South Lakes Seahawks snuck into the playoffs this season after unfortunate COVID cases caused them to miss their last two regular-season games. The offense for the Seahawks struggled early and often as they didn’t put any points on the scoreboard. 

 

The first quarter brought some excitement early on as South Lakes was forced to punt but Chantilly muffed the kick as South Lakes regained possession. The rest of the first quarter was filled with punts from both teams. 

 

The second quarter brought the first and only score of the game as Avonte Lorminier scored a 27-yard rushing touchdown for Chantilly to take the lead 7-0. South Lakes struggled to move the ball into their opponent’s territory as they failed to score again. 

 

The third quarter was a quick one as each team drove down the field but ultimately neither could score including a missed field goal by Chantilly. Each punt mattered in the field position game as South lakes crossed the 50-yard line just a couple of times. 

The fourth and final quarter of the game came down to the wire. With less than a minute left, South Lakes was on Chantilly’s 40-yard line and this looked like the last shot to save their season. Unfortunately, South Lakes was stopped again and their season came to an end. 

 

South Lakes season comes to an abrupt stop as Chantilly moves on in a defensive battle. Chantilly will play Madison on Friday, April 16 in what is sure to be a great game. 

 

After starting the season with a loss, the Seahawks bounced back and won their next three games before having their last two games being postponed due to COVID-19, finishing the regular season at a record of 3-1. This was a great season for the Seahawks and a great sign of what they’ll be able to do next year!
