No. 4 Seahawks storm past Wilson after long rain delay

The Myrtle Beach Seahawks couldn’t wait for Friday night’s game to kick off so they could get the bad taste of last week’s loss to Conway out of their mouths.

They didn’t have to wait long – 19 seconds, to be exact.
Myrtle Beach’s Chocolate Wilson took the opening kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown to spark the Seahawks’ 31-6 victory over Wilson at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

Myrtle Beach jumped out to the quick 7-0 lead but the Seahawks (5-1, 1-0 Region VIII-AAA) then had to wait through a one-hour rain delay before finishing off the Tigers (3-3, 0-1).

The Tigers took advantage of the delay to get on the scoreboard with just 10 seconds left before halftime on 1-yard quarterback sneak by Brandon King, but the PAT failed and the Seahawks held a 7-6 lead at the half.

But the second half was all Seahawks. “We came back out in second half and got after it a little bit,” said Myrtle Beach coach Mickey Wilson. “I told the guys at halftime that this was the first region game and it is so important.”

His players paid attention. Co-quarterback Tyler Keane hit receiver Daquarius Wilson with a 35-yard TD pass to give Myrtle Beach a 14-6 lead, then Myrtle Beach got a 40-yard field goal by Max Huggins to make it 17-6.

The Myrtle Beach defense also got into the scoring act. Kerry Chestnut forced a fumble and  scooped up, rumbling 22 yards to the end zone to make it 24-6. The Seahawks added another late TD off an interception of King.

Myrtle Beach’s Trell Harrell’s 10-yard TD run capped the scoring and the victory to help the Seahawks get back on the winning track following last week’s 21-12 loss to Conway snapped their 17-game winning streak.

Despite the loss, Wilson has been reminding his players that it’s not too late for his team, ranked No. 4 in Class AAA, that it’s not too late to reach the squad’s ultimate goal – to repeat as state champs.

“I feel were not a great football team yet, but not sure you want to be a great football team right now. You want to be a great football in November.”

The Seahawks travel to rival Socastee next week.
