Southside stumbles against North Duplin

Published 11:46pm Friday, August 17, 2012

Southside’s 2012 football season did not get off to the start coach DeWayne Kellum was hoping for as his Seahawks fell 48-14 to North Duplin on Friday.
Heading into the game Kellum knew his team was going to need to stop the Rebels option but on Friday the Seahawks had no answer for the North Duplin attack.
The Rebels ran all night on the Seahawks as they rushed 44 times for over 400 yards.
“We couldn’t stop the run all night,” Kellum said. “Basically, we got into a fight and we lost. They were just more physical than us.”
Turnovers also plagued Southside as they fumbled two kickoffs on Friday.
Offensively, Southside scored twice as Donshae Miller ran for a 20-yard touchdown, while Rokeem Miller ripped off a 35-yard TD run.
“We were able to tie the game back up at 14-14,” Kellum said. “But, (North Dublin) scored with about a minute to go in the first half and scored the first touchdown in the second half.”
The Seahawks will look to bounce back next Friday as they play their home opener against Creswell.
