SEYMOUR, Ind. – Silver Creek scored on its second possession, didn’t allow a first down until the second quarter and then ran out of gas in a 24-6 loss to Seymour Friday night in the first round of Class 4A Sectional 23 play.

The Owls (7-3), winners of seven straight, will face Jennings County (1-9) in the second round.

The Dragons (5-5) controlled the clock in the first quarter and scored a touchdown as quarterback Josh Landers powered in from the one-yard line with 2:12 left in the period for a 6-0 lead.

Silver Creek’s defense didn’t allow a first down on Seymour’s first two possessions and held the Owls to just 10 yards in their first six rushing attempts.

“You couldn’t have drawn it up any better,” said Silver Creek coach John Dablow. “You can’t fault the kids’ effort. I think we did everything we were capable on defense of holding them. We just had some tough breaks offensively.”

Seymour scored just before halftime as quarterback Alan Perry rolled left and hit Jackson Morris in the back of the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown with 17 seconds left in the half. Perry ran in the two-point conversion and the Owls led 8-6 at the break.

In the second half, the Owls controlled the ball and the clock.

On the second drive of the second half, Seymour marched down the field and scored as Perry took a snap at the Silver Creek 17, looked right and darted right up the middle for a touchdown with 10:19 left.

The Owls again converted the two-pointer as Nathan O’Mara ran it in, giving Seymour a 16-6 edge. Seymour added another score as Morris sprinted in from 41 yards with 3:20 left. The Dragons managed just 62 yards in the second half.

“It was much closer than the score indicated,” Dablow said. “We just couldn’t get it going in the second half.”
