The Saline football team left no doubt that they wanted the SEC Red title all to themselves Friday night as they rolled over Ann Arbor Skyline 70-0.

The 70 points is a school record for the Hornets, beating the record of 69 set in 2016 when the Hornets beat Windsor (Ont.) Holy Names 69-13.

It did not take the Hornets long to get rolling when CJ Carr hit Caid Fox with a 72-yard TD pass just two plays into the game for a quick 7-0 lead.

Touchdown runs by James Rush and LaDanian Woods gave Saline a 21-0 lead just three minutes into the game and the rout was on.

The Hornets returned a fumble for a score and Carr would connect for TD passes with Woods and Lincoln Keys for a 42-0 lead after one quarter.

Carr hit Dylan Mesman with a two-yard TD pass and Josh Folk returned a punt for a score and the lead grew to 56-0 at the half.

Malik Eisemann and Tommy Carr would find the endzone with TD runs in the second half for the Hornets to hit the 70-point plateau and a new school record.

CJ Carr finished 8 of 10 passing for 156 yards and four TD’s.

The stifling Saline defense held Skyline to -39 yards in total offense and no first downs in the game.

The Hornets will wrap up the regular season in a big way when they host 8-0 Lake Orion in a battle of undefeated teams Friday night.
