Barta throws for five TDs in 57-0 Seaman romp past Topeka West



Seaman’s goal on Thursday night was to rebound from Week 3's devastating overtime loss to Junction City and they did so in style.

The Vikings sailed past the Chargers, 57-0, extending their win streak over the Chargers to 17 straight games.

Seaman coach Jared Swafford told TopSports last week that the short week was going to be a challenge, but he believed in his guys.

“I am very proud of the dedication of our kids,'' Swafford said. "They were faced with a lot of adversity this week -- a quick turnaround, an away game and coming off of a loss wasn’t going to be an easy thing to overcome. We trusted each other and the results were great tonight. I am proud of them.”

Seaman’s defensive effort on Thursday night was poetic. The defense was running wild and making impact plays against Topeka West from the first snap to the last.

Seaman sacked West quarterback Malachi Berg seven times and Callen Barta recorded an interception and the game was all Vikings from the beginning.

Camden Barta threw for 149 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter, completing a 7-yard touchdown to Casen Stallbaumer, a 40-yard TD to Brody Gormley and a 58-yard dart to PJ Vargas.

After a Week 3 injury to starting running back Aiden Polter, Seaman looked to Kaden Ireland to take the load for the Vikes and Ireland delivered a big first half with eight carries for 86 yards and two touchdowns.

At the half, Seaman had 255 total yards with five touchdowns and racked up 36 points while West accumulated a total of 46 yards in the half.

Seaman would take the ball to begin the third quarter and nice sustained rushes by Ireland and quick passes drove the Vikings down to the 29-yard line.

Camden Barta would then find Gormley again for a 29-yard touchdown.

The Chargers were handled by Seaman in the second drive of the third quarter which resulted in the Vikings getting the ball back. Just a couple plays later, Barta would throw a 71-yard bomb to Vargas, putting the Vikes up 50-0 to cap off the third quarter.

Alex Mah scoree the only touchdown in the fourth, an 8-yard run to put Seaman up 57-0.

Seaman (3-1) will hit the road to take on a tough Manhattan team next Friday while Topeka West (1-3) will travel to Junction City to take on the Blue Jays.
