Woodrow Wilson hands Seagoville its first loss, 49-34

SEAGOVILLE - Carl Harris and costly turnovers proved too much for Seagoville to overcome as undefeated Woodrow Wilson cruised to a 49-34 victory Friday.

Harris had 218 yards rushing and three touchdowns while the previously unbeaten Dragons turned the ball over five times. "Every time they turned the ball, over our goal was to counter-punch and score," said Woodrow's Harris. "We wanted to capitalize on every mistake they made."

Woodrow jumped out to a 14-0 lead barely five minutes into the first quarter, thanks to big runs by Harris on the first two drives to set up scores.

Seagoville got close in the second quarter after its defense got a fumble recovery to set up a 5-yard touchdown run by Kelton Coleman that made it 21-14. Coleman had 211 total yards and five touchdowns for Seagoville.

But that was as close as the Dragons got.

The Wildcats then put the game out of reach. Piers Christian's fourth touchdown pass made it 42-20 following a fourth-down penalty that extended the drive.

Harris capped the night off with a 57-yard burst up the middle for a touchdown with 4:07 to play.

"The real season starts next week with district," Harris said. "And we're going to plan on taking this district title home and bringing it back to Woodrow Wilson."
