Roundup: NMB, Socastee struggle in season debuts

socfoot-fumbleThe North Myrtle Beach High football team had hoped to use Friday night’s season opener with three-time defending Class 2A state champion Dillon as a measuring stick for the football program. As it turned out, the Chiefs found that they still have a long way to go.

After last year’s dominating 56-16 victory, the Wildcats basically duplicated the feat with a 54-14 win over the host Chiefs. Dillon jumped on the Chiefs out of the gate, building a 34-0 edge in the first half and coasting the rest of the way. Standout QB Avery McColl ran for the first three scores, and backup Da’Shawn Davis scored on a pair of runs.

The Chiefs finally got on the board before halftime on a touchdown pass from Ronnie Bass to Mike Gore, but it was too little too late as the Wildcats kept the game under control in the second half.

* West Brunswick 25, Socastee 13: The Braves’ new offense had trouble getting off the ground on a rainy Friday night, falling to visiting West Brunswick 25-13 in a disappointing season opener.

Socastee turned the ball over four times and failed to punch the ball in the end zone despite several deep drives. Following a defensive struggle that saw the Trojans clinging to a 6-0 halftime lead, they added two more scores in the second half for an 18-0 lead.

Socastee tried to come back in the fourth period. Quarterback Brandon Goswick connected with Taylor Karnap for a touchdown and rushed for another to cut the deficit to 18-13, but West Brunswick tacked on a late TD to put the game away.
