Top Three-Moore takes top spot with all-around performance
The Southside Seahawks took full advantage of being the only Beaufort County team in action Friday with a 44-16 rout at South Creek Friday. Northside lost, 49-7, to 2A Wallace-Rose Hill Thursday, while Washington and Pungo Christian Academy were idle.
- Tequon Moore-the Seahawks sophomore returned the opening kickoff 44 yards, which set up Kenjray Coffield’s touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, leading to a 38-0 lead after the first quarter. Moore scored three touchdowns, ran for 59 yards and had three tackles for loss among six tackles on defense.
- The Southside defense-The unit would have recorded its second shutout in three games, but South Creek scored twice late against the Seahawks younger defenders who needed the game experience. The starters held South Creek to 28 yards rushing on 25 carriers, recovered three fumbles and intercepted a pass.
- Mitch Godley-The Northside senior led the defense with 12 tackles and recorded a sack. He also ran for 59 yards against a tough Wallace-Rose Hill defense.
Best of the Rest-Northside: Marcus Clayton scored the only touchdown on a 60-yard run and made a spectacular leaping one-handed reception of a Keifer Boyd pass. Kasey Alligood and Carson Clinkscales had seven tackles each with one for a loss, while Briley Cooper had six with two for a loss.
Southside: Kenjray Coffield had 75 yards rushing on five carries with a 35-yard touchdown run. Jacob Taylor had six tackles with one for a loss, while Chris Fleming added a pair of tackles for loss.
Three teams are back in action Friday as Southside travels to Riverside, Northside hosts South Creek and Washington is at Northampton County.
