The Wildcats’ bad luck persisted into the second half. They were positioned fourth-and-goal during the third when Sunlake intercepted the ball at the goal line. The Seahawks later blocked another field goal attempt by Wesley Chapel.
The fourth came to a close as Sunlake intercepted again, allowing John Leslie to rush for another TD. Final score: 17-0, Sunlake Seahawks.
