Belmont Bulldogs enter football playoffs second in their conference

Belmont Bulldogs cap five-game season with fourth win, a gutsy 30-22 road win over the Seaquam Seahawks on Nov. 3

The Belmont Bulldogs ascension through the high school football ranks continued with a gutsy 30-22 road win over the Seaquam Seahawks on Saturday.

Playoffs are next for the AA Bulldogs, who finished the regular season second place in the Southern Conference with four wins and one loss.

Belmont’s AA playoff game is to be determined.

“Our staff is extremely proud of these kids and their hard work. Belmont continues to develop its identity as a tough, physical team on both sides of the ball that wears opponents down,” said J.C. Boice, the team’s offensive coordinator.

Saturday’s game was tied at 22 points in the fourth quarter when the Bulldogs turned the momentum around. They stopped the Seahawks at the four-yard line to keep it tied. On the Bulldogs’ subsequent drive, from their own 17 yard line, they risked going for it on the fourth down with four yards to go.

They not only made it, but then proceeded down field to complete the 96-yard drive and game-winning touchdown.

Sam Varao and R.J. Piche each scored two touchdowns and ran for 100-plus yards. Cody Wist made two interceptions for Belmont.
