At the Chief Sealth International High School homecoming game Friday night, there were entrances …
… and there were ENTRANCES:
The all-new Sammy the Seahawk debuted. Even posed for a photo with principal Chris Kinsey:
Sammy’s appearance was planned. Not so sure about this one:
Back to the entrances:
And even the choir:
The final score from Friday night’s Sealth vs. Nathan Hale game at Southwest Athletic Complex was Hale 43, Sealth 23, as we noted here in a quick roundup last night.
But since it was homecoming, the football was just part of the spectacle. More photos – including field action – ahead:
Here’s Vinny Wilson rushing for yardage against Hale:
Sealth’s Trey Brown, reaching for the pass with coverage by Hale’s Miles Quick:
Sealth’s Marquis Keenan, jumping to block the Raiders’ punt.
Sealth quarterback Max Sarver was a major target for Hale:
The Raiders’ QB Aaron Mandell was a challenge for the Seahawks – he was responsible for 18 of the 36 points Hale put up in the first quarter. Here’s Chief Sealth’s Larry Mao, getting a hold of Mandell:
At halftime, the score was 36-0, Hale. But the band played on …
… and the cheerleaders cheered:
The defense stepped things up:
Meantime, Sammy the Seahawk remained eagle-eyed … and a comeback brewed.
In the 4th quarter, Wilson picked up two touchdowns in two minutes:
Something to really cheer about:
Other moments – Sealth’s Marquis Keenan and Andrew Leota, picking up a fumble:
Jake Eddy broke a tackle from the Raiders’ Aiden Gold:
Back on the sidelines, a hug for Sealth cheerleader Lisa Lam:
And now, Sealth looks ahead to the Huling Bowl at Southwest Athletic Complex next Friday night – the traditional crosstown challenge vs. West Seattle High School, 7 pm.
