No. 4 Seahawks light up scoreboard, beat Braves

The No. 4-ranked Myrtle Beach football team celebrated Neon Night before a brightly clad crowd by lighting up the scoreboard to the tune of a 63-20 victory over Socastee on Friday at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

The Seahawks (3-0) scored four touchdowns in the first quarter alone to jump on top of the Braves (1-2) early. Quarterback Luke Doty threw TD tosses to Chunk Grissett and Wyatt Roache, and Jermani Green scored a rushing TD to give Myrtle Beach a 21-0 lead just 6 minutes into the contest.

After Socastee finally got on the scoreboard on a 1-yard TD dive by Seth McKinney, Doty threw his third TD pass of the game to Da’Rom Finkley for a 28-7 lead at the end of the first period. McKinney connected with JJ Jones to cut the deficit to 28-13, but Green capped the first half with his second rushing TD of the game for a 35-13 lead at intermission.

Myrtle Beach’s Zyon Knox found the end zone to start the third period, but Socastee kept it interesting with a fake punt that saw speedster Kenney Solomon break a 76-yard TD run. But the Seahawks responded by returning the ensuing kickoff 70 yards and Salim Sessions returned a fumble 60 yards to paydirt to put the game on ice at 56-20. Myrtle Beach’s Rayshad Feaster capped the scoring with a 27-yard TD.

Doty, who threw three interceptions in last year’s loss to the Braves, turned in a near-perfect performance. He completed 15 of 15 for 248 yards and three TDs, as well as rushing for 68 yards. Green had 13 carries for 122 yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns to lead the Seahawks’ ground attack.

Myrtle Beach hosts Carolina Forest next Friday.
