Senior Darren Joyner ran for 166 yards on 12 carries and scored twice, while junior Tequan (Tater) Moore had 115 yards on 11 carries and scored three times.

The Seahawks (3-0) rolled up 338 yards on 34 carries and 362 total yards and held South Creek (0-3) to 175 yards on 45 plays.

Xavier Ham led the Southside defense with eight tackles, while Jacob Taylor had five, including three for a loss.

Southside led 13-0 at halftime, but scored twice in the third quarter and once early in the fourth quarter for a 33-0 advantage.

South Creek scored for the first time this season with seven minutes left.

“They are much better than last year and competed until the end,” Seahawks coach Jeff Carrow said. “We executed well for the most part and our offensive line did a good job blocking on the edge for Tater and DJ. We had a better second half and put some points on the board. We’ll take the win and clean up some things for next week.”
