On the Bulldogs first offensive possession Brian Eletti scored on a 45 yard touchdown run and scored on the 2-point conversion to make it 10-0 in the first three minutes of the game.
Eletti would later score on a 67-yard touchdown run to make it 18-0 at the half. Eletti would have a great day as he carried the ball 15 times and ran for 195 yards with two successful 2-point conversions. Dan Connelly did a very nice job in his debut and commanding the offense. Connelly was 2/2 for 35 yards passing and one passing touchdown completed to Rich Wisor in the corner of the end zone.
Mother Nature must be a fan of Seaford baseball. Despite a gloomy forecast and incessant rain in preceding days, the skies cleared and the sun came out just in time for the Eighth Annual Seaford Varsity Alumni Baseball game held earlier this summer. Before a big crowd of family, alumni, teachers, and friends at Seaman’s Neck Park, Seaford’s “old-timers” once again took the field against a group of recently graduated Vikings’ ballplayers, the “young guys.”
The Seaford Varsity Alumni Baseball Club, organized and managed by Perry Vitucci, class of 1982, consists of former Seaford High School varsity baseball players who come together each year for the event in order to raise money for the program they participated in years ago. Funds have been used to purchase an outfield homerun fence for the varsity field and have provided over $2,000 in scholarship awards for graduating seniors on the baseball team.
