Sage Roberts and Seahawks shoot down Bucks

"The pass looked pretty good and we played good defense," he said. "We gave up a couple of home run balls, but in the end we got more stops than they did."

The two "home-run" balls Tisa is referring to came late in the third and the start of the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks were up 38-8, when the Bozeman Bucks scored on an 89-yard pass play. Quarterback Bubba Thompson hit a wide-open David Elmore for an 89-yard dash to the end zone. Matthew Oberley kicked in the point after for a 39-15 game with 49 seconds to play in the third.

South Walton turned around and answered in 20 seconds with Ortner putting the ball up on the first play from scrimmage to Smith who took it for a 55-yard score. Austin Garofalo kicked in the point after for a 46-15 mark.

Bozeman came right back in three plays with Thompson connecting with Elmore again, this time for a 76-yard TD strike. The point after kick was no good. Thompson finished the night completing five of 15 for 195 yards. He also scored on a 2-yard run for the Bucks in the first quarter.

The Bucks had 99 yards on the ground with David McKee picking up 73 yards in 10 carries.

Starting from their own 35-yard line, South Walton pushed the ball down the field to the 10-yard line, then scored one last time. On fourth down, freshman kicker Garofalo booted in a 30-yard field goal, his second of the night. He kicked a 22 yarder in the first quarter.
