Seneca Valley Beats Churchill 50-0
It was Miltary Appreciation Night at Seneca Valley on Friday as the Screaming Eagles hosted the Churchill Bulldogs, and the Eagles took the opening kickoff and marched down the field with precision that any military man would appreciate on their way to a 50-0 victory
Seneca Valley’s senior quarterback Clarence “Petey” Gaskins came out throwing the ball from the start going 4-for-six on the first drive with passes to Antonio Fox and Dawayne Kelley. Gaskins also ran the ball on a quarterback keeper that set the Eagles with a first down on the Bulldogs 14 yard-line.
At that point, Seneca put the ball into junior running back Adrian Feliz-Platt’s hands, who ran it down the six and scored the first of his four touchdowns on the night.
The Bulldogs would start the next possession at their 11 yard-line and go three and out and punt. However, the punt would be shanked and set up Seneca Valley with the ball the Churchill 35 yard-line.
However, the Eagles would not capitalize. Gaskins would drop back to pass, and feeling pressure from Churchill’s Nicky Stanton would throw a hurried pass that was picked off by Churchill’s junior defensive back Zawadi Bryant at the 10 yard-line. Bryant would return the ball to the 26-yard-line where he took a punishing hit and was knocked out of the game with a knee injury.
After two series, it became apparent that the Seneca Valley defense would be too much for Churchill’s offensive attack. Seneca kept Churchill’s standout junior running back Andrew Zuckerman in check almost all night.
