Georgetown watched from afar last November and December as Myrtle Beach made a run to the Class AAA state title.
And the Bulldogs knew how close they were to shifting the classes’ postseason landscape.
It was Week 9, and Georgetown’s trip to Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium had plenty on the line for both teams. The Seahawks eventually won when Drayton Arnold’s 28-yard touchdown pass to Kelton Greene put Myrtle Beach up 17-10 with just 21 seconds left on the clock.
It was the type of win that boosted Mickey Wilson’s team to the state title, and it virtually booted the Bulldogs from playoff contention.
