High School Football

Area’s Best (Oct. 5)

Here are the top five teams in the Grand Strand area as ranked by The Sun News’ Ian Guerin:

1. Myrtle Beach

• Seahawks’ toughest region test comes Friday night at home against Socastee.

2. Socastee

• Win over Myrtle Beach would be monumental for upstart Braves.

3. Carvers Bay

• Hard to think there’s a better Region VII-A team than the Bears right now.

4. Georgetown

• Bulldogs could be one of two remaining 2-0 teams in Region VII-AAA after this week.

5. Loris

• That 56-0 victory over Marion is officially what we call a bounce-back game.
