NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — Delonzo Williams and Brandon Moore have become the thunder and lightning to the North Myrtle Beach offense so far this season. The duo combined for 264 yards rushing in the Chiefs’ second win of the season, a 21-7 victory over West Brunswick (N.C.).
“This was big for us,” North Myrtle Beach coach Perry Woolbright said, “especially going into an off week. These kids know that they can win the close games and that bodes well for their confidence because not all your games are going to be blow outs.”
Williams finished the night with 23 carries and 158 yards and two touchdowns. He put the first score on the board for the Chiefs in the second quarter to tie the game. Williams then put North Myrtle Beach ahead in the fourth with a 25 yard run over the left side of the defense.
Moore had eight carries for 106 yards and a touchdown. His score put an exclamation point on the Chiefs’ win when he scampered 49 yards to give them a 14-point lead.
“Both of the backs had great games,” Woolbright said of his tandem. “Everyone knows about Delonzo but Brandon was able to step in tonight and ran the ball hard for us.”
