Record Breaking Night for Platt as Seneca Mauls Magruder
Seneca Valley’s senior running back Adrian Platt broke the Maryland State record for the most rushing touchdowns in a game, scoring nine touchdowns in Friday night’s 69-14 victory over Magruder. Platt also broke the Maryland State record for most points by a single player with 54.
The Screaming Eagles scored 21 points on just seven plays from scrimmage in the first quarter. After receiving the opening kick-off, it took Platt and the Seneca offense just three plays and 34 seconds to score.
After a Magruder punt, Platt was in the endzone again just two plays later. He took a handoff from quarterback Zack Robinson and ran off tackle for a 65-yard touchdown to extend the Seneca Valley lead to 14-0.
While Platt scored nine touchdowns, he was not the only one to find the promised land in Friday night’s game. Seneca’s third touchdown came on a 70-yard pass play from senior quarterback Zack Robinson to Sal Sirleaf. Robinson found Sirleaf in the flat and Sirleaf out ran the Magruder defense to put the Eagles up 21-0, after running just seven offensive plays.
On the next Magruder possession, Seneca Valley’s Mohammed Jalloh step in front of a sophomore quarterback Michael Peterwas pass and returned it to the Magruder 22 yard line. Platt would have his third touchdown in the first quarter two plays later, and Seneca was up 28-0, and there was still 5:11 second in the first quarter.
