Mitchell’s Big Night Highlights Salem’s Rout Of Tribe On Homecoming

Keyton Mitchell played his first two years of football in high school at Carlyle High School, making the transition to Salem this season has been seamless for the young man and last night got to show his former team what they’re missing.  Mitchell carried the ball 10 times for 158 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Salem cruised to a 59-10 victory over the Tribe.

Salem rushed for 365 yards in the game as they outgained Carlyle 413-86, allowing just 10 yards of offense in the 2nd half.  Donovan Williams rushed for 76 yards and 2 more touchdowns.  Also with rushing touchdowns were Trevor Greene who also caught a 29 yard td reception, Bryson Quinn added an 8 yard score, Caden Ice scored from 5 yards out and on the last play of the game, Isaiah Nix went 30 yards for the score.

Salem’s defense forced 7 turnovers in the game, only twice did Salem not turn them into points.  The Wildcats improve to 5-2 overall and will host Freeburg next week.  A win would guarantee Salem a trip to the playoffs for the 2nd straight year and would clinch 2nd in the Cahokia, the best finish for Salem in their short time in the league.  It will be senior night as well next week after the Cats celebrated Homecoming this week.

Also in the Cahokia, Columbia clinched no worse than a share for 1st in the league with their 56-18 win over Breese Central, Freeburg at home over Wesclin on Senior night 42-0.   Out of the league, Red Bud smashed Brentwood, Missouri 38-12.

In the South 7, Cahokia all over Mt Vernon 60-7, Carbondale 50-21 over Althoff, Centralia fell to 1-6 with a 44-7 loss to Marion.
