Saltillo football rallies past Ripley for first win
Per the Daily Journal
Behind its best scoring output of the season, the Saltillo football team grabbed its first win on Friday night.
Saltillo beat host Ripley, 36-28, with a balanced effort. The Tigers scored a special teams touchdown, three rushing touchdowns, and a passing touchdown that capped off the game.
On defense, the Tigers limited Ripley's star running back Jamal Brooks as best as possible while grabbing an interception and recovering a fumble.
"We got everything clicking the way we think we should be able to," Saltillo coach Ryan Summers said. "The guys played really hard like always, we just made fewer mistakes and were able to take care of business."
To start the game, Caleb Agnew took the opening kickoff back to give the Tigers (1-3) a quick lead, but Ripley battled back to take a 21-14 lead at halftime. Saltillo's second touchdown came on a Tyler Smith rush.
