Seahawks explode to rout Hilton Head Island in opener

With rainy and windy weather, Hilton Head Island had the perfect conditions to try to stop Myrtle Beach’s high-flying passing attack.

As it turned out, Mother Nature must be a Seahawks fan.

Reigning Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week Tyler Keane threw four touchdown passes and fellow quarterback C.J. Wilson ran for another as Myrtle Beach’s spread offense seemed immune to the weather.

The Seahawks’ defense and special teams combined for four touchdowns and a safety as Myrtle Beach rolled to a 64-16 victory in the first round of the Class AAA playoffs on Friday night at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

Myrtle Beach (10-1) wasted no time jumping on top, with Kerry Chestnut returning the opening kickoff 93 yards to paydirt. Hilton Head answered with a TD pass from Michael Julian to Adam Orshak to tie it at 7-all, but it was just enough to make the Seahawks mad.

Keane then threw three consecutive touchdown passes – two to wide receiver Tramond Wilson and another to Tyrone Cooper – as the Seahawks claimed a 28-7 advantage.

A blocked punt for a safety, Cooper’s weaving 38-yard TD run and another Keane TD pass to Jaquan Wilson put Myrtle Beach on top 44-7, and defensive tackle Trey Vivian intercepted a pass and rumbled 15 yards for a TD to make it a 51-7 lead at halftime.

Vincent Hoover scored on a 1-yard TD dive early in the third period to give the Seahawks the most points they have scored all season at 58. Myrtle Beach defeated North Myrtle Beach 56-7 last week.
Hilton Head capped a long drive with a 27-yard field goal by Weston Mott, but the Seahawks returned the ensuing kickoff for another TD as Kelton Green took it the distance for  64-10 advantage.

In a show of sportsmanship, Myrtle Beach allowed Hilton Head Island’s Chip Mullin, who plays football despite suffering from Down Syndrome, to score on a 75-yard TD run. The Seahawks followed him to the end zone to congratulate him.

Myrtle Beach will host Airport in the second round of the playoff next Friday.
