Seahawks win Fossil BowlPublished 11:20pm Friday, August 31, 2012
Two long Rokeem Miller touchdown runs, coupled with a strong defensive effort allowed Southside to take a 22-8 win over Pamlico in the Fossil Bowl on Friday night.
The win was the second in a row for the Seahawks and improved their record to 2-1.
Southside committed a slew of turnovers during the game and afterwards coach DeWayne Kellum said he was happy to walk away with a victory.
“Any time we get a win right now, we’ll take it,” Kellum said. “We turned over the ball five times on fumbles.”
Miller led the offensive attack as he rushed for TD runs of 65 and 67, while his little brother, wing back Donshae Miller, took a handoff and fired a scoring strike to split end Aaron Redmond.
The victory over Pamlico (0-3) wraps up a solid week for the Seahawks’ defense as it pitched a shutout in the team’s win over Creswell on Monday and surrendered only eight points to the Hurricanes on Friday night.
“We had some defensive linemen that have had a really good week,” Kellum said. “Corey Ginn, Cedric McCabe and Darin Tatum each played well and linebacker Jonnie Pender had 11 solo tackles.”
The Seahawks will be back in action next week when it hosts Midway.
