on the scoreboard first with a 1-yard TD run. The Bruins (7-2, 2-1) responded with a field goal and pair of TDs for a 15-7 halftime lead.

Moody connected with Green from 24 yards out and he ran in the 2-point conversion to tie it at 15-all in the third period. South Florence running back Jamall Cain broke loose for a 32-yard TD run to put the Bruins back on top but Moody responded with a TD drive, capped by a 1-yard dive into the end zone to tie it at 22.

The Bruins appeared to take control on Cain’s second TD run with 3 minutes remaining, but Moody again led the Tigers down field for the tying score. This time he hit Green from 7 yards out to make it 29-all, and the two teams went to OT. The Bruins scored on a TD pass and PAT, then their defense stopped Moody to secure the victory.

* Sumter 37, Carolina Forest 15: The Gamecocks scored 30 unanswered points to rout the Panthers (1-8, 0-3 Region 6-4A).

Carolina Forest built a 15-7 lead in the second quarter on a Will Brunson-to-Kyle Belack touchdown connection from midfield and Harold Atkinson’s 35-yard touchdown run.

But Sumter turned up the heat in the second half to the tune of 30 consecutive points to pull away for the key region victory. Carolina Forest travels to West Florence next week.
