Chiefs snap 22-game losing skid with win at Waccamaw

The streak is dead!

After losing 22 consecutive games dating back to the 2009 season, North Myrtle Beach opened the 2012 campaign by not only getting the monkey off its back, but also body-slamming it to the turf.

The Chiefs (1-0) scored a dominating 50-14 victory over host Waccamaw on Friday night, the first time the majority of the players on the North Myrtle Beach roster has experienced a win, much less a winning record, by beating the Warriors (0-1).

“I couldn’t be more proud of this football team,” said North Myrtle Beach coach Perry Woolbright, who also earned his first victory in his third season with the Chiefs. “With all the things they’ve had to endure … they all earned this win.”

North Myrtle Beach junior running back Delonzo Williams rushed for 177 yards and scored four touchdowns, including a pair of TD runs in the first half to help the Chiefs build an early 20-0 lead and the Chiefs. But the Warriors were able to make it interesting for a while.

Waccamaw punched one in just before halftime to make it 20-7 before the Chiefs countered to open the third quarter with a touchdown pass from quarterback Kendrick Furness to Cameron Gore. Furness also ran for a touchdown in the first half.

Waccamaw answered again to cut the deficit to 26-14, but Williams quickly responded with his third TD of the night by taking the ensuing kickoff the distance. He added his fourth TD run with an 11-yarder to make it 38-14 late in the third period.

Brandon Moore broke free for a 28-yard touchdown scamper in the fourth quarter to make it 50-14, capping a night in which the Chiefs tallied more than 400 yards of total offense.
