Tigers rally, Panthers routed in Region VI-AAAA openers

Conway quarterback Mykal Moody and his supporting cast pulled off a courageous comeback victory over West Florence in the Region VI-AAAA opener for both teams.

Conway fell behind 14-0 early, but Moody passed for three touchdowns and ran for two more as the Tigers (3-4 overall, 1-0 region) scored 35 unanswered points for a 35-14 victory over the host Knights (5-2, 0-1).

The Knights, who are projected by many to win the region this season after a strong start, appeared to be right early Moody’s counterpart, West Florence QB Marquane Goodman, threw a TD pass and ran for another in the first half for an early 14-0 lead.

But Moody led the Tigers back, scoring on a 1-yard run and tying the game on a 20-yard TD pass to Kahmil Cooper. Moody gave Conway its first lead on a 9-yard TD run for a 21-14 advantage.

Moody and top target Malcolm Green connected twice on TD strikes to put the game on ice. Conway’s defense held the Knights scoreless over the final 2 1/2 quarters in their first game since giving up 56 points to Myrtle Beach.

The Tigers play host to West Ashley next week in another key region matchup.

* Goose Creek 56, Carolina Forest 6: The Gators (6-0, 1-0) rolled up 339 yards of total offense against the Panthers (1-6) who play host to South Florence next week.
