Seeking to establish a little momentum after the first win in program history last week, Seffner Christian took another step back. The Crusaders fell to 1-4 in their inaugural season after a 28-point loss at Winter Garden Foundation Academy (4-1).
A week after Tanner Richardson single-handedly accounted for all of his team's points en route to a 28-8 win over Windermere Prep, Seffner Christian put up just seven on Richardson's touchdown pass to Steven Marsh.
Seffner Christian held its own on defense in the first half, but the key play came on special teams in the third quarter. Foundation, holding a 14-7 lead, returned a kickoff 70 yards, getting deep into Crusaders territory and setting up an easy scoring opportunity to push the margin to 21-7.
"We were still driving and still hanging with them until they broke that," Seffner Christian trainer Paul Goss said. "That really took the air out of them. "We stuck with them, but they were too fast. They really had some speed on that team."
