Published 1:44 am Saturday, September 14, 2013

The Selma High Saints improved their record to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the region by defeating Citronelle 35-0 at Memorial Stadium Friday night.

“Our kids bounced back after a tough loss last week, came out here tonight and showed what they’re made of,” Selma head coach Leroy Miles said. “These guys have set goals for themselves and they’re on their way to achieving them.”

The Saints got on the board late in the first quarter, when Selma quarterback Jesse Bogs found Kadarius Brown down the sideline for a 39-yard touchdown with 1:53 left in the quarter.

After the defense forced a Citronelle punt, the Selma offense scored again.

This time, Boggs found Earnest Gunn for an 18-yard touchdown, giving Selma a 14-0 lead with 11:16 left in the first half.

In addition to his touchdown reception, Gunn had a stellar night on defense, recording two interceptions.

Citronelle’s struggles on offense would continue in the second quarter, going three and out in their next possession and the losing a fumble on the following two possessions.

Selma would take advantage of one of those turnovers, as Boggs would rack up his third touchdown pass of the first half, again connecting with Kadarius Brown with 2:53 left in the half.

The Wildcats received the ball to open the second half and would have their most explosive offensive play of the game moments later.

On a fourth and four from their own 47-yard line, Devonte Orson raced 41 yards down to the Selma 12-yard line. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, the drive would end in yet another fumble.

Boggs’ solid night behind center would continue in the fourth quarter, as he would throw his fourth touchdown pass of the evening. With 10:08 to go in the game, Boggs connected with Lekedrih Rogers for a 35-yard touchdown.

Boggs ended the game 6-for-13 for 152 yards with four touchdowns.

Marquell Moorer would cap the scoring for the evening when he ran the ball in from 15-yards out with 1:41 left in the game. The score gave Selma the final 35-0 margin.

“All I can say is that I’m really proud of our guys,” Miles said.

Selma will again play at home next Friday when they welcome Demopolis. Both teams will enter the game with similar 2-1 overall records and both with 1-1 records in the region. Demopolis lost to Satsuma Friday night on the road.
