Seahawks snap skid against Spring Creek

Published 11:44pm Friday, September 20, 2013

Southside’s four-game losing streak came to an end on Friday as the Seahawks downed Spring Creek 20-7 to win its first game of the year.
Southside’s Isaiah Moore and Andrew Jones each ran for touchdowns in the win, while the defense held Spring Creek to seven points.
“It was a good win for the program,” Carrow said. “I’m excited for the guys and excited to get them on the right track. We should have won some ball games before now, but we’ll take a win right now.”
Southside held a 20-7 halftime lead, and the score would stay that way until the final buzzer.
“We played better than what we have,” Carrow said. “We still have to work on our tackling. We did have a lot of penalties on offense and on defense we bent but we didn’t break.”
The Seahawks also got a stellar night from running back Dylan Lewis, who rushed for 142 yards.
“We were able to run the ball,” Carrow said. “We did hurt ourselves with some penalties but we were able to answer that.”
The win was the first of the year for Southside and the first as a head coach for Carrow.
“It feels great to get the monkey off my back,” Carrow said. “But I’m not concerned about me, I’m concerned about our team and building on this win.”
