Seminole shuts out Sequoyah, 48-0

Moniz sees action at QB

SEQUOYAH — There was some good news for Sequoyah football fans Friday night against Seminole. After a five-month absence, quarterback Daniel Moniz finally returned from injury and saw action in the first half at Pope Athletic Complex.

The rest of the story is forgettable for the home team faithful.

Seminole proved too fast, too big and too good against Sequoyah, rolling to a 48-0 Class 3A non-district football victory and a 5-0 record. The Eagles dropped to 3-2.

Moniz, expected to have a standout season in his senior year, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his team’s camp last May. Moniz was cleared to play against the Chieftains, but he did not enter the lineup until it was already too late with the Eagles trailing 22-0 late in the first quarter.

Moniz completed 2-of-6 passes for 14 yards and ran four times for minus six yards before sitting out the second half. On this night, it appeared nothing would have helped against the Chieftains anyway.

Seminole senior Papi White piled up 236 yards on eight carries, scoring touchdowns of 80, 54 and 35 yards before leaving the game after the second snap of the second quarter. The visitors finished with 523 yards in total offense, 440 coming in the first half.

White, super quick at hitting the holes or skirting the ends, dodged and darted 80 yards on the game’s first play to give Seminole a 6-0 lead. Just over three minutes later, White broke free through the middle for 54 yards and caught a two-point conversion pass it make it 14-0.

Chieftain quarterback Doc Harvey scored from the one, giving his team a 22-0 bulge just over halfway into the opening period. White continued his onslaught with a 35-yard bolt just 45 seconds into the second quarter, upping his team’s lead to 30-0. He never returned.

Sequoyah reached Seminole territory three times in the first half, coming closest to scoring when Sam Lederman came up short on a 55-yard field goal try with 1:50 left in the first period.

With the clock running constantly in the second half, the Eagles continued to drive and reached the Chieftains’ 15- and 4-yard lines. Facing fourth and three on the first series, Will Shea came up a yard short at the 15.

Trailing 42-0 and looking at fourth and goal from the eight in the fourth quarter, the Eagles lost a yard, giving way to a 91-yard march by Seminole for the game‘s final touchdown.

The Eagles return to District 3A-5 play on Friday against Blackwell at Pope Athletic Complex. Blackwell stayed winless with a 35-0 loss to Metro Christian.
