9:44 PM: At Southwest Athletic Complex, the Chief Sealth International High School Seahawks just scored their first football win of the year, 27-24 over the visiting Nathan Hale Raiders. CSIHS is now 1-1. Photos and details later!
ADDED 11:45 PM: Sealth’s #11 Bishop Jackson was a standout in the victory, running in two of the Seahawks’ touchdowns as well as making some key defensive moves in the fourth quarter, holding off Hale to secure the win.
First Sealth TD was scored with 5:56 to go in the first half by #3, Zach Cunningham:
Jackson’s first TD followed less than a minute and a half later, so the Seahawks went into the locker room at halftime with the lead, 12-8.
Two Hale touchdowns in the third quarter put the Raiders ahead 24-12, but Sealth mustered a comeback. The quarter ended with a huge TD run by #21 Talen Thomas.
Then Jackson’s second TD, with 8:34 to go in the game, and a 2-point conversion, gave Chief Sealth the lead for good, 27-24.
Next week, Head Coach Ted Rodriguez and the Seahawks will see if they can win the Huling Bowl trophy for a third consecutive year.
The annual crosstown clash vs. West Seattle High School (0-2) is set for 7 pm September 20th at SWAC.
