Nash Roundup: Braves top Sharks in OT of title game

The boys final of the Michael Nash Memorial Tournament came down to a pair of neighborhood rivals – one the tournament’s two-time defending champion, the other a newcomer to competing for championships.

But the newfound pressure didn’t seem to faze upstart St. James, which went toe-to-toe with rival Socastee before falling 3-2 in double overtime.

Socastee’s Connor Baker-Norton scored the game-winner in the first minute of the second extra period to retain the title to the annual kickoff of the soccer season on the Grand Strand. It was his second score of the night.

Keaton Zimmer and Enrique Morales scored goals for the Sharks and goalkeeper Haywood Brandon made 10 saves against the Braves.

The Sharks (3-1) were the surprise of the tournament, sweeping their three pool games to reach the finals. After falling behind Carolina Forest 1-0 in the first half of their opening game, St. James went on to outscore its opponents 19-1 over the next 2 1/2 games before facing the Braves in the final.

The Sharks defeated the Panthers 3-1, shut out Georgetown 10-0 and beat Georgetown 6-1 on Saturday. Quadarius Grate scored two goals, Conor Sloan and Cameron Volpe had one goal and one assist apiece, and Zimmer and John Santos each scored goals to propel St. James to the title game.

Socastee (4-0) also cruised through pool play as expected, blasting Conway 5-1 in Saturday’s early game.

* North Myrtle Beach 2, Airport 0: Phillip Webster and Jeremy Sopa scored goals for the Chiefs.* Carolina Forest 6, Georgetown 1: Michael Brooks netted a hat trick and teammate Zac Cuomo scored two goals and dished out two assists, both going to Brooks.  Ian McIlrath scored the other goal as the Panthers rolled.

Girls

* Airport 1, Camden 0: The Lady Eagles captured the girls championship of the Michael Nash Memorial Tournament on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Lady Bulldogs.

* Carolina Forest 2, Bluffton 2: The Lady Panthers battled to a draw with the Lady Bobcats in Saturday’s final day of the Michael Nash Memorial Tournament.

Carolina Forest’s Erica Gazzani converted a corner-kick header and teammate Meagan Fludgate scored the other goal for the Lady Panthers (1-1-1). Gazzani, who scored four goals in the three-day tourney, was named to the all-tournament team.

* North Myrtle Beach 5, Aynor 0: Ashley Robinson scored a hat trick for the Lady Chiefs and Lauren McCarthy and Brielle Buis added one goal apiece in the shutout.

* Camden 1, Conway 0: Jazzmine Devlin scored the game’slone goal as the Lady Bulldogs shut out the Lady Tigers.

* Airport 2, Socastee 1: Amber Rutledge scored for the Lady Braves but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Lady Eagles.
