Football: Strawberry Crest 29, East Bay 14

DOVER — Strawberry Crest defeated East Bay 29-14 Friday.

After an early first-quarter deficit, Strawberry Crest (4-6, 2-5) quarterback Tristan Hyde connected with Arjay Smith on a 1- yard TD on fourth down tying the score minutes before halftime. The score stood at 14-all entering the fourth but the Chargers took control when it mattered most.

Behind an aggressive defensive attack that caused a safety and two rushing TDs by Chris Perez, Strawberry Crest walked away victorious on senior night. As Perez finished the outing with 129 yards and two TDs, coach John Kelly celebrated a win and the birth of his third child.

"I only saw the second half because of the birth of my first son," said Kelly. "Our seniors have been faced with a lot of adversity and it's great for them to end their career on a positive note."
