On this rainy night in the shadow of the Space Needle, Chief Sealth International High School‘s varsity-football win streak ended at six games. Their rematch with Roosevelt High School at Memorial Stadium downtown tonight did not go the way last week’s Southwest Athletic Complex game against the Rough Riders went; final score was Roosevelt 42, Chief Sealth 25.
ADDED SUNDAY: Photos and toplines. The TDs were all by #8 Dontae McMillan:
The ball turned over three times in first three minutes of the game. But both teams settled down a bit and McMillan’s first big TD run came at 6:36 to go in the first quarter. Roosevelt answered four minutes later; McMillan’s second TD was with less than a minute to go in the first, which ended with Sealth ahead 12-7. But that was the last time Sealth held the lead.
Head coach Ted Rodriguez‘s team couldn’t stop Roosevelt from adding two TDs before halftime, but did add another of their own, so it was 21-18 Roosevelt at the half.
The Seahawks had to go without McMillan twice in the second half; both times, though, while he limped off the field, he was back in before long. Roosevelt, however, began to pull away, and had a 42-18 lead before McMillan got one last TD at 1:32 to go in the game, which concluded 42-25.
