Seneca Valley Falls to Blake for First Time Ever
The Blake Bengals defeated Seneca Valley for the first time in the school’s history on Thursday night. The Bengals capitalized on two turnovers to beat the Screamin’ Eagles by a score of 31-6.
Blake got on the board early in the first quarter, after an interception led to a six yard touchdown run, followed by two-point conversion to give the Bengals a 8-0. This was followed by a 75-yard drive ending with another touchdown to extend the lead to 15-0 at halftime.
The second half began much like the first half, with an interception which lead to another Blake touchdown and two-point conversion. The Bengals extended the lead again to 23-0 in the third quarter.
Seneca Valley would avoid the shutout with a touchdown near the end of the third quarter to cut the lead to 23-6. Blake would stop a two-point attempt.
The Bengals capped the scoring with a six yard touchdown run and two-point conversion in the fourth quarter to set the final score at 31-6.
Blake improves to 4-1 on the season and will host winless Northwood, who lost on Thursday 41-0 to Magruder. Seneca Valley falls to 3-2 and will travel to Magruder on Friday. The Colonels are 1-4 after last week’s victory over Northwood.
