HSGBB: Supporting cast leads Seahawks past Sharks

HSGBB: Supporting cast leads Seahawks past Sharks

Hilton Head High girls basketball landed the first blow in its back-to-back series with May River on Tuesday, using a balanced offensive effort and stifling defense to claim a 40-28 road win that buoys their playoff hopes.

The Sharks will get another shot at the Seahawks on Wednesday at The Nest, but they’ll need a better showing at the offensive end after being limited to single digits in three of four periods in the first meeting.

The Seahawks get a lot of credit for that, as their defense limited the good looks for May River star Morgan Scott, holding her to a respectable 10 points and seven rebounds, and taking their chances with the Sharks’ young guards beating them.

May River’s Casey Laing did an excellent job of minimizing the damage from Seahawks star Lynda Young, holding the sophomore forward scoreless in the first half, but Young came alive to score all nine of her points in the third quarter as Hilton Head turned a two-point halftime lead into a nine-point advantage. 

And Hilton Head’s supporting cast stepped up. Gianna Timko scored 10 points, and point guard Deja Godsun finished with eight points and nine rebounds to help lead the Seahawks to a big win and put them in a position to take over third place in the region standings if they can complete the sweep.

The Seahawks (8-11, 3-5) host the Sharks (6-12, 2-7) on Wednesday.
