Southside returned from a two week break with a dominate performance on both sides of the ball in a 44-7 rout of Swansboro Friday night at home. That coupled with losses by Washington High School and Pungo Christian gave the Seahawks the top three spots. Northside had the night off.
- Kenjray Coffield-the Southside senior tailback ran for a career-high 234 yards on 13 carries, scored two touchdowns and intercepted a pass to help the Seahawks go 4-0. Coffield helped his team roll up 460 yards rushing on 45 carries. His longest run was a 56-yard scoring scamper in the first quarter.
- The ‘Hawks offensive line of Xavier Ham, James Main, Jake Jones, Tyon Warren, Elgin Stilley and tight end Shawn Gerard, who opened the holes for the backfield to run wild. The offense gained an average of 9.9 yards per play behind their effort.
- Manvonte DeLoach-the junior defensive back intercepted three passes out of the total of five, leading a Seahawks defense that had interceptions against three different quarterbacks and also recovered a fumble.
Best of the Rest: Southside-the defense recovered another fumble, giving it seven in four games with at least one in each game. The five interceptions against Swansboro makes seven as well for a total of 14 turnovers forced in the first four games. Senior Keywon Campbell ran for 86 yards on 10 carries, while Tequon (Tater) Moore had 87 yards on nine attempts. Jamie Corprew led the defense a pair of solo tackles and three assists, while rushing for 42 yards and a touchdown. Tight End Shawn Gerard caught Walker Hill’s only completion in three attempts for a 14 yard touchdown. Alex Moore also scored a touchdown.
Washington: Senior running back Terry Moore scored the Pam Pack’s only touchdown on a 35-yard run in the first quarter in the 26-7 home loss to West Craven in the conference opener. Moore finished with 67 yards on 11 carries. Junior Jonathan Richardson led the defense with nine solo tackles and 11 total and also recovered a fumble. Junior Koby Munday totaled 11 tackles, seven solo while Gabe Davis had 11 with seven solo.
