Saline celebrates Homecoming with district 1B opening wins over Dodson

The script was pretty much the same as the boys and girls hoop teams from Saline High School honored 2022 Homecoming Queen, Georgia Robinson and King, Ethan Roberts by blasting Dodson in the district 1B opener for both teams. 

In the girls game, Robinson made sure nothing was going to spoil her special night as she scored 16 of her game high 22 points in the first half to stake Saline to a commanding 46-13 lead in the 65-27 victory. The win, which broke a six-game losing streak, improved the Lady Bobcats record to 7-18 overall and 1-0 in the district standings. The Gray twins, Alaya and Alana also pitched in with their best combined effort of the year by scoring 16 and 13 points apiece. For Dodson the streak of futility that they have endured all season reached 22 straight games without a victory. Beauboeuf led Dodson with 14 points. 

The boys also put the game away early as they exploded for a season best 37 points in the first quarter in the 78-26 win. The 52-point margin of victory was by far the best of the year as was the 13 players that tallied in the contest. Titus Jackson, who finished with a game high 21 points, made four three pointers in the first quarter to pace the early deluge. Stephen Brown also reached double figures with 11 to help Saline improve to 12-15 overall and an early perch in the catbird seat of district play. Duff, Ingram and Box scored eight each for Dodson who dressed out only six players and fell to 2-22 on the year.
