Drew Lirag took two interceptions to the end zone Friday, but it still wasn’t enough for the Centennial Centaurs to offset a show of power football by North Delta’s Seaquam Seahawks in the Eastern Conference opener for both teams Friday.
“We established our running game today with a solid performance by our offensive line,” confirmed Seaquam head coach Navin Chand, who dialled up 16 running plays that Christian Carlon-Diaz churned into 176 yards rushing and two majors.
“They also gave QB (Jay) Mather lots of time to throw the ball,” added Chand of line’s ability to help its pivot. Mather went 10-of-14 for 169 yards and a touchdown, as well as rushing for a score of his own.
The only blemish were Lirag’s two pick-six interceptions, but from a Seaquam standpoint, its defence didn’t allow a score.
Justin Eng led the unit with 10 tackles while Manny Sahota had seven more. Kason Randawa had a pick and Taaj Jhooty a fumble recovery.
“It was a tough loss,” admitted Centennial head coach Dino Geremia. “Our offence had a tough time getting anything against a very stingy Seaquam defence.”
