Kickoff Classic: Seahawks reload; Chiefs get revenge

nmbfoot-12scrambleCNB Kickoff Classic host Myrtle Beach came into the 10-team jamboree with the most question marks, but it was rival North Myrtle Beach that made the biggest impression.

After falling flat against Conway in last year’s CNB Kikcoff Classic, the Chiefs turned the tables on the Tigers in the 27th annual event for an impressive 20-0 victory at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

North Myrtle Beach’s spread option attack ran roughshod over Conway. The tailback tandem of T.J. Gore and Kered Class scored running touchdowns, including a 25-yarder that saw Gore flip over a defender. Quarterback Ronnie Bass also scored a keeper to cap the scoring, but the Chiefs may have been more impressive on defense, limiting the Tigers to only 10 total plays.

* Myrtle Beach 26, Aynor 8: Looking to replace two of the most prolific offensive players in school history, the Seahawks showed they have the talent to reload.

Junior quarterback Lawson Cribb was rock solid in replacing three-year starter Drayton Arnold, throwing touchdown passes to Marcus Grissett and Daron Finkley to cap nice drives. Backup Austin Riggs also had a TD pass to Dylan Lane, and highly rated freshman Luke Doty also saw action.

The Seahawks also filled the absence of four-year starting running back Brandon Sinclair, as Keyonte Sessions broke a long TD run out of the “Wildhawk” formation. The Myrtle Beach defense turned in a strong showing against the Class 3A Blue Jackets.

* Carolina Forest 28, Waccamaw 0: The disparity in classification between the 5A Panthers and 3A Warriors was evident as Carolina Forest dominated from start to finish.

Panthers quarterback Matt Beale threw a pair of touchdown passes – a short one to Damon McDowell and a long one to Ismael Garcia – and standout running back Dyverse Simmons rushed for a score in the lopsided affair. Carolina Forest’s defense prevented the Warriors from threatening.

* Green Sea Floyds 8, St. James 0: The Sharks suffered a surprising shutout at the hands of the Trojans, who kept the St. James offense on the sidelines for most of the night.

GSF running back Wyatt Upchurch scored the game’s lone TD on a 10-yard run, and he had another long TD run erased by a penalty. The Sharks were dominated in time of possession and total yards by the Trojans.

* Socastee 7, Loris 7: The first game of the night looked like it, with both teams committing turnovers and mistakes. The Braves had snap issues that set up the Lions’ lone score, but they managed to tie it up on a Hunter Illing to Devin Stamp TD pass. The game went unsettled overtime.

The CNB Kickoff Classic was a final tuneup for local teams that kick off the regular season next weekend. Carolina Forest, Conway, Socastee, North Myrtle Beach and St. James open the season Friday, followed by Myrtle Beach hosting Byrnes on Saturday.
