Two days, two weather delays and two Chapel Hill round-trip bus trips later, Southeast Raleigh gained its first win with a 66-20 victory over the Tigers Friday night at Baker Stadium.
Multiple lightning strikes on Thursday forced postponement until Friday with Bulldogs leading 13-6 and 9:40 remaining in the second quarter. Southeast Raleigh (1-3) led at halftime only 25-13 over the Tigers (2-2) before erupting for 41 second-half points.
The Bulldogs finished with 695 total yards as seven players combined for 10 touchdowns.
