Rock Hill crushes Conway as Tigers drop second straight

Conway put itself in an early hole it couldn’t climb out of in Friday night’s 34-13 loss to visiting Upstate powerhouse Rock Hill.

Needing to avoid mistakes in order to hang with the Bearcats, Conway allowed Rock Hill to take the opening kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown before many fans had even found their seats.

Conway fumbled away the ensuing kickoff to set the Bearcats up with prime real estate. Rock Hill quickly scored again for a 14-0 lead before Conway could  sustain a single drive. The Bearcats led 21-0 at halftime.

Conway QB Mykal Moody finally got the Tigers offense rolling in the second half, tossing a 20-yard touchdown pass to freshman Bryan Edwards. Conway’s Ashton McCants returned the favor by picking up a Rock Hill fumble and rumbling 46 yards to paydirt to cut the deficit to 21-13.

But the Bearcats (2-0) were simply too much, adding two more touchdown runs by Josh Irby to put the game away.

The Tigers (1-2) face undefeated rival Socastee next week.

    Really what did you expect. Conway is a really young team with pretty much no depth. Mykal can’t do it by himself. Credit to Conway for scheduling these powerhouses from the Upstate. NW and RH are solid as most teams are from up there. Playing quality opponents just makes you better. Outside of the first quarter it really wasn’t a crushing. Conway got it together a little in the second half and with a play or two could’ve been a tighter game. If we are going to beat MB this will help cause MB is no RH or NW and neither is Irmo. I pull for all Horry county schools when playing teams outside of our county. Glad MB got the win against W. Flo but I hope the Tigers beat MB but that will be a tall order. Remember many years in the 90’s when we were still a Big 16 team but would get beat early in the playoffs due to a fairly easy regional schedule filled in with Georgetown, MB, Socastee, etc. I can only think getting beat badly early will only be a good motivational tool and learning experience that can help us from now on out.
