Chris Sokoloski/South Strand News Israel Davis was 10-for-17 passing for 141 yards against Johnsonville on Aug. 29. The Bears lost 21-14.

Carvers Bay struggled with turnovers and lost to Johnsonville 21-14 on Aug. 29.

“We knew Johnsonville was good,” said Bears coach James “Nate” Thompson. “They’re bigger, they’re stronger and they’re a little bit faster.”

Carvers Bay turned the ball over four times in the first half and was down 14-0 before Israel Davis scored on a long punt return to cut the lead to 14-6 with about two minutes left before halftime.

Neither team scored in the third quarter and then Johnsonville extended its lead to 21-6 as the fourth quarter began.

The Bears drove down the field as the clock was winding down and Edjuan Judge hit Tyrell Richard from 39 yards out with 24.9 seconds left. With the two-point converson, Carvers Bay was within seven points.

“It gives up hope that we can score at any time,” Davis said. “Our kids came out and they could have folded the tent at 21-6,” Thompson said. “But they’re resilient and I saw that.”

The Bears couldn’t execute the onside kick and Johnsonville ran out the clock.

Davis had 29 yards rushing

and was 10-for-17 passing for 141 yards with four interceptions.

Calvin Miller had 18 yards rushing and 32 yards receiving, and Keon Hazel had 74 yards receiving.

“We made a lot of mistakes that we can correct,” Thompson said. “That’s the major thing. And our kids didn’t give up.”

Carvers Bay travels to Pawleys Island to take on Waccamaw on Sept. 5.

“Waccamaw is a pretty good team,” Thompson said. “These guys [have] to shake the bugs out and be ready to play. … We can’t sit there and lick our wounds. We’ve got to put a little Band-Aid on and keep moving.”

“Everybody’s got to be at practice and we’ve just got to get better,” Davis said. “Continue to learn and get better on defense and offense.”
