Week 6 Previews & Picks: Region 7-3A play kicks off

mbfoot-hugginsfgThe so-called “second season” kicks off Friday night for Region 7-3A, and the race for playoff positioning appears to be the more wide open than ever.

That may sound crazy after the league traded two-time champion Socastee for Lake City, but the Panthers are off to a 4-1 start and looking like a contender. So is Georgetown, which has its best team in years, and Wilson has a prolific offense that could cause problems for teams as attrition begins to take a toll on depth charts in October.

No. 1 Myrtle Beach (5-0) is the obvious favorite, although the Seahawks need to shore up their defense to avoid the upset bug on the way to the region title. But Wilson’s woeful defense won’t be able to contain Myrtle Beach’s high-octane offense. … Myrtle Beach 56, Wilson 21.

* North Myrtle Beach at Lake City: Despite their inverted record, the Panthers (4-1) and Chiefs (1-4) are evenly matched and loaded with talent. North Myrtle Beach has had the tougher schedule and the tougher breaks, losing to Socastee on a last-second touchdown.

But this is region play, and the Chiefs have to cut out the mistakes if they want to turn their season around. Expect North Myrtle Beach to finally put together a complete game. … North Myrtle Beach 20, Lake City 17.

* St. James at Georgetown: The Sharks (2-3) showed some true grit in taking Socastee to the wire in the mud last week, but they picked a bad time to take on the Bulldogs (4-1).

Not only is Georgetown coming off its first loss, but the Bulldogs also welcome back quarterback Jarvis Brown. St. James needs another big effort on defense. … Georgetown 17, St. James 13.

* Williamsburg Academy at Christian Academy: Hang tough, Saints. Your day is coming, but not Friday against the undefeated Stallions. … Williamsburg Academy 34, CA 6.

Last week 4-0; Overall 20-5
