BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity football team lost another tough one last week, falling to Bennett, 55-41, at Wicomico County Stadium on Friday to drop to 1-7 on the season.
The Seahawks went back and forth with the Clippers for over three quarters in a shootout that tied at 41-41 late in the game. Bennett pooled it out in the end on two great plays by Loma Thomas, one on either end of the field.
With 1:41 remaining in the game, Thomas punched it in from two yards out to put Bennett ahead, 48-41. On the Seahawks’ next possession, Thomas picked off a tip screen pass and returned it 22 yards for a clinching score and the Clippers held on to win 55-41.
The Seahawks have lost tight, low-scoring games and have also lost high-scoring shootouts. While they have been in nearly every game this season, they have only been able to put all elements of the game together on one occasion, a 31-26 win over North Caroline back on October 10.
Senior quarterback Justin Meekins continued to be a bright spot for the Seahawks in the loss to Bennett. Meekins ran for 96 yards and passed for 173 more. He threw three touchdown passes including two to R.J. Hayman and one to Dontae Baines.
