Post 17 travels to Goose Creek for Tuesday's series opener

Goose Creek defeated host Murrell’s Inlet, 10-5, Monday night and advanced to play Kershaw County in the second round of the American Legion state playoff series which opens tonight (Tuesday) at Goose Creek High School.

The second game of the best-of-five series continues Wednesday in a tentative 7:30 p.m. starting time at American Legion Park in Camden. Should Goose Creek rather start the games in Camden at an earlier time, the P-17 home games will be moved up to 7 p.m. That decision was to have been made Tuesday night when the two coaches met. (Check the C-I Website at for any time changes.)

This marks the second time in as many years in which Post 166 has met Kershaw County in the post-season. Last summer, Goose Creek defeated the locals, three games to one.

The winner of the series earns an automatic berth into the state American Legion Tournament which opens Friday, July 22 at Charleston Southern University. Should Goose Creek win this series, Post 17 will still have a chance to earn an at-large berth into the state tournament in next week’s play-in games(s), involving the three losing teams from the Lower State second round series.

Regardless of what happens this week, Goose Creek, as the host program, has an automatic spot in the eight-team state championship tournament.

Here is the schedule for this week’s games:


Game 1 – Tonight at Goose Creek (7 p.m.); Game 2 – Wednesday in Camden (tentatively, 7:30 p.m.); Game 3 – Thursday at Goose Creek (7 p.m.); Game 4 – (if necessary) Friday in Camden (tentatively, 7:30 p.m.); Game 5 – (if necessary) Saturday in Goose Creek (TBA)
