With 6:44 to go in the first period, quarterback Cajun Pritchett was intercepted by Carver’s Eric Relf, who returned the pick 50 yards for the opening score and a 7-0 Carver lead.

Relf added an 8-yard scoring run to make it 21-0 with 11:23 to go in the first half.
One minute and 10 seconds later, a Selma fumble turned into another Carver score when Carver’s Randy Thomas scooped up the loose ball and rumbled in for the touchdown as the Wolverines enjoyed a 28-0 halftime lead.
