Hurricanes hammered by ’Hawks at Seaquam
The Seaquam Seahawks evened their non-conference B.C. High School football Association record at 2-2 (won-lost) Saturday afternoon, trouncing the Rick Hansen Hurricanes 33-6 at Seaquam Secondary.
The Seahawks wasted little time scoring enough points for the win, forcing a fumble on the opening kickoff on a hit by Taylor Northway to set up a seven-yard touchdown run by Jarren Ralf on the second play of the game.
Mark Lego rushed for 138 yard and three touchdowns, helping Seaquam to a 13-0 lead after one quarter and 20-0 at halftime. After Lego’s third score upped the difference to 26-6, Ralf caught a pass from Adam Dobie to complete the scoring.
Northway led all Seaquam players on defence with seven tackles, with Chris Hoegler making six.
