The chants from the student section might have been a little far-fetched — May River won’t be matching up with any SEC teams — but the Sharks have shown they have no intention of taking a step back after last season’s breakout.
Ahmad Green threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more score, and Melik Frost had another big game on the ground as the Sharks rolled to a 46-10 home win over Hilton Head High on Friday.
The Sharks were in control from the start, building a 23-0 lead by the 9:08 mark of the second quarter, at which point the student section made an informal request to schedule Bama. It was 26-0 by the time May River’s defense allowed a first down.
May River ran the ball at will in the first half, as Rod Grant, Green, and Frost each found the end zone and Bryce Summers booted two field goals en route to a 26-0 lead with 7:17 left in the half. Green added a 46-yard scamper to make it 33-0 at halftime.
The Seahawks had more success moving the ball in the second half and got on the board with Jacob Weaver’s 22-yard field goal in the third quarter. Hilton Head finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter, when Gaston Moore connected with Dean Seelbach for a 27-yard touchdown strike.
But the Sharks tacked on two fourth-quarter scores, on Green’s 9-yard toss to Joseph Tapscott and a 78-yard bomb to Melvin Livermon with just over two minutes left in the game.
May River (2-0) hosts Colleton County next Friday, while Hilton Head High (1-2) looks to snap a two-game skid with a home game against Ridgeland-Hardeeville.
