SEMINOLE — The Chieftains of Seminole scored on their first seven possessions en route to a 55-12 humbling of outmanned Westville Friday night.

The final score wasn’t close to being indicative of the domination as a continuous-running clock was employed the entire second half. Seminole had just nine offensive snaps the final 24 minutes and both Westville touchdowns came against reserves.

Seminole, 4-2 overall, upped its District 3A-3 record to 3-2 after leading 55-0 at halftime.

Braxton Street, a 160-pound sophomore, tallied four opening-half touchdowns on receptions of 27, 6 and 57 yards and a 66-yard punt return.

Vcake Wassana threw the 27 and 6-yard touchdown passes while Brendan Rodriquez tossed the 57-yarder.

By the intermission, Seminole had rolled up 274 offensive yards while the visitors had 20 yards, all via the rush.

None of Seminole’s seven first-half scoring drives took more than four plays.

The Chieftains led 21-0 after one quarter as sophomore Jason Batise recorded scoring runs of 15 and 21 yards.

Isaiah Cochrane, a sophomore., notched scoring runs of 13 and 12 yards in the second quarter.

“This was a game we had to win,” said Seminole head coach Mike Snyder. “We fumbled the ball a couple of times but I thought we were crisp on offense and defense. I was very pleased and we also got to use a lot of players.”

Batise was Seminole’s leading rusher with 77 yards on seven attempts, followed by Cochrane with 72 yards on five carries. Quinten Moore had a 43-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Wassana completed 5-of-7 passes for 113 yards.

Westville threw just three passes, completing none, and suffered an interception to Rodriquez. Rodriquez also converted 7-of-8 extra-point kicks.

Westville dropped to 2-6 overall and 1-4 in the district.

Seminole is scheduled to play at Locust Grove Friday.
