The game was already 27-0 by halftime, by the way. But backtracking to the start of play:
Starting with recovering a fumble (photo above) for the first score of the game, it was the defense who managed to hold Franklin to a single touchdown- a run back of the second-half kickoff. Among the Sealth players who scored TDs, #5 Alloney Burris:
And #23 Czai Terrell:
Though a consistent ground game put up most of the points, Sealth’s passing game had some major gains against Franklin. #12 Weston Reed passed to #3 Jalonzo Smallwood for one of the Seahawks’ TDs. Here’s Reed in another play, with #30 Heriberto DeLuna:
In addition to the homecoming revelry, the night also brought birthday wishes for #59 Sam Tino:
This was the season’s second win for the Seahawks and head coach Simon Iniguez.
A road game is next up for Sealth, vs. Ingraham, 7 pm Friday at Northwest Athletic Complex.
