The Bulldog’s would mount their second half comeback on the backs of a stronger defensive push to the ball that would quiet Seaquam QB Josh Haydu’s Seahawk offense, and a three TD, second half scoring effort that would see the Bulldogs pull to within one point 21-20 on another Boyd TD, and a touchdown by Eli Nelms-Horton who would turn the corner in his own end running the ball to the end zone.

Belmont would keep the pressure on the Seahawks going into the fourth quarter, down by a single touchdown 27-20 with six minutes remaining, looking for the window of opportunity to pull even. The Seahawks would forge ahead on a pair of TD’s by Jalen and Tyson Philpot to turn aside Belmont’s hard fought game effort. Despite a late TD by Tyson Boyd, the Seawhawks would hand the Dawgs a 42-27 loss.
