The first-place South Delta Sun Devils proved too much for the Seaquam Seahawks in their first game of their Senior AA Southern Conference high school football schedule.
South Delta improved to 3-0 (won-lost) with a 40-21 victory over the Seahawks last Saturday afternoon at Seaquam Secondary in North Delta, a score that ’Hawks head coach Jerry Mulliss said should have been closer.
“South Delta is a very talented and veteran football team,” said Mulliss. “However, giving them full credit for the win, we made them look pretty good at times. Way too many missed tackles once again.”
Miscues that cost the Seahawks included a fumble while at the South Delta 20 yard-line, and several dropped passes.
Trailing 27-0 at halftime, Seaquam got a pair of rushing touchdowns from Mark Lego and one from Keegan Lensink on a 15-yard pass from Adam Dobie.
Lego was good for more than 200 yards of net offense, running for 187 yards and receiving for another 43.
The Seahawks host the Hugh Boyd Trojans Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Seaquam Secondary.
The Trojans have lost the first two games on their schedule, dropping a 21-20 decision to the Holy Cross Crusaders last Friday in Richmond.
The Crusaders, off to a 2-0 start to their Southern Conference schedule, will visit the Belmont Bulldogs in Victoria Saturday.
– In a Senior AAA game Friday in Cloverdale, the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers fell 13-0 to the Terry Fox Ravens in a battle of two Eastern Conference rivals.
The Ravens moved to the top of the standings with two wins in as many games, while Lord Tweedsmuir has a win and a loss.
The Panthers will visit the Centennial Centaurs in Coquitlam tomorrow (Friday) night. The Centaurs have won their only league game.
