Socastee offense steamrolls over pesky West Brunswick

After having to wait out a rain postponement on Friday, the Braves were ready to roll from the opening kickoff in Saturday’s 35-28 victory over host West Brunswick (NC).

Socastee scored touchdowns on its first four offensive possessions and held off the pesky Trojans the rest of the way to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Socastee running back Delano Williams broke a 40-yard touchdown run and junior quarterback Hunter Renfrow capped the ensuing drive with a 3-yard TD dive.

The Trojans answered the Braves’ first two scores with TD drives of their own, but the Braves carried a 28-14 lead into the locker room after Renfrow connected with Tommy Lazaroff for a 45-yard score and Daquon Brown broke an 81-yard TD run just before halftime.

West Brunswick took its opening drive of the second half 85 yards to paydirt, but Brown scored his second touchdown of the game from 5-yards out to keep it a two-TD margin.

West Brunswick’s Markel Jones tallied his third touchdown of the game to open the final period with a 23-yard TD jaunt to close the Trojans back within a touchdown of the lead with 10 minutes remaining.

That’s when the Braves’ triple-option offense flexed its muscle, eating up yards and the clock to drive deep in Trojans’ territory. Socastee fumbled shy of the goalline but left West Brunswick with less than 2 minute and the length of the field to tie it. The Socastee defense held firm and stopped the Trojans on fourth down to seal the victory.
