Week 1 Football Roundup: Black Friday strikes again

confoot-30runBlack Friday struck for the second straight week for Grand Strand football fans as local teams went 1-4 on Friday, a slight improvement over last week’s 0-5 start to the season.

Following a tough Week 0 that saw all five local teams lose (Socastee won its opener at West Brunswick last Saturday in a rain-delayed game), Grand Strand teams posted had another tough Friday (Myrtle Beach won on Thursday and Socastee plays on Saturday in the Kickoff Clash).

St. James provided the only local victory, defeating Andrews 23-8 on the road. The Sharks jumped out to a 13-0 halftime lead on a pair of short touchdown runs by Alan Crum, and they held on to bounce back from last week’s loss at Loris and to deliver the first win for coach Robby Brown.

Loris 14, North Myrtle Beach 7

In the game of the night in North Myrtle beach, the Chiefs (0-2) had their second straight mistake-riddled performance in a 14-7 loss to rival Loris (2-0).

The Lions scored all of their points in the first quarter, including Desmond Dozier’s 75-yard TD reception on their first play from scrimmage and Levi Moody’s 48-yard fumble recovery to make it 14-0 early. It was all the offense Loris could muster, but it also was all they needed.

Loris held NMB scoreless until the fourth quarter in a defensive battle on both sides. The Chiefs lost three fumbles and failed to score inside the red zone twice until Kyle Cooper’s 13-yard touchdown catch from Kendrick Furness to the cut the deficit in half with 3 minutes left.

The Chiefs got two more shots to tie it up but failed to convert against the Lions’ tough defense.

Hoggard (NC) 21, Conway 7

Conway came out swinging in its Kickoff Clash game against visiting Hoggard, scoring on irs first possession on a 57-yard touchdown run by Jah’Maine Martin for a quick 7-0 edge.

The Tigers defense held the lead until late in the first half. Hoggard’s Harrison Smith caught a TD pass from quarterback Austin Schoenleber with less than 2 minutes left in the half, and the two hooked up again seconds later after Conway fumbled the ensuing kickoff.

The two teams played a tough defensive battle to keep the Tigers (0-2) within striking distance, but Hoggard (2-0) converted a key fourth-and-goal for a late touchdown that put the game away.

Fort Dorchester 46, Carolina Forest 7

The Patriots scored virtually every possible way in the first half, including a sack for a safety on the opening series, to put the Panthers away early.

Following the safety, Fort Dorchester scored via rushing touchdown, a field goal, a punt return for a TD and a passing TD to claim a 26-0 lead. They led 39-0 at the half and called off the dogs to give up the shutout in the second half.

Dillon Christian 40, Christian Academy 0

The Saints got a rude introduction into the world of 11-man football at Dillon Christian. The Saints kept it close early on before the more experienced team took advantage of CAMB’s mistakes en route to the rout.
