Seahawks hang on to edge Trojans

First win of regular season for Seaquam

The Seaquam Seahawks earned their first regular season win Saturday in North Delta, defeating the Hugh Boyd Trojans 20-18 in a B.C High School Football Association game.

The Seahawks came from behind in the Senior AA Southern Conference contest, trailing 12-0 in the third quarter before the offense got on track to score three majors in the final 20 minutes of play.

Mark Lego got Seaquam on the scoreboard with a 72-yard touchdown run on the first series of the second half. Quarterback Adam Dobie threw a touchdown pass to Lego, and ran for one himself. Dobie also tossed a pass from Keegan Lensink for a two-point convert, a score that was the difference in the game.

Dobie completed 14 of 26 pass attempts for 217 yards. Lensink caught six of those passes for 82 yards.

Lego ran for 126 yards on 17 carries, and had two receptions for another 74 yards. But his biggest play was on defense. With Seaquam ahead 20-12, the Trojans scored a major and then went for a two-point conversion to tie the game. Lego caught the Hugh Boyd runner in the backfield, preserving the Seahawks lead.

Linebacker Tony Kee led the Seahawks defense with 13 tackles. Other standouts on defense included Jay Singh with nine tackles, Lensink with seven tackles and a fumble recovery, and Ryland Hood and Cory Hudson with five tackles each.

Now at 1-1 (won-lost) in league play, Seaquam will visit the Holy Cross Crusaders Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Surrey school. The Crusaders lost 21-15 to the Belmont Bulldogs in Victoria last week, a result that left both teams with 2-1 records.
