16-7 the Final Score in the Northern Burlington Game, Seneca becomes 2-1

Posted Saturday, September 29, 2007 by Doug Melegari
The Seneca Golden Eagles football team fought a tough battle Friday Night against Northern Burlington. In the first quarter, Northern Burlington had earned seven points with a touchdown and a good kick. For the Golden Eagles, they had a total of four fumbles and zero points by the end of the third quarter which made fans cling to their seats as it appeared that the Golden Eagles would lose a second game in the regular season. But the football players put on a show of amazement and had a spectacular fourth quarter and won the Northern Burlington game Friday Night.

The first Seneca touchdown occurred when Sean Carroll grabbed a fumbled ball. It was not just a regular touchdown either. It meant a lot to every Golden Eagle fan. A renewed energy could be felt on the field and in the stands. After the touchdown, Tom Schiraldi came in with a good kick. Two additional points were scored on a saftey.Then Tim Meise had the ball and ran in for a touchdown. Once again, Seneca's kick was good. Seneca finally sealed the game when Dustin Worthman came in with an interception. The final score was 16 to 7, Seneca. They have improved their record to 2-1. Seneca won the Lenape game and lost the Shawnee game. Seneca's Sean Carroll and Vince Henry both told me after the game "It was an ugly win". Both Vince and Sean agreed that a win is a win and what mattered is that they won.

The marching band, color guard, and cheerleaders once again deserve credit. They kept fans supporting the Golden Eagles to the very end. If it were not for this team, the cheerleaders, the band, and the color guard, what would be the place everyone now calls " The Home of the Golden Eagles"? If one lesson could be learned with this game, it would be the following you can turn around and win a game in the very last minutes and seconds of the fourth quarter.

The Golden Eagles will play in an away game on Saturday, October 6, at 3:00 p.m. The game will be played on Woodrow Wilson's territory.
