Soccer at the Beach has local, international flavor

mbsoc-headersocThe 2014 Soccer at the Beach tournament will have a local and international flavor when it kicks off Friday at the Pepper Geddings Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach.

One of the upstart tournament’s goals is to attract top teams from around the state and beyond, and this year it didn’t have to look very far. The boys and girls fields include Myrtle Beach, Socastee and St. James, all of which are ranked in the top 15 in the Class 3A rankings.

On the boys side, St. James is ranked No. 8 in the state, Socastee is No. 11 and Myrtle Beach is No. 12. For the girls, Socastee is No. 11, St. James is No. 13 and Myrtle Beach is No 14.

“In the boys bracket we have six teams that were ranked in the preseason in their respective classifications,” said Myrtle Beach coach and tournament organizer Jason Himmelsbach. “It’s a good mix of strong local teams with an influx of talent from the Charleston area and even Canada. I think any of the teams have a great shot to take home the tourney title.”

Other local participants in both the boys and girls division include Carolina Forest, Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach. Also competing in both divisions is East Chatham Kent from Ontario, Canada. Other boys teams include state powers Hanahan and Fort Dorchester.

Games will be played at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium and Ashley Booth Field beginning at 4:30 p.m. Friday with a local showdown between Myrtle Beach and Christian Academy on the boys side and an intrastate matchup between Socastee and Chatham Kent on the girls side.

Matches run throughout Friday night and all day Saturday, and a team dinner and pre-championship press conference will be held at Capriz Italian Feast at Broadway at the Beach on Saturday night. The boys and girls title games and consolation matches will be held at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Sunday.
