The Week 8 Envista Credit Union 580Preps Game of the Week featured a city rarity: a regular-season rematch. Due to the effects of Covid-19 scheduling on the high school football season, Seaman and Washburn Rural faced off in Week 8, as previously scheduled, after already playing in Week 1 because of September schedule changes.
In the end, just like in their Week 1 meeting, the Vikings came away victorious, this time pulling out a 45-21 win.
Seaman dominated early, scoring touchdowns on its first three drives while Washburn Rural went three-and-out on its first three possessions. After a pick-six and another touchdown run, the Vikings led 35-0 at halftime.
Washburn Rural fought back and put forth a valiant effort in the second half, scoring three times, including twice in the fourth quarter.
With the win, Seaman finished the regular season 7-1 and the No. 1 seed in the 5A East playoff bracket. Washburn Rural, at 3-5, will play its first-round playoff game on the road next Friday.
