There are always two home football games that are especially meaningful to the Seymour Owls.
One is homecoming and the other is Senior Night.
The Owls put Senior Night in the win column on Friday by defeating Madison 35-12 at Bulleit Stadium. Earlier in the season, they defeated Jennings County on homecoming.
“It’s been a real emotional week in a lot of ways with me resigning and my mom (passing away), and I’m just glad we were able to play through some of that and finish strong like we did,” Owls coach Jeff Richey said.
The first half was a defensive battle, with the Owls holding a 7-0 lead at intermission. At halftime, the coaches told the players that they wanted them to win the third quarter, and the Owls stepped up their intensity by scoring on their first three possessions to lead 28-6 going into the fourth period.
