Region 6-4A Wrapup: Tigers top Wildcats; Bruins beat CF

Conway High football stars Mykal Moody and Malcolm Green were selected to the Shrine Bowl on Wednesday. On Friday night in front of a large homecoming crowd, they backed it up.

Moody connected with Green for three touchdown passes and Moody also threw for another score and ran for a pair of TDs for a 56-45 victory over visiting West Ashley.

Moody scored from 1 yard out to start the scoring, then hit Green from 15 yards out for an early 14-0 lead. After the Wildcats scored their first touchdown of the night, Moody found Green again for a 41-yard TD pass and a 21-7 lead.

West Ashley kicked a pair of field goals to sneak back within striking distance of the Tigers, but Moody threw a Hail Mary to Bryan Edwards in the end zone just before halftime for a 28-16 lead at the intermission.

The third Moody-to-Green connection of the night – a 56-yarder to open the second half – essentially put the game away, and Moody’s 7-yard TD run later in the third period prompted the Tigers (4-4, 2-1 Region 6-4A) to call off the dogs.

Sawyer Jordan and Jaquail Crosland scored late TDs for the Tigers to make it a 56-19 advantage, but the Wildcats poured on some late points in the final frame to make it closer than the final score indicates.

* South Florence 32, Carolina Forest 13: The Panthers’ hopes for an upset of the visiting Bruins was almost over before it began.

South Florence’s Tabari Hines took the opening kickoff the distance for a quick 6-0 lead against the struggling Panthers (1-6 overall, 0-2 region).

Carolina Forest managed to take its only lead of the game on a 14-yard touchdown jump pass from running back Harold Atkinson to Ryan Yurachek – the first of two TD receptions by the tight endon the night – for a 7-6 lead in the second period.

But Wilson regained control before the half on a 38-yard TD run by Jamall Cain, and Mason Edwards added another TD run in the third for an 18-7 advantage. The Wildcats also scored a fumble recovery return and another touchdown pass to put the game away.

Carolina Forest looks for its first region win next week against visiting Sumter.
