Cottondale sinks Seahawks 52-6


The Franklin County Seahawks continue to search for their first win, after traveling to Cottondale Friday night and sustaining a 52-6 loss to the Hornets.

After trailing 30-0 at the half, the Seahawks got on the board in the third quarter, as sophomore Brayden McCall caught a seven-yard pass from junior Evan Stanley.

“It was a rough night,” said Coach Dirk Strunk. “We had opportunities early on in the game that we didn’t capitalize on. The kids kept fighting until the end.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do.  It is a building process that is going to take time,” he said.

Stanley completed 8 of 21 passes for 111 yards, and was intercepted four times. McCall caught four of those passes, for 30 yards, while junior Wyatt Abercrombie brought down three passes for 55 yards and senior Larry Winchester one for 26 yards.

Senior Wil Varnes led the team with 31 yards on the ground on seven carries, the only significant Seahawk rusher on the night. Varnes also had an interception, for 33 yards, as did sophomore Reece Juno, for 21 yards.

Winchester had three kickoff returns for a total of 62 yards, and McCall one for 15 yards. Winchester led the team in tackles, with 10 solos and two assists, with Varnes tallying four tackles and two assists, junior Mason Moses with four, one for a loss; junior Parker Mock two solos and three assists; junior Kevin Sullivan with two solos and two assist; and Juno with three solos.
