Socastee (6-0) at Myrtle Beach (6-0)
When | 7:30 p.m.
The game | This match-up between upstart Socastee and Myrtle Beach – a team riding a 20-game region winning streak – has been building for weeks. This one won’t be decided by histories, though. The Braves will likely have to have play their best game of the season to date and have the kind of opportunistic approach they did last week against North Myrtle Beach. The difference is that Myrtle Beach rarely has as many miscues for opponents to take advantage of. If that’s the case Friday night, Socastee quarterback Hunter Renfrow (641 yards rushing, 13 touchdowns) and running backs Daquon Brown (585, four) and Tommy Lazaroff (375, seven) are going to need to be at the top of their game in order to keep pace with a Seahawk team that has scored a combined 110 points in the last two games and is looking like the Myrtle Beach offense of old.
