4A Roundup: Chiefs shock Wolves; Lions top Sharks

nmbfoot-3jumpThe North Myrtle Beach High football team couldn’t have picked a better way to kick off 2016 on Friday night – both the game and the season.

Kered Class returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown and the Chiefs never trailed en route to a 28-13 upset victory over visiting Timberland, the No. 3-ranked team in Class 3A.

The Chiefs (1-0) went toe to toe with the two-time state champion Timberwolves, but also used some trickery to claim the win. NMB quarterback Ronnie Bass made a misdirection pitch to Reece Finch for a 15-yard TD and a 14-0 halftime lead.

Timberland cut the deficit in half in the third quarter on a short TD run by quarterback Jacquez Mitchell, but the Chiefs quickly responded. This time Bass was on the receiving end of a reverse pass from Naseem Harrison to push the lead back to double digits, 21-7. Bass threw a fourth-quarter TD pass to Cullen Mitchell to clinch the victory.

Timberland added a touchdown in the final seconds but it didn’t damper the celebration for the Chiefs, who play host to rival Loris next Friday.

* Loris 30, St. James 14: The Lions used an opportunistic defense to thwart a Sharks’ comeback bid and open the season with an impressive victory over a 4A foe.

Trailing 21-7 at halftime, St. James threatened to get back in the game after scoring on its opening drive of ths second half on a 6-yard touchdown run by quarterback Sage Pascoe. The Sharks (0-1) got the ball back looking for a tying TD drive but instead coughed up the ball and saw Bobby Gore scoop up the loose ball and rumble 33 yards to paydirt. The Loris defense added a late safety to account for all the scoring in the second half for the Lions.

St. James running back Jay-Mion Pressley scored on a 52-yard TD run to tie it at 7-all early but the Lions scored two TDs before the half – first on Tyreke Williams’ second rushing TD of the night and second on quarterback Clay Faircloth’s short TD run in the final minute.

The Sharks have a short turnaround to face Waccamaw on Thursday.
