Seahawks spoil Turner's debut with Chargers

Aug 13, 2007 - 3:07 AM By Tim Powers PA SportsTicker Contributing Writer

SAN DIEGO (Ticker) - Norv Turner's debut with the San Diego Chargers may leave a bad taste in his mouth.

Turner and the revamped coaching staff saw the Chargers commit eight penalties - including a costly fourth-quarter infraction on the game-winning field goal - as the Seattle Seahawks defeated San Diego, 24-16, in a preseason matchup on Sunday night.

Seattle's Josh Brown missed his initial attempt at a 41-yard field goal, but the Chargers were whistled for having 12 men on the field. That moved Brown five yards closer and he converted the go-ahead score with 7:18 to go.

Marquis Weeks tacked on a six-yard touchdown run with 1:55 to play to extend the Seahawks' advantage to 24-16.

Matt Hasselback gave Seattle an early lead with a 31-yard touchdown pass to Deion Branch in the first quarter. Seneca Wallace took over midway through the second quarter after Hasselbeck completed 4-of-6 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.

Seattle added a fourth-quarter score on a 17-yard touchdown from Wallace to Ben Obomanu to pull within 16-14.

While star running back LaDainian Tomlinson sat out for San Diego, reserve quarterback Billy Volek led the offense, engineering a four-play, 55-yard touchdown drive to tie the game at 7-7 in the second quarter. Volek finished 13-of-18 for 143 yards and a TD.

Starter Philip Rivers played until the middle of the second quarter and completed 5-of-7 passes for 71 yards.

Nate Kaeding tacked on three field goals in the second half to push San Diego's advantage to 16-7.

Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander had just two carries for four yards.
