In the first few seconds of the game, both teams fumbled the ball away, but the Seahawks capitalized with a quick score to Roberts.

On North Bay's second possession, South Walton's Zach Reese picked off a Buc pass at the 34-yard line. The Seahawks put together a 15-play drive for the score with Ortner connecting with Ciurleo for a 14-yard strike.

The Buccaneers answered with a big play of their own. Smith hit Garrison Baker on the right side and he headed down the sideline for a 52-yard scamper to the end zone. Brayden Hardesty kicked in the point after for a 14-7 game.

In less than 2 minutes the Seahawks put six more points on the board. Ortner capped off a 10-play drive with a 13-yard completion to Roberts for the TD. Garofalo was good for the PAT.

In the second quarter, South Walton was on the move again when the Bucs knocked the ball loose with Devante Garland making the recovery. The Bucs got the ball down inside the 15 but were stopped by the Seahawks on a four-and-long.

South Walton took over on the 19 and went the distance, 81 yards in five plays and 58 seconds for the score. Anthony Gundrum scored the TD on a 7-yard run. The score at the half was 28-7.

To start the third, South Walton's Gundrum put a hit on the Buc's Richardson causing a fumble which Wesley Miller recovered for the Hawks. Two plays later, South Walton scored on 2-yard pass play from Ortner to Schaffer.
