SEAFORD, De - The Laurel Bulldogs scored the game's final 19 points, all in the fourth quarter, to come from behind and beat rival Seaford 19-6 on Thursday night and take the Laurel-Seaford Lions Club Trophy for an 18th consecutive year.

The Blue Jays took a 6-0 lead as the first half came to a close when Isaiah Lake hit Leroy McLaughlin for a 6-yard touchdown. The 6-0 lead would stand thru the half.
