OLD ORCHARD BEACH — Quarterback Dylan Creswell rushed for two touchdowns and cornerback/running back Erik Hogan made plays all over the field as Old Orchard Beach shut out Traip Academy 30-0 in a Class D South football game Saturday afternoon.

Creswell had difficulty finding holes for much of the game and managed just 47 yards on 17 carries, but the junior was able to grind out crucial yardage near the goal line.

“(Creswell) runs hard,” said Old Orchard Beach Coach Dean Plante. “He’s one of our better running backs – we use our quarterback in kind of an interesting way.”

Creswell also passed for 54 yards and accounted for a pair of 2-point conversions (one rush, one pass).

“His passing is coming along,” said Plante. “When he fine-tunes that, he’ll be tough to defend.”

Hogan, meanwhile, blocked a punt on the game’s opening drive to give the Seagulls (2-2) the ball at the Traip 45.

Hogan came up big again in the third quarter, with his team holding an 8-0 lead. Traip (1-3) took over after recovering a fumble and had third-and-goal at the 8. On a play-action pass to the right side, Hogan intercepted a pass at the 2.

“As soon as I got that interception, I knew the game was over,” said Hogan. “I knew that we were going to capitalize and I knew that we would finish the drive.”

The interception led to Creswell’s second touchdown run.

“I think we wore (Traip) down over time and our seniors stepped up and made big plays,” said Plante.

Hogan also rushed for 65 yards.

“My role is to do whatever the team needs from me,” said Hogan. “Whether it’s blocking punts or playing corner, or running and catching passes – everything, that’s my role.”

Old Orchard pushed its lead to 24-0 when Joe Anderson intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown on a drive following Creswell’s second touchdown.

“Joe’s (Anderson) pick-six after we just scored was kind of the nail in the coffin,” said Plante.

It was Traip’s third straight loss.

“It’s frustrating. It really is, because we’re not that bad, but at the same time, we’re not that good,” said Traip Coach Ron Ross.

Both offenses struggled to move the ball, but the Seagulls were able to capitalize on four turnovers (three interceptions and one fumble).

“We’re just not very good right now. We made too many mistakes. We’re not making good reads from the quarterback spot,” said Ross. “We just have to get better. Right now, we’re not very good.”
