Myrtle Beach shutting out a region opponent was exactly what the rest of the Seahawks’ remaining teams didn’t want to see.
It’s not bad enough that, even with inclement weather, Mickey Wilson’s offense is as dynamic any other squad in Class AAA - there are only five teams averaging more points per game. Now, there’s a group of budding defensive stars to boot.
It’s not simply a matter of playing a lesser opponent, either.
Myrtle Beach’s shutout of Wilson came after the team tinkered with a few key defensive changes and got a primary member of the line back from injury. In Friday’s Sun News Game of the Week, the Seahawks will have an opportunity to prove it last week’s performance was a fluke, or a sign of greater things to come.
