South River football coach Dave Summey takes pride in his defense's ability to stop opponents.
That pride radiated to Summey's offensive charges last night after No. 12-ranked Seahawks squeaked by No. 20 Perry Hall, 14-13.
"Our backs ran hard and our offensive line is really coming on strong," said Summey after watching his Seahawks raise their record to 6-1. "Both teams were basically similar with ball-control offenses. We were trying to keep away from them because we knew they had a ball-control offense, and they were trying to keep it away from us.
"What it came down to, was we kind of had the edge in that category."
The Seahawks' offense, which was in top form in last week's 54-0 romp over Lansdowne, mounted a 14-play drive to eat up the game's remaining 7 minutes, 31 seconds to preserve the victory.
