Saline football blanks Skyline for 7th straight SEC-Red title in historic fashion

SALINE – For the seventh year in a row, Saline’s football team is the king of the hill in the Southeastern Conference Red.

The Hornets blasted Ann Arbor Skyline 63-0 en route to the conference championship and their 38th consecutive win in conference play.

The 63-point margin of victory is Saline’s largest ever, according to michigan-football.com, and it was the team’s widest margin of victory since it beat Brantford Assumption (ON) 61-0 last year.

It’s been seven years since Saline (5-0, 5-0 SEC-Red) has lost a game to an SEC-Red opponent, showcasing pure dominance in a competitive conference.

Friday’s game was just about over before the first quarter ended as the Hornets led 14-0 behind a touchdown pass from Larry Robinson to Nate Holmberg and a 6-yard rushing score from Robinson.

The flood gates opened in the second quarter with touchdown runs from Robinson and Josh Rush a touchdown pass from Robinson to Luke Darmos and a 42-yard TD pass from Robinson to Nick Walper as the Hornets went into halftime ahead 42-0.

Saline tacked on three more scores in the second half to push its point total to 63, the team’s most points scored since hanging 64 on Ann Arbor Huron in 2017.

The Hornets will close out the regular season at Grand Blanc next week, while Skyline (1-3) will look to bounce back against Ypsilanti Lincoln at home.
