Girls Soccer: Myrtle Beach stops Socastee in shootout

mbgsoc-pennyThe No. 5-ranked Myrtle Beach and No. 11 Socastee girls soccer teams met for the second time in five days on Thursday at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium, and this one went down to the wire.

Following a 1-all draw at the end of regulation and overtime, Myrtle Beach goalkeeper Gabby Moore made two key saves in the shootout to lift the Lady Seahawks (7-1 overall, 3-0 region) to a 2-1 win via a 3-1 edge in penalty kicks.

It was Myrtle Beach’s second win over the rival Lady Braves after defeating them 1-0 in the championship game of the Soccer at the Beach tournament. This time the Lady Seahawks had to rally from behind to win the more important contest that counts toward the region standings.

After a scoreless first half, Socastee (9-1-3, 1-1-1) got on the board first on a penalty kick by Margaret Scalise. But Myrtle Beach’s McKenzie Jones evened the score on a nice goal 15 minutes later and the match went into overtime and the shootout with the Lady Seahawks on the attack.

On Socastee’s PK in regulation, Scalise had caught Moore a bit flat-footed, so Myrtle Beach coaches gave her a bit of a refresher and pep talk on the sidelines before overtime just in case the game came down to PKs. The talk paid off as Moore delivered in the clutch.

Scalise fired high on her second attempt to start the shootout, and Jones put Myrtle Beach on top by converting her shot. Moore gave up her only OT score but bounced back with back-to-back deflections – one over the crossbar and the other with her foot. Myrtle Beach got PKs from Tori Zeltner and Temperance Russell to ice the win.

Myrtle Beach faces reigning region champion St. James on Tuesday while Socastee travels to Wilson.

* Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 5, Kings Academy 1: Mary Chandler Butler recorded her fifth hat trick of the season and Katya Durocher added a pair of goals to lead the Lady Saints past the Lady Lions.
