Crusaders can clinch first

Holy Cross to visit Seaquam Seahawks Saturday afternoon

The first high school football game of their conference schedule is huge for the Seaquam Seahawks. Lose it, and any hope of a first place finish is dashed.

Seaquam will host the Holy Cross Crusaders Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., and in an unusual scheduling quirk, the Seahawks’ first game in Senior AA Southern Conference play is the last on the Crusaders three-game schedule.

And should Holy Cross win, their perfect 3-0 record would nail down first place in the four-team group with the Seahawks still having two games to play.

The Crusaders crushed the Langley Saints 35-0 back on Oct. 7, then edged the Hugh Boyd Trojans 24-21 a week later. After Saturday’s game, Seaquam will face the Trojans in Richmond on Friday, Oct. 28, then complete their short three-game conference schedule with a home game Nov. 5 against Langley.

The Seahawks finished their non-conference schedule last Saturday on their home field, and topped the Windsor Dukes 43-28. Seaquam trailed 13-7 after one quarter, took a 14-13 lead by half time, and built it up to a 36-21 advantage after three quarters.

Mark Lego rushed for 288 yards and three touchdowns, with Taylor Northway scoring a pair of majors on a touchdown pass from Quarterback Adam Dobie and a kickoff return. Jarren Ralf, who led the Seahawks defence with eight tackles, scoring the sixth Seaquam touchdown. Outstanding two-way performances came from Cam Laidlaw, Mark Anglin, Tyler Massicotte, Martin Minkov, Jay Singh and Matthew Mahy.
