Staff Report , Lehigh Acres Citizen

The Cape Coral Seahawks came away with a 48-34 victory at East Lee County Friday night in the final District 5A-11 game of the season.

The Seahawks (6-3, 5-0 district) clinched the district championship with a victory last week, but have been working on cutting down on costly mistakes, turnovers and penalties with the playoffs just two weeks away.

The Seahawks gained an early lead against the Jaguars, who rallied to cut into the lead in the first half. The Seahawks opened a bigger lead in the second half before the Jaguars came back again, but the Seahawks held on for the victory.

The Seahawks close out the regular season schedule next Friday night at Island Coast.

Lehigh (4-5, 4-1) upended Estero 28-7 to clinch a playoff spot as the district runner-up.

In District 6A-11 contests Friday night, Fort Myers locked up the district championship with a 35-7 victory over Bishop Verot and Riverdale shut out North Fort Myers 40-0.

Canterbury 42, Oasis 7: Joe Pascale scored the lone touchdown for Oasis on a seven-yard run in the fourth quarter, long after the outcome had been decided.

"They were the better team," said Oasis coach Jason Bowman. "We did not play a perfect game. Out defense was good despite giving up 42 points. Offensively, we made a lot of mental errors, turnovers and bad penalties."

The Sharks (7-2) head into the Florida Christian Association of Private & Parochial Schools Southern Conference playoffs next Friday. They will travel to either the Academy of the Lakes or Lakeside.
