Soccer: MB claims region; Braves edge Chiefs in PKs

The Myrtle Beach boys soccer team clinched its fifth consecutive region championship Monday with a 5-2 victory over St. James at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

Tied at 1-1 at halftime and 2-2 early in the second half, the game took a turn in the Seahawks’ favor when they scored three unanswered goals to complete the win.

Myrtle Beach junior Sam Coughlin scored a hat trick, the second time he has accomplished the feat against the Sharks in the Soccer at the Beach final last month.

Seahawks freshman Roman “Cheeto” Perez scored a goal and assisted on two more. The Seahawks, winners of seven of the past eight region crown, improved to 16-5.

* Socastee 4, North Myrtle Beach 3 (PKs): The Braves had to go to sudden death penalty kicks to hold off a hard charge from the Chiefs.

Chris Matleshewski scored a hat trick in regulation and helped the Braves build an early 2-0 advantage, but the Chiefs scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-2 lead late.

Matleshewski’s third goal sent it to overtime, double overtime, and eventually a nerve-racking PK session that saw the Braves outshoot North Myrtle Beach by a 5-4 margin.

Socastee plays host to Carolina Forest on Wednesday, while the Chiefs welcome rival Myrtle Beach on Thursday.
