Girls Hoops: Seahawks top Chiefs; Tigers rally for win

Tuesday night’s girls basketball showdown in the North Myrtle Beach-Myrtle Beach rivalry was billed as a matchup between top-five teams in the state. But the Lady Seahawks saw it as an opportunity to claim a more important number – as in No. 1 in Region 7-4A.

No. 5-ranked Myrtle Beach scored a 48-31 victory over No. 3-ranked North Myrtle Beach, establishing itself once again as the team to beat in the region. The four-time defending region champs have defeated No. 9-ranked Wilson and the No. 3 Lady Chiefs to take over the driver’s seat in the most competitive league in the state.

Myrtle Beach got a balanced effort that was led by Ivy Collins with 12 points and Ajia Kelly with 9. Twins Janell and Jalah Horton chipped in 7 and 6 points, respectively, and Asia Smith added 6 points.

The Lady Seahawks (14-3 overall, 4-0 region) used a suffocating team defense to down the Lady Chiefs (14-3, 2-2), which lost to Wilson last week. Myrtle Beach plays host to Wilson on Friday while the Lady Chiefs face St. James.

* Conway 48, Sumter 41: The Lady Tigers battled back from a 15-point halftime deficit to capture another hard-fought region contest with the Lady Gamecocks.

Conway’s Meme Williams led the Lady Tigers with 20 points and Neci Hemingway owned the boards with 13 rebounds and 8 points. Lenaejah Evans added 12 points for Conway.

The Lady Tigers face South Florence on Friday.

* Carolina Forest 69, South Florence 36: The Lady Panthers (14-4, 6-0) continued their undefeated run through Region 6-5A with an easy win over the visiting Lady Bruins.

Carolina Forest jumped out to a 21-5 first-period lead and never looked back. Alexis Tomlin scored a game-high with 25 points with 7 steals and 5 blocks. Cheyenne Pyles-Moultrie added 16 points and 5 steals. Ellen Nardella and Aubrey Bowen had 10 points and 5 steals apiece.

The Lady Panthers return to action Friday night at Socastee.
