HARRAH — Bend-but-don’t-break Seminole took advantage of five Harrah turnovers to post a 14-0 non-district triumph Friday night.
One of three interceptions by Seminole was returned 23 yards for a touchdown by sophomore Cameron Gunville in the second quarter.
Seminole’s second-half touchdown came on a 10-yard Jordan Rodriguez reception from Cade Hammond. After failing on a 2-point conversion attempt after the first touchdown, Seminole converted the second 2-point attempt as Hammond passed to Chico Baker.
Harrah, 0-2, outrushed Seminole 165-93 but lost two fumbles.
Seminole rushed for 93 yards on 31 carries and passed for 33 yards.
Baker returned an interception 45 yards to the Harrah 15 in the first quarter but a first-down holding penalty waylaid the threat.
Late in the second quarter, Harrah came up short on a 37-yard field goal attempt.
Thunder Lena and Gavin Parks recorded a fumble recovery apiece.
“This was a good win for us,” Seminole coach Mike Snyder said. “They are very good on defense. We played good defense. When we got ahead 14-0, we didn’t take any chances.”
Seminole, 2-0, had three starters sidelined. Kaden Thomas is having knee surgery next week and is out for the season. Preston Flynt is still being evaluated and Chris Earles didn’t play Friday because of a leg injury.
“We overcame some adversity,” Snyder said.
Seminole will launch its home season at 7:30 p.m. Friday versus Tecumseh.
