South snaps losing streak, tops North 23-0

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH - After a scoreless first half, the South's offense woke up and rode the running game to a win on Saturday at Doug Shaw Stadium by a final for 23-0. After a first half that featured a lot of defense, with interceptions from Lamar's Akeem Peoples and Timberland's Roderick McCray, the South broke out in the first possession of the third quarter. Summerville's Jerod Tucker took a handoff and ran 72 yards downfield for the touchdown. Myrtle Beach High's Max Huggins tacked on an extra point to make it 7-0 South.

After interceptions on two consecutive plays, the North retained possession of the ball later in the third, but backed up inside its own five. Dillon's Hishawn Blue and Lake View's Darius Leonard teamed up to sack North quarterback Kylen Binn in the endzone for a safety to make it 9-0.

On the ensuing kick, DeAndre Schoultz of the South fielded and ran the ball back all the way to the North's four yard line. Fort Dorchester High product Daitwan Commodore then added short touchdown run and the South built a 16-0 advantage. Commodore tacked on a 15 yard touchdown run later to put the game on ice, and help hand the South a 23-0 victory.

The North team MVPs was Newberry wide receiver Tovaris Cureton on the offensive side, and the defensive MVP was Simeon Byrd. On the South team, Commodore was named the offensive MVP and Lake View's Darius Leonard picked up defensive MVP honors.
