Seahawks football season got turned around by a touchdown in the last quarter. Despite some impressive tackles and the best efforts of defensive weapon #50 Howie Hubbard, the Seahawks were unable to hold the Eielson Ravens back for much of the game.

However, the offensive unit featuring #3 Seth Brewi, #2 Alex Pahno and #66 Christian Tofson combined for a play late in the game that put the Seahawks on the home field board for the first time in three years. Leading up to the breakthrough touchdown, quarterback Brewi (lower middle) and receiver Pahno were showing good chemistry but were repeatedly turned back by the Raven’s defense.

Aggressive blocking by the Seahawks offensive unit finally made the bleeding stop. The final score of 59-8 with Eielson on top didn’t have much bearing on the evidence that the Seahawks are playing like a team that wants to win. SHS Principal Trevan Walker commented after the game that he had just saw something new come together there. The obvious focus and energy that kicked in late in the game underscored that.

With new focus and a new benchmark set, the team heads to Nikiski for a 2 p.m. game on Saturday.
