Seahawks work overtime, knock off No. 8 Byrnes

In a matchup of the defending state champions (Byrnes in Class AAAA and Myrtle Beach in Class AAA), this one took two rain delays and one overtime to settle.

In the end, it was Myrtle Beach snapping the No. 8 team in the nation’s 70-game home winning streak with a 28-21 comeback victory over the Rebels in Duncan.

Tramond Wilson caught a 10-yard pass from C.J. Cooper in the final minute of regulation to tie it, then hauled in the game-winner from Tyler Keane in overtime.

Seahawks defensive back Daquarius Wilson intercepted a pass in the end zone on Byrnes’ overtime possession, giving Myrtle Beach one of its biggest wins ever.

The Seahawks trailed 21-0 in the first half but finally got on the scoreboard on the first of three TD catches by Tramon Wilson, this one a 12-yarder from Cooper.

The first of two rain delays halted the Seahawks’ comeback, but the skies cleared lone enough for Myrtle Beach to cut the deficit to 21-14 on a touchdown by Wilson.

After a second rain delay in the fourth quarter, Myrtle Beach drove the length of the field after forcing Byrnes to punt the ball with just over 2 minutes remaining. Cooper completed a long pass to set up and first-and-goal inside the 10, and on the next play he hit Tramond Wilson in the corner of the end zone with 1:11 left in regulation.

Max Huggins’ PAT tied the game and sent it into overtime, and the Seahawks got the ball first on the 10. Keane found Wilson again for their first lead of the game.
The Rebels tried to score and send it into a second extra period, but Daquarius Wilson’s interception marked the end of the epic battle and halted Byrnes home run.

The Rebels, who were coming off a 68-0 win over Louisville (Ky.) Ballard, had not lost in their home stadium since the 2000 state semifinals, when Conway defeated the Rebels on a rainy night.

The Seahawks used their two-QB rotation and spread offense to escape the Byrnes’ strong pass rush, racking up 263 passing yards to only 112 for the Rebels.

Myrtle Beach (2-0) remains on the road next week against West Florence.
