The Selma High Saints (3-2) won 55-24 on the road Friday night against Sumter Central (1-5).

The team started off slow, according to Saints head coach Christopher Raymond, but they never lost control of the game.

Despite three fumbles in the first half, Selma had a 24-12 lead at half time and never looked back.

“We executed better than we had the last two ball games offensively,” Raymond said. “I know we had well over 200 yards rushing and passing. I thought my defense played pretty well.”

Selma’s next ball game will be on the road against Northridge on Oct. 6.
