Twin brothers Trevor and Scott Wilson of Varnville played in the annual North-South Soccer Classic held recently in Anderson.
The boys’ match saw six of the contest’s seven goals scored in the first five and final five minutes of the match with plenty of end-to-end action in between. Keaton Hubbard of Eastside and Luke Williams from St. James each tallied two scores while Logan Shay (Blythewood) and the Wilson twins of Wade Hampton High School scored one a piece.
Scott assisted on Trevor’s goal. Along with Scott, Hesham Hikal of Burke, Alexis Jimenez of Bluffton, and Shay were all credited with assists for the South squad.
Shay and Williams served as co-captains for the South while Davis Hooten of Northwestern and Reel Wise of T.L. Hanna were co-captains for the North. Shay and Hubbard earned MVP recognition for their efforts.
The South outshot the North 15-6 and the teams combined for 11 corner kicks. In the first series sweep by either side since 2014, the South prevailed in the girls’ and boys’ matches, 1-0 and 5-2, respectively at T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson.
This was the third time that Yellow Jackets Memorial Stadium has hosted this event which celebrated its 30th consecutive year of recognizing 72 graduated high school senior soccer players and eight coaches. The North boys now lead the series 15-11-4 while the South girls hold a 10-8-4 advantage.
The Wilson brothers played soccer for Wade Hampton High School for six years on both the junior varsity and varsity teams. The twins began their soccer exploits with the Hampton-Varnville United Soccer Club. They also have played for Lowcounty Soccer Academy, Global Premier Soccer (GPS) Club, Mid-City Lions (an International Team from Minnesota), and the Walterboro Soccer Club (WSC). They were part of the WSC team that won the state championship in 2012.
They are the sons of Dewaine and Bonnie Wilson. Trevor plans to attend the University of South Carolina this fall while Scott will be off to Wofford College.
