Seagoville takes over lead in District 11-4A
By Jeff Andrews
A year removed from a 2-8 season, Seagoville is making a surprise run at the District 11-4A title.
Seagoville (6-1, 4-0) took sole possession of first place after an overtime win over Dallas Pinkston and Dallas Kimball’s loss to Dallas Carter.
Trailing 27-21 late in the fourth quarter, Seagoville forced a turnover on downs with Pinkston nearing the red zone, and Erick Evans scored with 1:15 left in the game to tie the score before the extra point attempt failed.
Evans scored on a 26-yard run in overtime to give Seagoville the win. He finished with 145 yards and three touchdowns.
Evans and the running game have been the catalyst for the Dragons all year. Evans leads the team in rushing with 751 yards and 14 touchdowns, but Kaillion Hughey (710 yards, five touchdowns), quarterback Kelton Coleman (595 yards, 13 touchdowns) and Dontrail Russell (488 yards, five touchdowns) give Seagoville plenty of options.
The offense averages 46.4 points per game.
Seagoville has hardly wrapped up the 11-4A title though. It plays Kimball (5-2, 3-1) on Friday and Dallas South Oak Cliff (6-1, 3-1) the week after.
