Trailing 28-21 at the half, North Myrtle Beach scored the first eight points of the third quarter to take a 29-28 lead with 5:51 on the clock.

The lead changed hands three times over the next four minutes before NMB’s Kendricka Bellamy regained the lead for the Lady Chiefs at 39-37 with a trey with 1:48 remaining in the third quarter.  The lead would prove to be the last for the Lady Chiefs as Myrtle Beach reeled off nine straight points.  The Seahawks went on to lead by as many as 12 points in the closing seconds.

Khadijah Sessions led Myrtle Beach with 33 points, 12 rebounds, a season-high nine assists, and seven steals.

North Myrtle Beach was paced by Taylor Allman’s 16 points and four steals.  Bellamy added 12 points for the Lady Chiefs, while Ja’Quella Livingston posted 11 points and nine rebounds.
