Seabreeze donned black helmets on homecoming and routed Titusville high 59-14 at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach this past week.
“We’ve bounced back after two tough losses with two big wins. Hopefully we are moving towards how good we can be. We still got work to do. We did well despite all the distractions with homecoming,” said March Beach, Seabreeze’s head coach.
The game also was a homecoming for Titusville head coach Andy Price, who coached Warner for 13 seasons and led them to three straight title games.
“It’s felt fine being back, but I wanted to look better. We tried to run the ball and keep their offense off the field, but it didn’t work. I do like the fact that we didn’t quit,” said Price.
Trevaughn Rodriguez ran for 156 yards with two touchdowns while Charles Nelson ran for 105 yards with a touchdown and had a 26-yard receiving score for Seabreeze.
Seabreeze started the game with a bang when Justin Sampson returned the opening kickoff 77 yards for a score to lead 7-0.
“We expected a squib or short kick. That was a good start. We started with a bang two weeks in a row,” added Beach.
Connor Blair’s six yard touchdown pass to Jalen Hinson put Seabreeze up 14-0 in the opening quarter.
The Sandcrabs led 17-0 after Jordan Patch’s 37-yard field goal in the first quarter.
Blair threw a 38 yard bomb to Anthony Campanella to put Seabreeze up 24-0 in the second quarter.
Titusville scored on a 34-yard touchdown run from Myles Waters making it 24-7 in the second quarter.
The Terrriors wouldn’t score again until Josh Wayner threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Tommy Cobb in the fourth quarter.
Blair finished with 67 yards passing with two touchdowns for the Sandcrabs.
Alex Martins ran for 86 yards to pace Titusville.
“Alex is just a sophomore. He can be a very good player. He had a good night. We have three running backs all dealing with injuries,” added Price.
Mainland was held to 143 total yards in a 20-0 loss to Sanford Seminole. Ronnie Moore had 164 total yards with three touchdowns and Newk Tillman threw for 277 for Seminole. Quinton Powell had two sacks with a fumble recovery for Mainland. The Buccaneers were 0-for-10 on third downs.

This week’s top games
Mainland (2-2, 0-0) at New Smyrna (4-0, 1-0): New Smyrna Beach is rested while Mainland is coming off a loss. It’s a big game in the area and district 9-6A. The Barracudas have been great.
Mainland has been up and down. This could be one of the best games all season.
Warner (4-1, 2-0) at Trinity (3-1, 2-0): Two of the area’s small schools battle it out. Warner has more talent and depth but Trinity’s Marquion Lane, a DeLand transfer, can light it up.
Flagler Palm Coast (3-2, 1-0) at Spruce Creek (2-3, 0-1): Two of the area’s largest schools square off in a district 1-8A matchup so both want a win. This should be a competitive game.
Deltona (0-5, 0-1) at Pine Ridge (0-5, 0-1): It’s the battle of Deltona as two schools are literally down the street from one another. It’s also a district 9-6A matchup. Both teams badly need a win.
