Hoops: Seahawks sweep Braves; CF defeats NMB

mbhoops-13The Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team got a measure of revenge against visiting Socastee on Tuesday night, beating the Braves 56-44 just one week after letting one slip away to the non-region rival.

Myrtle Beach blew a double-digit fourth quarter lead to Socastee last week before falling in overtime. This one was even closer than the first meeting as the two teams were tied 26-all at the half 26-all, and 37-all at the end of the third quarter. The Seahawks outscored Socastee 19-7 in the final frame.

Myrtle Beach’s Robert Swanson and Emroie Knox led the Seahawks with 19 and 11 points, respectively. Socastee was led by Jason Cudd with 15 points and Alex Collins with 10.

* Carolina Forest 83, North Myrtle Beach 55: The Panthers led only 35-32 at halftime but erupted in the second half to blow out the Chiefs for the second time this season.

The Panthers were led by Duane Moss’ game-high 22 points, and Tariq Timmons tallied 18. Jaylen Johnson scored 11, Ismael Garcia added nine, and Richmond Collier had eight points as a total of nine Panthers got in the score column.

The Panthers host Myrtle Beach on Thursday night.

GIRLS

* Carolina Forest 45, North Myrtle Beach 42: The Lady Panthers rallied in the fourth quarter to defeat the Lady Chiefs and sweep the season series.

Trailing 34-31 entering the final frame, Carolina Forest hit some key free throws and put backs down the stretch to seal the victory. Alexis Tomlin led the way with 12 points and 13 rebounds, while Cheyenne Pyles and Ellen Nardella scored 11 apiece.

Carolina Forest hosts Myrtle Beach on Thursday.

* Myrtle Beach 58, Socastee 18: The Lady Seahawks (4-0) remained undefeated by rolling past the Lady Braves.

Myrtle Beach Nia Sumpter scored a game-high 15 points and Tatyanna Hollins also scored in double digits with 11. Kiana Adderton added nine and was one of nine Lady Seahawks to get in the score column.

Shayla Baldwin and Mercer Roberts had six apiece to lead Socastee, which failed to score in the first quarter and fell behind 14-0 after the opening period.

Socastee travels to St. James on Friday. Myrtle Beach visits Carolina Forest on Thursday.
