One of football's golden rules is, "You can't make mistakes against good teams."

Seaford tailback Aaron WhiteThe Blue Jays, off to a promising start in 2001, found that out the hard way in a 26-0 loss to a St. Elizabeth squad that gave Delmar a handful before succumbing in the Division II state finals last season.

Seaford actually played the Vikings tough, yielding a 199-161 advantage to St. E's in total yardage.

But turnovers and penalties -- including a fumble that was returned for a touchdown -- led to three St. E's touchdowns that put the Blue Jays on the losing end.

Such mistakes put the Jays down 20-0 at halftime as they fell to 1-2 overall entering the Henlopen Conference Southern Division schedule at defending Division II state champion Delmar on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m.

Seaford contributed greatly to another St. E touchdown drive with three consecutive penalties totalling 43 yards that set the Vikings up for a 1-yard touchdown run.

Tailback Aaron White led the Blue Jays with 93 yards rushing on 22 carries. Fullback Brian Batson, a 100-yard rusher in each of Seaford's first two games, was limited to six carries by a St. Elizabeth defense that keyed on him throughout.

Quarterback Nick Pegelow had his most difficult outing with 4 completions in 10 attempts and 2 interceptions.
