Socastee shuts down NMB to force a tie in region race

socghoops-15The Socastee High girls basketball team took a big step toward improving its playoff hopes with an impressive 52-38 victory over visiting North Myrtle Beach on Friday night.

Despite a long layoff due to weather delays, the Lady Braves (13-10 overall, 4-5 Region 7-3A) came out hot and held off the Lady Chiefs (15-8, 4-5) to force a two-way tie for third between the two teams.

Socastee outscored NMB 18-3 in the second quarter to claim a commanding 28-10 advantage at the half. The Lady Chiefs shot just 10 percent from the field in the first half and never threatened the rest of the way.

Socastee’s Mia Angelo had a season- and game-high 18 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Sierrah McCarthy had three treys and finished with 15 points, and Kira Bell scored seven points but pulled down 11 rebounds.

NMB, which has struggled with shooting throughout the season, got 12 points and nine rebounds from Marci Chestnut. Ingrid Edge and Aquera Johnson scored 11 apiece and combined for 15 boards, but the Lady Chiefs shot just 22 percent for the game.

NMB hosts first-place Myrtle Beach on Saturday while Socastee visits fifth-place St. James. Only the top four teams from the region qualify for the playoffs. A potential tiebreaker to decide seedings would be held Monday.
