Selma heads to Greenville for Jamboree

A second-half surge from the Selma Saints proved insufficient to stop Greenville offense as the Tigers held on to a 33-22 win in a Jamboree on Friday night.  It was the Saints’ defense that struck first with a fumble recovery with 8:07 remaining in the first. Selma was unable to capitalize on the other side of the ball; however, leaving Greenville quarterback Javion Posey open to counterattack with a 25-yard touchdown run.

A Greenville sack courtesy of Jeremiah Owens set the Tigers up for a short field and an 8-yard touchdown run from Arick Boggan with 6:03 remaining in the half.

Boggan would strike again with barely a minute left in the half, giving the Tigers a 20-0 cushion at the half.

The Saints found the end zone on three consecutive trips, including a pair of touchdowns from Gabriel Wade, narrowing the margin to two scores. Though time ultimately proved Selma’s biggest opponent.
