Bill Iezzi: Martin Displeased

Cherokee quarterback Andrew Martin wasn't pleased with his performance or that of his team Thanksgiving day against visiting Seneca.

Cherokee had to overcome a 13-10 halftime deficit to win, 19-17, and maintain an undefeated record going into the South Jersey Group 4 championship game on Dec. 3 with Oakcrest. 

Martin, a senior, said the Chiefs played a sloppy game. And he was well aware that he contributed to it.

Martin completed 8 of 11 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions, one of which Seneca turned into a 7-0 lead in the top of the second quarter. He'd entered the game completing 85 of 138 passes for 1,207 yards, 17 TDs and 6 interceptions.

Although he threw no touchdown passes, Martin scored all of Cheroke's touchdowns on runs of 1, 1 and 24 yards. The hat trick equalled the total number of rushing touchdowns he had for the season.

That should make him feel a little better.
