Salem settles, routs Loganville

The Salem Seminoles won their second straight game, and even got some freshman in during a 41-17 victory over Loganville on Friday.

Salem (3-2) and the Red Devils (2-2) started out as even as two teams could be with the first drives from each team taking a quarter and a half.

Loganville marched the distance on the first drive of the game, lasting seven minutes, before Salem answered on a long drive of its own.

The third drive resulted in Salem's defense coming up with a stop and Lakash Lackey returned the ensuing punt for a 14-7 Salem Seminoles' lead. Salem then tried a squib kick, which it missed resulting in a field goal right before halftime for a 21-10 lead.

"It was the craziest game I ever seen," Salem coach John Starr said.

In the second half, Salem's defense stepped up with its defensive line matching up with the bigger offensive line of Loganville.

Of course a big play always helps, and Salem got one on Damion Gordon's 75-yard TD pass to Jahad Coleman.

Ahead 28-10 Salem went to its bench the rest of the way.

"After the initial drive our defense finally woke up and played real hard," Starr said. "We knew they were big and able to match physically which was the biggest thing for us. Our defense stepped up and were real physical which was real pleasing."
