The Sandcrabs failed to reach the end zone in their first game under coach Saunier.
While the student section was its normal, colorful self, and the cheerleaders were vibrant from the start of the game to its conclusion, the only good thing about Seabreeze’s 34-0 loss to St. Augustine is it was just an exhibition.
The Sandcrabs were dominated in every aspect by the Yellow Jackets, both the varsity and junior varsity teams, on Friday, Aug. 21, at Municipal Stadium.
After allowing a quick touchdown on the first drive of the game, head coach Skip Saunier walked over to his defense and yelled, “This ain’t practice no more, men.”
“We’re going to have some growing pains,” Saunier said. “We had chances to put points on the board, but we threw two interceptions, had two big holdings and were flagged in crucial moments of the game. But this is what this is game is for. I feel bad for the teams whose games were rained out; for a lot of teams because these are big, critical moments that help you get the kinks out.”
Seabreeze will spend the upcoming week getting those visible kinks out of their game, and they also hope to welcome injured linemen and running backs who couldn’t play.
