Football: Countryside 35, Seminole 21

SEMINOLE — Countryside (6-2) rebounded from last week's tough district loss to East Lake to dispose of Seminole on Friday night. The Cougars played flawless football in the second half on the way to a 35-21 win.

Both teams came out a little flat in the initial stages of the first quarter. Aaron Dever hooked up with Ja'Quanne Dickens on a 52-yard pass and catch to put the Warhawks up 7-0. Trent Chmelik responded with a 60-yard touchdown pass to Sylvester Kimbrough to tie the score at 7, which stood until halftime.

Dante Satcher marched in from 5 yards out to give the Cougars their first lead, 14-7, in the third quarter. Michael Johnson added a score from a yard out for a 21-7 cushion.

Dever later connected with Matt Wonsick for a 14-yard touchdown to make it a game at 21-14. Satcher would race untouched on 40-yard touchdown run as the Cougars stretched the lead to 28-14.

But Seminole was not to be denied, as Dever hooked up with Jamaal Jackson for a 5-yard touchdown to make it a one-score game. The Cougars capped scoring on a fluke interception return of a yard.

"The offensive line played excellent in the second half," coach Jared Davis said. "We have got to get better."

Seminole's Ra'Quanne Dickens had 33 carries for 228 yards.
