The first playoff game for the Newport Mesa Seahawks PeeWee Blue team was one of redemption as it defeated the Chiefs of Orange, 20-6, a team it had lost to the previous week.
The game started off right for the Seahawks when Nikolas DeKeyzer recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.
Moving the ball on the ground was Jason Simaan, who gained 122 yards, including a 60-yard burst thanks in part to key blocking from Michael Brown, Garrett Cleary, Jack Beeker and Max Peterson. Wide receiver William Hunter once again proved to have sticky hands with a 40-yard grab and another catch for a 42-yard touchdown. Others picking up yardage running were Alan Yee and Nick Yi. Receivers Vik Ghadi and Chris Rybus provided quarterback Stephen Von Der Ahe many options for a total of 210 yards passing, including a 38-yard touchdown pass to Noah Linkon. Max Morin then converted the extra points.
