Saturday’s area sports briefs | Socastee football holds on against West Brunswick

The Socastee High School football team got out a two-touchdown lead before hanging on to beat West Brunswick (N.C.) 35-28 on Saturday to improve to 2-0.

“Good to be 2-0, we have long ways to go,” Socastee coach Tim Renfrow said. “We had a lot of mistakes but it’s a good win for us.”

While Socastee has a pair of non-region wins on the road to open the season, Renfrow sees plenty of room for improvement.

“We’re very young on the offensive line and we need to tackle better and hold onto the ball better,” he said.

The Braves, coming off their first playoff victory last season, hope to continue their early success next week when they take on Lake City at home.

“[Getting to] 3-0 is the prospect; it’s the only thing they’re thinking about,” Renfrow said.
