HSGBB: Bevan steps up to lead Sharks past Seahawks

Freshman point guard Ariana Bevan turned it her best performance yet at the varsity level to lead a balanced May River girls team to an impressive 41-28 home win over Region 7-4A rival Hilton Head High on Tuesday.

The young Sharks had been inconsistent in the early part of the season as they adjusted to life without All-State point guard Emma Peluso, but Bevan looked the part against the Seahawks, collecting eight points, four rebounds, two assists, and three steals.

Jordan Bigham matched Bevan with eight points and added eight rebounds and three blocks, sophomores Macey Dowe and Morgan Kronimus each added six points, and freshman Morgan Kinlaw-Scott contributed five points and 10 boards for the Sharks.

The Seahawks led 7-6 after the first quarter before May River got rolling and pulled out to a 22-15 halftime lead. Hilton Head High kept it close, trailing by just six heading into the fourth quarter, but the Sharks held the Seahawks without a field goal in the final period, and HHIHS went 2-for-12 at the foul line down the stretch.

Lynda Young scored 10 points, Chyna Fields added six, and Hope Dobbelaere had five for the Seahawks.
