BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity football team started strong against Bennett at home on Senior Night last Friday, but the Clippers pulled away in the second half and sent the Seahawks to their sixth straight defeat.
The Seahawks entered the Senior Night game at home against Bennett riding a five-game losing streak after starting the season a promising 3-0. With fireworks scheduled for after the game and a big crowd on hand at home, the planets were lining up for the Seahawks to break the streak, and for a time it appeared Decatur might get back in the win column, but a series of ill-timed penalties and mistakes doomed the injury-riddled Seahawks in a season that has slipped away.
Bennett scored first and took an early lead, but Decatur bounced back with an 80-yard touchdown run by quarterback Darion McKenzie. After a Bennett field goal regained the lead for the Clippers, McKenzie broke off another 24-yard touchdown run to put the Seahawks back on top.
However, two touchdowns in the first half was all the Seahawks could muster in the game after Bennett made some adjustments and shut down Decatur’s offense in the second half. Meanwhile, the Clippers rode a handful of mistakes and penalties by the Seahawks to the 27-14 win. Decatur, now 3-6, closes out the 2015 campaign with the annual season-finale against Snow Hill on the road this year on Friday.
