Seneca Valley’s Defense Leads to Eighth Straight Win
The Seneca Valley offense may have scored all but one of the touchdowns in Friday night’s 49-7 drubbing of the Blake Bengals, but they owe many of those touchdowns to the strong play of their defensive secondary. The Screaming Eagles defense had five interceptions in the game, most of which set up the offense with a short field for a touchdown, and one went for a pick-six.
Seneca Valley’s defense set the tone on the first series, after a 30-yard pass play which had the Bengals, who entered this game with a 2-5 record, feeling good about their prospects against the unbeaten team from Germantown. However, Seneca shut down the drive and forced a punt. But the Blake defense held quarterback Petey Gaskins and the Seneca offense to a three-and-out, and Coach Fred Kim decided to play the field position game and punted the ball giving Blake possession deep in their own territory.
