Soccer: No. 3 Seahawks down No. 1 Braves on PKs

Not even a round of five penalty kicks could decide Tuesday’s much-anticipated showdown between No. 1 Socastee and No. 3 Myrtle Beach.

Tied at the end of regulation, double overtime and a round of PKs, the Seahawks finally snapped the stalemate on a successful penalty kick by Myrtle Beach’s Arly Barr and a successful stop by goalkeeper Anthony Silvestri on Socastee’s Wesley Durant for a 2-1 (6-5 PKs) victory at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

Durant opened the scoring for the Braves (8-1 overall, 1-1 Region 7-3A) on a corner-kick assist just 10 minutes into the contest, but Myrtle Beach’s Mason Lewis got a breakaway goal with just seconds left in the first half to make it 1-all at the intermission.

The two teams took turns stopping chances to force yet another extra-time showdown between the state powers. Myrtle Beach has now won seven straight against Socastee, with six of those contests decided by one goal or PK.

* Carolina Forest 6, Conway 5: Sebastian Perez scored the game-winning goal in double overtime to give the Panthers a hard-fought victory over a tough Tigers team.

Carolina Forest’s Ian McIlrath scored four goals for the Panthers and Javier Monroy added the other in regulation¬† as the Tigers trailed 5-3 late. But Ashton McCants’ goal in the final minutes of regulation forced extra time.

Carolina Forest’s Josh Riley made the assist to set up Perez’s game-winner and the Panthers held Conway scoreless for the final three minutes of double OT to preserve the win.

Girls

* Myrtle Beach 2, Socastee 1: Angela Hervick and Madison Tilford scored goals in the first 20 minutes of the game and it turned out to be all the offense the Lady Seahawks (3-1 overall, 1-1 region) needed in beating the Lady Braves.

Socastee’s Amber Rutledge scored in the second half to cut the deficit in half but the Lady Braves were unable to break through Myrtle Beach’s defense to do any further damage.

* Carolina Forest 2, Conway 0: Riley Lynch scored one goal and assisted on another to lead the Lady Panthers (4-6-1, 1-0) to Region 6-4A victory over the Lady Tigers.

Lynch’s corner kick was converted by Katelyn Perry for the game’s first goal, then Lynch had the favor returned on an assist from Meagan Fludgate. Goalkeeper Allie Ethridge had four saves for the shutout.¬† CF now 4-3-1 on season.
