Football Roundup: Braves beat Chiefs; Sharks shut out

Socastee opened Region VIII-AAA in winning fashion Friday night at North Myrtle Beach, hanging on for a 35-20 victory over the Chiefs.

Aided by a 61-yard interception return by Erick Mortel and a 14-yard touchdown run by Michquan Brown shortly before a line of thunderstorms crossed through the area, the Braves (2-4, 1-0 region) carried a 16-0 lead into a 1-hour rain delay.

The Chiefs (0-6, 0-1 region), looking to snap their 17-game winning streak, stormed back when play resumed in the second quarter. Sophomore quarterback Will Hardwick hit Jameke Gause for an 11-yard touchdown pass and Hardwick found Michael Donohue for the 2-point conversion to cut the deficit in half, 16-8.

But Socastee quarterback Jordan Renfrow led the Braves on a long TD drive that he capped with a 1-yard TD plunge to put some distance between them and the Chiefs that the Braves would need.

North Myrtle Beach’s Delonzo Williams scored on a 9-yard TD run and backup QB Clint Cole dived into the end zone for a 1-yard TD to cut the deficit to 29-20 with just under 3 minutes remaining in the game. The Chiefs failed on a 2-point conversion try that could have made it interesting. Socastee added a TD with 48 seconds left to account for the final score.

“Anytime you spot a team 16 points, especially one in our region, it’s going to be tough to get those back,” North Myrtle Beach coach Perry Woolbright said. “But the kids battled back and it was 20-19 after that point. We just have to learn to cut down on turnovers and play a complete game.”

Daquan Brown had 21 carries for 120 yards and Michquan Brown had four carries for 46 yards to lead Socastee.

Williams led the Chiefs with 74 yards on 21 carries and Jameke Gause caught seven passes for 89 yards.

The Braves welcome rival Myrtle Beach next week while North Myrtle Beach travels to Georgetown.

* Georgetown 27, St. James 0: The Sharks were shut out by the Bulldogs in a rainy gameĀ  at the Shark Tank.

St. James (2-4, 0-1 Region VIII-AAA) trailed just 7-0 at halftime but couldn’t stop the Bulldogs’ (5-1, 1-0 region) ground game in the swampy conditions.

St. James travels to Florence next week to face Wilson.
