One good half wasn't enough for Cape Coral Friday night.

The Seahawks led the Immokalee Indians 10-7 at the half, but the visitors rolled to a 30-10 victory at the Seahawks' Dave Warkentin Field.

The Seahawks dip to 2-4 (1-1 district).

Cape Coral senior QB Trey Daniels throws a touchdown pass to sophomore receiver Jordan Eason in the first half Friday night against Immokalee.

Immokalee's big second half was highlighted by a 65-yard interception return and a 78-yard punt return. It was the interception that turned the tide.

The Indians (5-2) had tied the game at 10-10 on Jesus Velasco's 21-yard field goal in the third quarter. Cape's Dylan Buintrager came in for his first snap at quarterback. His first pass attempt was picked off by D'Ernest Johnson, who took it back for a touchdown.

"All of a sudden. Don't throw the ball out there in the flat," Seahawks coach Larry Gary said. "They had three key plays that broke the game open."

Immokalee quarterback Louinelson Celian scored on a 13-yard run and D.J. Jackson raced 78 yards on a punt return as the Indians put the game out of reach.

Cape unveiled a new Seahawk statue before the game, with the players touching it for luck as they came onto the field Friday night.

As the game started, the Seahawks got some luck. The snap got away from Celian on the first play from scrimmage, setting up Matteo Perez's 26-yard field goal.

Indians punter Jimmy Victorin was tackled on his own 35 after another bad snap. Cape drove to the Immokalee 18, where Trey Daniels hit Jason Eason with an 18-yard touchdown pass. Perez's kick gave the Seahawks a 10-0 lead six minutes into the game.

That's about as far as luck took the Seahawks.

Jackson caught a 23-yard pass from Celian for Immokalee's first score.

Tyler McQueen and Rasheed Jiles turned away Indians drives in the second quarter with interceptions deep in Cape territory.

The Seahawks (2-4, 1-1 district) will be home next Friday night against Mariner (2-4, 0-2).

"We've just got to come back and get ready for next week," Gary said. "We've got Mariner. We need to get that one and get our kids back into it."
