Michael Nash Memorial: MB girls top Socastee for third

mbgsoc-6socWhile the Myrtle Beach High girls basketball team was winning the Lower State Championship Game on Friday night, the Lady Seahawks soccer squad was kicking off the season shorthanded (make that short-footed) in the Michael Nash Memorial Tournament at the North Myrtle Beach Sports and Rec Complex.

With five players still on the hardwood instead of the pitch, the Lady Seahawks suffered a tough 2-1 loss to Waccamaw and posted a 2-1 record in pool play to settle for the consolation game against rival Socastee. With reinforcements coming to the rescue Saturday, Myrtle Beach rolled to a 5-1 victory over the Lady Braves to claim third place in the 10-team tournament.

Myrtle Beach sophomore Tristan Gordon posted a hat trick and freshman Abigail Gonzalez scored a pair of goals to lead the Lady Seahawks to the win. Myrtle Beach defeated Conway 8-0 on Friday before falling to Waccamaw. The Lady Seahawks also shut out Airport 10-0 in Saturday’s pool finale.

Local teams fared well in the annual soccer kickoff, with two other Grand Strand teams winning a pair of games each.
Socastee defeated Aynor 9-0 and West Florence 4-0 but lost to finalist Dreher 8-1; North Myrtle Beach lost to Waccamaw 6-1 but bounced back to defeat Airport 2-0 and Conway 7-0.

Local boys teams got off to a good start Friday night as St. James shut out Conway 3-0 and North Myrtle Beach knocked off Aynor 5-1. The Sharks beat Georgetown 5-2 in Saturday’s early game as Garrett Greene, Riley Parker, Andreas Osuna, Andrew Broom and Chris Young each scored goals for St. James. The final round begins at noon Sunday.
