Holy Cross Crusader defender Rocky Shah tries to slow down ballcarrier Mark Lego of the Seaquam Seahawks during a high school football game at Holy Cross high school Saturday.

Lego leads Seahawks

Seaquam running back scores five touchdowns in win over Holy Cross

Four unanswered second half touchdowns lifted the Seaquam Seahawks to a 35-7 win over the Holy Cross Crusaders in a B.C. High School football Association Senior AA Southern Conference game.

Mark Lego scored on a 65-yard run to put Seaquam up 7-0, but the Crusaders rallied with two touchdowns and a field goal for a 10-point lead by the half.

Lego ran for two more touchdowns in the second half, caught a four-yard pass for another, and added his fifth major of the game on a 47-yard kick return.

Gabe Pamintuan had eight tackles to lead the defense, with Keegan Lensink making seven tackles and recovering a fumble. Jay Singh also had seven tackles.

Seaquam improved to 2-1 (won-lost) and is tied for second place in the Southern Conference. Holy Cross fell to fourth place at 2-2.

Both teams will play on the road Saturday, with Seaquam facing the 0-3 Eric Hamber Griffins and the Crusaders in Tsawwassen for a match with the 3-0 South Delta Sun Devils.

In Senior AA play, the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers trounced the Notre Dame Jugglers 41-13 in Burnaby last Friday night.

The Panthers are one of three teams tied for first place in the Eastern Conference with 3-1 records, and close out the season with two games against each of the other co-leaders.

They host the St. Thomas More Knights Friday at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow (Friday) at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, then visit the W.J. Mouat Hawks the following Friday (Nov. 2) in Abbotsford.
