Three days after game began, Seneca defeats John Hardin 24 - 19

The Redhawks were outgained 293-281 in total yards, but had 275 of their yards on the ground.

Three days after the game began, Seneca High School’s football team won 24-19 at John Hardin on Monday night.

The game was halted Friday by inclement weather with 4:52 left in the first half and Seneca holding a 15-6 lead. After the game resumed Monday, Seneca pushed its lead to 21-6 on Travon Harris’s 26-yard touchdown run – which, as it turned out, was the Redhawks’ game-clinching score.

The Redhawks were outgained 293-281 in total yards, but had 275 of their yards on the ground.

“We ran the ball the way we wanted to and (we) got some defensive stops,” said Seneca coach Lavell Boyd. “Our kicker, Chris Hodson, was a big deal for us. He punted down into the 10(-yard-line) three times.”

Hodson added an insurance 29-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

Unlike most teams that will have to play their next game this weekend, the Redhawks won’t have to take the field again until September 5, when they play Doss in their home opener.
