Seahawks seek to stay unbeaten against Bruins

A season that was supposed to be filled with question marks couldn’t have started much better for the Myrtle Beach High football team.
The turning point came in Week 2, when thunderstorms twice halted the game with the Seahawks trailing No. 8 nationally ranked Byrnes 21-0.
Things didn’t look good for the Seahawks. Byrnes hadn’t lost a home game in a decade and Myrtle Beach’s vaunted defense was on the ropes against the Rebels.
But when the skies cleared, so did the Seahawks’ concerns. They rallied to tie the game at 21 at the end of regulation, then won it 28-21 in overtime.
Now the national media has taken note, ranking the Seahawks No. 11 in USA Today. Let’s just hope the attention hasn’t gone to their heads this week.
Myrtle Beach faces a tough test in South Florence (3-1) on Friday, but the Seahawks defense is holding down the fort while the offense is improving every week. Hard to go against a team that keeps getting better, especially on the rain-friendly turf of Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium. … Myrtle Beach 38, South Florence 14.

* Conway at Marlboro County: This rivalry has been one of the region’s best over the years and tonight’s installment should be no different.
Conway junior quarterback Mykal Moody is showing why the hype has surrounded his career since his freshman year. The dual-threat QB is willing the Tigers to wins.
Conway (3-1) struggled against another rival, Socastee, last week and could have their hands full against Marlboro’s black-shirt defense, and Bennettsville is a tough place to beat the Bulldogs (2-1).
Conway’s lone loss was to S.C. state power Summerville and Marlboro’s lone defeat came last week to N.C. state power Scotland County, so it’s tough to tell exactly where these two teams fit into the playoff picture. That will change after Friday’s game … Conway 19, Marlboro County 16.

* Carolina Forest at Kingstree: The Panthers (2-1) are much improved this season behind the arm of QB Danny Daly and the legs of RB Harold Atkinson.
The Jaguars (0-3) are down, but all three of their losses have come to quality opponents. The difference this year is that Carolina Forest is a quality opponent.
Already road tested with a blowout win at Socastee, the Panthers will stay on the right course with a victory at Kingstree. … Carolina Forest 34, Kingstree 10.

* Lake City at Socastee: The Panthers ran roughshod over the Braves last season, but Lake City (1-2) is a different team without RB Shon Carson carrying the load.
The Braves defense should be able to keep the Panthers from hanging 54 points on them like they did last season, and the wish-bone offense may be effective against a Lake City defense that has struggled to stop opponents this season. Look for the Braves to control the ball and the game. … Socastee 20, Lake City 16.

* Hemingway at St. James: The Sharks (1-2) are coming off a bye week but didn’t have time to gameplan for the Tigers (3-0). St. James coach Mark Fischer and his players went to his former school, Louisa (Va.), which suffered heavy damage from a 5.8 earthquake that struck there last month.
But the Sharks will need more than good karma to stop the Tigers, who are favored to win another state championship this season. Let’s hope the team bus gets lost on the way to Murrells Inlet. … Hemingway 41, St. James 21.
